Ripple welcomes former treasurer of the United States to its board of directors; names kristina campbell as new CFORipple, an enterprise blockchain solutions for global payments, has announced two new appointments to its leadership team. Rosa “Rosie” Gumataotao Rios, 43rd Treasurer of the United States, joins the Ripple Board of Directors and Kristina Campbell joins as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

“These two exceptional leaders join Ripple at a pivotal time for the company. Rosie’s experience in the public and private sectors provides an invaluable perspective to Ripple, especially during this time as the industry works to define crypto’s future. As well, adding Kristina’s extensive knowledge and success building teams and processes at rapidly accelerating businesses was a no-brainer. We are extremely fortunate to have them on the team as we continue our rapid international growth and to champion for regulatory clarity in the U.S.,” said Brad Garlinghouse, CEO, Ripple.

Rios brings 3 decades of unparalleled experience and expertise in public policy and investment management to the firm. Her career has focused on economic development, urban revitalization and real estate finance. As a Treasurer of the U.S., she oversaw all currency and coin production activities with almost 4,000 employees and an annual budget of $5 bn and initiated the efforts to place a portrait of a woman on U.S. currency. She also received the Hamilton Award – the U.S. Treasury’s highest honor.

“I’ve dedicated my career to financial inclusion and empowerment, which requires bringing new and innovative solutions to staid processes. Ripple is one of the best examples of how to use cryptocurrency in a substantive and legitimate role to facilitate payments globally. Blockchain and digital assets will underpin our future global financial systems. Cryptocurrency is the what. Ripple is the how,” said Rios.

Campbell will drive Ripple’s financial strategy, bolster growth and deliver value to shareholders as business momentum continues to grow globally. Her strategic vision, combined with a focus on building fantastic teams and operational excellence, has resulted in significant successes for the businesses she’s worked with throughout her career. Previously, she was CFO at PayNearMe, where both the business and team grew substantially under her leadership. Prior to Ripple, she held several roles at GreenDot, a now $2.5bn public fintech company, including GM of GoBank.

“Digital asset technology allows us to rethink and improve the systems and infrastructure around how money moves. With this technology, we will make the global financial system accessible to all. 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,” said Campbell.

Founded in 2012, San Francisco based Ripple provides a frictionless experience to send money globally using the power of blockchain technology. Its global network (RippleNet) currently operates in over 45 countries across six continents.
