Ripple Makes Two New Additions to its Government Relations Team
- Ron Hammond who assisted in crafting Token Taxonomy Act joins as the new Manager of Government Relations
- Susan Friedman from the US Treasury joins the same team
- New hires on board as Ripple engages with policymakers worldwide
Ripple has welcomed two new additions to its team. Ron Hammond is one of the names that is joining Ripple as the new Manager of Government Relations.
Interestingly, Hammond is quite familiar with the regulatory difficulties facing crypto startups in the US as he is known for his Token Taxonomy Act that seeks to clarify the status of different cryptocurrencies and exclude them from being classified as a security.
“Ron brings a wealth of legislative and policy experience to Ripple. Excited to have him on board as we continue to work closely with lawmakers, regulators, and partners worldwide!,” announced Michelle Bond, Global Head of Government Relations at Ripple.
Hammond has also worked with crypto-friendly US lawmaker Warren Davidson.
“Thrilled to bring all of my legislative experience, including crafting the Token Taxonomy Act, to the team,” shared Hammond on Twitter.
Another addition has been Susan Friedman from the US Treasury who is joining the Ripple’s Government Relations team as the company engages with regulators globally. “Exciting times at Ripple,” tweeted Bond about Friedman joining the team who
“brings incredible legal and policy experience. Great to have her on board as we engage with policymakers worldwide.”
New hires bring in legislative and policy experience.
