Dash Adds Veteran Chief Technology Officer Bob Carroll To Core Teambr>
The Dash Core team has hired Bob Carroll as its chief technology officer. Carroll officially joined at the end of May.
“I am thrilled to have Bob Carroll filling out our management team,” said CEO Ryan Taylor. “Bob is not only excited about the project and an excellent cultural fit with the team, but he is also an incredible personnel and organization developer with a strong track record of delivering against complex programs. I’m looking forward to working closely with Bob in the years ahead as we continue developing and expanding the Dash network.”
Carroll takes over the position previously occupied by Andy Freer, who has transitioned to occupy the chief architect role. Nathan Marley will be working closely with Carroll as Deputy CTO.
Carroll previously worked as the CIO of the University of Phoenix, and also worked at Informix Software, North America Systems Engineers, and Everspring over the course of his 20-year career.
“I’ve been actively involved in the dramatic growth of organizations and pioneering technologies over the past two decades, and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to join Dash at the forefront of the blockchain technology revolution,” said Carroll. “It’s exciting to be able to use my database origins with my many years of CTO experience to work with the Dash Core team, and know that the best is yet to come for the Dash network and community.”
The restructuring of the development team comes as Dash prepares for its upcoming Evolution update. The announcement of Dash Improvement Proposal (DIP) 2, 3, and 4 represents a major overhaul of Dash, which will enable new functionality.
