Digital Asset is a leading software vendor for distributed ledger technology (DLT) that solves real-world business challenges. The company combines deep industry expertise with scalable technology, including a distributed ledger platform and intuitive smart contract language, called DAML.
Digital Asset enables financial institutions and organizations across a variety of industries to use DLT to bring efficient, modern and scalable systems into production.
Masters said: “Digital Asset has evolved from an ambitious idea to a truly global software engineering firm. We are fortunate to have a deep bench of accomplished executives on the management team and Board, including AG, who have the requisite experience to take the company to the next level. Having come to know and trust AG as an advisor and Board member, I am convinced that he brings what’s needed to guide the company through its next phase.”
Gangadhar, known as AG, joined Digital Asset’s Board of Directors in April and has since been actively involved in the company’s engineering and product strategy.
AG brings significant experience building foundational technology solutions at organizations that include Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Cruise (GM) and Uber. , AG’s engineering background will help the company scale its technology and global operations to meet the growing demand for DLT solutions across financial services, healthcare, supply chain, and other verticals.
He said: “Blythe has built an impressive foundation with incredible progress to date, helping the
company emerges as an industry leader. I’m honored to lead Digital Asset and work alongside the talented management team during this transition until a new CEO is appointed, at which point I will focus on my responsibilities to lead the Board.”
