Ripple Expands its Global Regulatory Bench with New Addition and Joins Blockchain Association
Craig Phillips, former Counselor to the Secretary at the US Treasury Department is the latest addition to the Ripple team. Phillips has joined Ripple’s Board of Directors and will provide “depth” to the company's “policy leadership bench.”
He recently oversaw the regulatory framework developed for the financial system under Executive Order 13772 and further efforts to enhance the cybersecurity for the financial sector through the Office of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Compliance Policy.
Phillips will provide counsel to Ripple’s leadership team and advise on strategic regulatory opportunities, announced the company.
Ripple is fast expanding its global regulatory bench that also includes International Policy Counsel Susan Friedman, a former Treasury Assistant Secretary for International Markets and Ron Hammond, former Legislative Assistant to Representative Warren Davidson who worked on the Token Taxonomy Act as the Manager of Government Relations.
“We are thrilled to announce that Ripple has expanded our global regulatory team and is the first major blockchain company with a dedicated GR office in Washington D.C.”
Another development came in the form of Ripple becoming a member of the Blockchain Association to help advance trust and innovation in blockchain and digital asset technologies. This membership is part of Ripple's plan to continue conversations with policymakers.
Also, Michelle Bond, Ripple Global Head of Government Relations, former Head of Global Regulatory Affairs and Public Policy at Bloomberg and Senior Council at SEC and US Senate Banking Committee, will sit on the Blockchain Association’s board.
To support the blockchain and crypto ecosystem, Ripple has joined the Blockchain Association that advocates for advanced trust, transparency, safety and innovation of blockchain and digital asset technology.
The company goal here is to:
“Share knowledge, identify opportunities and co-create a more transparent future in partnership with policymakers.”
