With over three decades of experience under his belt, Domingo is one of the most successful digital transformation executives in the Asia-Pacific region, having played multiple roles in various organizations in Asia and the US.

Domingo is now responsible for the management of product development and technology services at UBX and will spearhead the company’s platform and ecosystem development initiatives.

“Innovation is at the core of UBX’s existence. Domingo’s vast exposure to and experience in technology will certainly complement and strengthen our continuous pursuit for innovation to promote financial and social inclusion,” UBX President John Januszczak said.

Prior to his appointment as the new UBX CTO, Domingo was the Asia-Pacific group CTO of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, a high-throughput, high-performance equities trading platform. During his tenure, he has successfully built AI technology businesses and is the founder of DARC Labs, a cancer and diagnostics research center, powered by AI. With a double Master’s degree in Science in Finance and Economics at the University of Southern California and a certificate degree in AI from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computer Science Artificial Intelligence Lab to boot, Domingo is nothing short of a virtuoso in the fields of financial technology, media, telecommunications, health care, manufacturing and defense. Currently, he is also the director of the Ateneo Institute for Digital Enterprises of the Graduate School of Business.
