The San Francisco-based crypto firm, Ripple has been going crazy on the partnership this past year and even now, they have just announced three new appointments to its international regulatory team and that the company will be joining the Blockchain Association.
According to a blog post, Ripple has on-boarded some new members including Craig Phillips, Michelle Bond, Ron Hammond and Susan Friedman, meaning that most of its global regulatory team is to be based in Washington DC will bond sitting on the board for the Blockchain Association.
As reported by CT:
“Phillips joined Ripple from the United States Treasury Department, where he served as Counselor to the Secretary and worked on the Executive Order 13772, a presidential executive order that establishes a series of standards designed to manage regulatory actions that impact the financial sector, as well as intends to advance economic growth. At Ripple, Phillips will advise on strategic regulatory opportunities.”
Before Bond got involved with the Blockchain Company, she served as the international chief of policy at blockchain and head of global regulatory affairs and public policy at Bloomberg. On top of this, she was also the senior counsel at both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the US Senate Banking Committee.
Whilst working as a Senior Advisor to CFTC Chairman Heath Tarbt, Susan Friedman in his previous capacity as Treasury’s Assistant Secretary for International Marketing. Whilst at Ripple though, Susan will be working as the global policy counsel. Ron Hammond will be coming on board with Ripple as the manager of government relations and given his previous experience as a Legislative Assistant to Representative Warren Davidson, this should be an interesting change.
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
