Former US Treasurer, Kristina Campbell, Joins Ripple board, As New CFO
Ripple recently announced two notable appointments. Former US Treasurer Rosa “Rosie" Gumataotao Rios is joining Ripple's board of directors, and Kristina Campbell is joining the firm as its new chief financial officer.
Ripple chief executive officer 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 was the 43rd Treasurer of the US in the Obama administration. She received the Hamilton Award, the highest honor given by the Treasury Department for her contribution to the agency.
Meanwhile, Campbell is expected to expedite Ripple’s growth by driving its financial strategy and delivering value to shareholders at a time when opportunities are expanding across the world.
Ripple Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Ripple price will jump further to reach the $1.65 resistance barrier. A break above that line will take XRP to $1.85 resistance.
