The Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) has named FinTech entrepreneur Sandra Ro as its new chief executive officer. She will lead the group’s efforts to educate regulators and business leaders about the vast potential of blockchain technology.

“Sandra is one of the most respected voices in the blockchain community and is uniquely positioned to help us build on existing momentum,” said Tomicah Tillemann, chairman of the GBBC’s board of directors. “She will provide the strong leadership we need to keep pace with the massive surge of interest around blockchain and the GBBC.”

Ro is managing partner, co-founder and chief operating officer of UWINCorp Ltd: Unleashing Wealth in Nations. She is also the founder and managing director of Vector Crypto Capital LLC.

A FinTech entrepreneur who speaks frequently about blockchain and cryptocurrency issues around the world, Ro’s work has focused primarily on delivering financial access and products to people and communities using technology that enables next-generation market infrastructure and financial products.

“I am truly honored to take on this important role at such a crucial time in the global advancement of blockchain technology,” said Ro. “This technology is already creating solutions that enable businesses and governments to perform better for people, and the GBBC is playing an increasingly impactful role in that process.”

Ro will succeed Jamie Smith, who stepped down as CEO this month. Smith is expected to be named to the GBBC board at the next convening of the General Assembly.
