The Sushi project needs a good Head Sushi Chef/CEO. I am nominating myself (SuperGenius aka Kenneth Hurley). I am willing to support anyone that is a good candidate and has the projects best interest in mind. From the qualifications presented, I personally fit every requirement and I am passionate and excited about the future of Sushi.
Crypto or tech native.
I’ve been swing trading & using exotic options trading since 2006 (Iron Condors, Saddles, Calendar Spreads, etc)
I’ve been in crypto space since 2016. First Mining Ethereum, built my own mining rigs, then swing trading BTC and ETH, and contract and dApp development
I am passionate about Sushi succeeding and the DAO succeeding
Experience in a senior management position.
I’ve worked at Amazon, Google, nVidia, EA and had 3 of my own Startups, Interim CTO, CTO and CEO
Experience with treasury & cash flow management, and general finance and budgeting.
I took one of my startups public in 2005 and I was personally responsible and drafted Management Discussion and Analysis (MDNA) of the financials
Attorneys that I’ve worked with say I should have been an Attorney, and CPA’s say I should have been a CPA, but I prefer Very Technical CEO/CTO.
Ability to build consensus and relationships among executives, partners, and the workforce.
I very easily communicate up and down the stack. I can talk Tech with engineers and Strategy with C-Level Execs and even draft strategic communications and technical documents.
Corporate strategy experience.
I was the CEO of all the aforementioned U.S. based startups driving strategy
I am very knowledgeable in Corporate structure and formation in the U.S. and some familiarity with Corporate structure in several other countries
Implementation of human resources and personnel management.
For my startups, I also implemented the HR and personnel management for the company
I know it takes more than one person to run a successful company and I am able to hire the right people quickly to effectively delegate
Experience with crypto governance.
Beyond just understand Crypto governance, I am also very experienced in dealing with U.S. Regulatory Authorities, since I took my company public and I crafted the quarterlies and yearly disclosures working side by side with a CPA
I’ve had zero inquiries by U.S. Regulatory Authorities about any of my businesses
The lack of inquiries stems from the fact I’m very transparent and honest with disclosures. I also put my money (or time) where my mouth is. With the public company, I didn’t take a salary for 7 years and instead I took stock options and I was locked out of selling for 8 years, as I was a control person.
Ability to create an open & transparent Sushi working environment
I’m willing to DOXX myself and also strike a balance between a reasonable salary with more backend Sushi based on performance

Familiarity overseeing multiple departments (Engineering, Product Design, Support, HR, Ops, Marketing, Business Development)
Engineering, primarily, but the public company was a Video Game Publisher, which required overseeing all departments HR, Ops, Logistics, Marketing, Business Development and Finance Finance isn’t mentioned in the requirements, but I believe that this is essential to understand when dealing with DeFI.
I have a Computer Science and Master in Business Administration degrees (after starting and learning these skills in the real world)
The project really needs a good CEO that is extremely technical. These are hard to find, but it just so happens my extensive career has molded the perfect candidate for this position.
Consider this my resume for the Head Sushi Chef/CEO Position
The outcome would be to have a great CEO who can help build the Sushi ECO system and is passionate about the crypto DeFI space.
Other candidates might be a better fit, I am OK with that as long as we find the best candidate to make Sushi a success.
