Another One Out: Marketing Chief Officer Amanda Gutterman To Leave Consensys
- ConsenSys is seeing many of its top executives leaving recently and Amanda Gutterman, the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of the company is the latest one to go.
- According to Coindesk, which cites two inside sources, Gutterman is the next one to go away from the company.
Leaving Executive Role At ConsenSys
Soon after the original announcement, that Amanda Gutterman is leaving her role as CMO at ConsenSys, an official spokesman from the company confirmed that it was the truth: the CMO was leaving after stepping out of her role in the company.
She originally joined back in 2016 and has served in her role for around three years before this departure. Before working on the company, Gutterman was one of the co-founders of Slant News, a media outlet based in the U. S.
Gutterman affirmed that she is leaving the company as the CMO, however, she will keep a small role as an advisor. She is also ready to organize the Ethereal Tel Aviv summit of the company, which is happening in September.
At the time of this report, nobody knew who would succeed her as the new marketing lead.
Crisis In ConsenSys? Top Executives Are Leaving
Gutterman is not the first top executive to leave ConsenSys, the company originally created by Joseph Lubin, one of the Ethereum co-founders. Before her, Andrew Keys and Kavita Gupta decided to leave the Ethereum accelerator.
Keys was one of the co-founders of ConsenSys and he left in order to pursue his own goals outside of the company. Despite leaving the company, he also affirmed that he would participate as an advisor to ConsenSys.
Gupta, who was working as the head of ConsenSys Ventures, originally founded in 2017, also left but stayed on the board of directors. She is now teaching at Stanford.
Some people have wondered whether this means a crisis for ConsenSys, as it often happens when many employees decide to leave. At the moment, we lack information to speculate more on the reasons that may have led these people to distance themselves from their positions.
The Promise of ConsenSys 2.0
ConsenSys has surely suffered many changes this year on the road to what was named by Lubin as ConsenSys 2.0. One of the first moves of the company was to fire several employees. At the time, around 30% of the workforce of the company was gone.
However, the company is also showing some signs of recovery from these bad times, as Lubin promised that it would. The company has a new London office which already has over 50 employees. This week, the company also hired Lex Sokolin as the new global head of fintech. He is set to be a part of the new London office and will have an important role there.
