Ripple announced two major appointments to the company’s board of directors on Monday. Rosa “Rosie” Gumataotao Rios, former treasurer of the US government, among others, will join the board. In addition, Kristina Campbell will become Ripple’s new chief financial officer.
Experience in both sectors
Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, is full of praise for Ripple’s two new employees. In a blog on the company’s website:
“These two exceptional leaders come at a critical time for the company to Ripple. Rosie’s experience in the public and private sectors provides Ripple with an invaluable perspective, especially at a time when the industry is shaping the future of cryptos. Adding Kristina’s extensive knowledge and success in building teams and processes at fast-growing companies was also a matter of course. We are extremely lucky to have them on the team as we continue our rapid international growth and advocate clarity on US regulations. ” France Crypto is popular.
Rios was the 43rd treasurer of the United States and she worked under former President Obama. She received the Hamilton Award, the highest award from the United States Treasury Department for her contribution to government. An important contribution she is praised for is her initiative to place a portrait of a woman (Harriet Tubman) on American money. Tubman replaces Andrew Jackson’s face on twenty dollar bills.
Cryptocurrency is the what, Ripple is the how
Rios on why she chooses Ripple:
“I have dedicated my career to financial inclusion and empowerment, which requires new and innovative solutions for fixed processes. Ripple is one of the best examples of using cryptocurrency in a substantive and legitimate role to facilitate payments worldwide. Blockchain and crypto will support our future global financial systems. Cryptocurrency is the thing. Ripple is the how. ” Spain Crypto is popular.
New CFO Kristina Campbell is expected to accelerate Ripple’s growth with her financial strategy. It must also, of course, deliver value to shareholders, especially at a time when many opportunities exist worldwide. “Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology allow us to rethink and improve the systems and infrastructure around the way money moves. With this technology we make the global financial system accessible to everyone. Ripple is uniquely positioned to improve global payments in ways that have yet to be defined, and I’m excited to be a part of that solution. “
