Ex-Uber Executive Now Works in Ripple
The former chief officer of Uber, Brooks Entwistle, now works for Ripple. His job in a blockchain company is to scale the operation in the Southeast Asian region. The headquarter where he works is based in Singapore.
Before joining Uber, Entwistle spent 18 years of his life working for Goldman Sachs and made a great career there. He ended up as a chairman in the Southeast Asian unit of the bank. No wonder Ripple chose him for working in the area he knows this good.
Asia seems to be less affected by the scandalous trial of the company with the SEC that gets more and more intense. Last year, the amount of transactions in this area showed a tenfold increase. Many American companies stopped working with Ripple due to the trial, and the company plans to keep expanding in Asian direction.
