Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) yesterday, January 17, appointed the first executive director.
The blocking consortium said that Ron Resnick, who was formerly president and chairman of the AirFuel alliance, will now lead this organization.
In a press release, it is reported that EEA Chairman Julio Faura (Julia Faura) noted:
“Ron’s task as our first executive director is to create an organization, interact with members and contribute to the further development of technical content … Ron has the expertise and knowledge to manage the EEA during this period of rapid growth and expansion.”
Resnick brings to the company more than 25 years of experience in technical, financial and business development.
Before he headed the Air Fuel Alliance, Resnick held a senior position at Intel and headed the board of the WiMax forum, an industry association set up to develop 4G mobile broadband technologies.
Speaking about his new position in the EEA, Resnick said:
“My goal is to further improve the advanced technologies based on the technology of the Etherium, open standards and reference architectures with open source code, to convert the Etherium into enterprise-class technology.”
One of his first steps in the role of executive director of the consortium will be the holding of an event within the framework of the EEA at the upcoming World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which will be held on January 23, according to a press release.
Over the past three months, more than 50 companies have joined the EEA, including Hewlett Packard, the Australian Digital Commerce Association and Sberbank.
