In his statement, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said:
“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.”
Rios brings 30 years of unparalleled experience and expertise in public policy and investment management to Ripple. Her career has focused on economic development, urban revitalization, and real estate finance. As the 43rd Treasurer of the United States, she oversaw all currency and coin production activities with almost 4,000 employees and an annual budget of $5 billion. She also initiated the efforts to place a portrait of a woman on U.S. currency and received the Hamilton Award – the U.S. Treasury’s highest honor.
Rios will replace SBI Holdings CEO Yoshitaka Kitao, who quietly left the board in March.
On top of that, Ripple has hired fintech doctor Kristina Campbell, who has taken on the role of finance director of the company. She will be responsible for promoting the company’s growth on a global scale. Prior to joining Ripple, Campbell had a similar role at the payments and invoicing platform PayNearMe.
“Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology allow 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.”
