MGT Capital Investments has appointed Tiffany Madison as director of corporate communications.

Madison was previously the CEO of d10e, an international disruptive technology conference. Prior to joining MGT, she was the campaign manager for the last six weeks of proposed CEO, John McAfee’s presidential bid.

John McAfee is an American computer programmer and businessman who ran for the 2016 presidential election as a member of the self-declared ‘Cyber Party’. He later decided to run as a Libertarian, but lost the election to New Mexico governor Gary Johnson.

John McAfee, proposed executive chairman and chief executive officer of MGT Capital, said: “I have worked extensively with Ms Madison, and she is one of the great communicators of our time. We are tremendously lucky to have her on board.”

MGT Capital Investments is currently in the process of acquiring two cyber security companies: D-Vasive, a provider of anti-spy software, and Demonsaw, a file sharing software platform provider. MGT Capital intends to change its corporate name to ‘John McAfee Global Technologies, Inc’ upon completion of the D-Vasive acquisition.
