LAS VEGAS, Sept. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AXEL, the award-winning technology company providing users with true ownership and privacy protection over their digital data and content, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeff Maher to the role of Vice President, effective immediately. Jeff will help lead communications and creative efforts for the upcoming launch of the company's AXEL Token and development of its proprietary blockchain platform, the AXEL Exchange. He will also produce original content across AXEL's social media channels, as part of an initiative to educate the public about blockchain technology, and its real-world benefits. The AXEL Exchange will empower users to monetize and control the privacy and custody of their digital content – whether it's music, videos, pictures, documents, games, or other programs and services.

"Blockchain is taking over the world by storm," said Ben Ow, President and CTO of AXEL. "But, many people still only associate blockchain with bitcoins, and as a way to get rich quick. Most don't understand what the technology is all about, and how it's actually applicable to our daily lives. We're eager to work with Jeff, who will use his experience with consumer audiences and the media industry to convey the human element to blockchain, so people can realize that this isn't an elite technology for a selected few, but that we will all benefit from this innovation."

Jeff Maher spent the past 14 years as a TV anchor, reporter, and multi-media journalist in 4 US markets, including Sacramento, Albuquerque, and Midland, Texas. He is viewed in the broadcasting industry as an innovator, recognized as being among the first journalists in the country to shoot entire features using miniature cameras, smartphones, drones, and was also among the first to create a commercialized YouTube channel. Most recently, he spent the past 3 years as anchor and host of 'Wake Up with the CW' in Las Vegas. Maher has received top awards by Associated Press, New Mexico Broadcasters Association, and Society of Professional Journalists.

"I am absolutely thrilled to join the AXEL team," noted Maher. "I've always wanted to be involved in something big. And I truly believe that AXEL, its incredibly talented team and business model, are leading the way in what is sure to be the future of digital transactions and exchanges. In my line of work, I know exactly what it's like to deal with challenges and not have control over my digital and video content. I'm so excited to spread the good word about what this company is doing, and how it will ultimately give creative and financial control back to content creators of the world."
