Kraken appoints Carrie Dolan as CFO
Kraken, one of the world’s largest digital asset platforms, has bolstered its executive leadership team with the addition of Carrie Dolan, a recognized financial services veteran in high-growth consumer fintechs and Fortune 500 companies.
As the newly appointed CFO of Kraken, Carrie Dolan will play a key role in the execution of Kraken’s strategy to become the crypto portal of choice for both retail and professional investors.
Ms Dolan joins Kraken from Tradeshift, a digital payments and trade finance platform, where she successfully helped the company grow and scale its business. Prior to Tradeshift, she held key leadership roles at Lending Club, Metromile, Charles Schwab, and Chevron. While at Lending Club, she managed its 2014 IPO, raising $1 billion in capital and making it one of the top 10 U.S.-based internet public offerings.
Earlier in her career, she was treasurer for Charles Schwab and CFO for the Schwab Bank, which she helped launch. To complement her professional success, Carrie Dolan has been recognized by a number of industry groups for her commitment to her profession, service to her community and support for the advancement of women.
“The world has recently realized that crypto is here to stay as mainstream adoption accelerates to an unprecedented pace. Kraken is at the forefront of driving mass awareness for the value and opportunity the technology brings,” Carrie Dolan said.
“I’m excited to join this incredible company at a pivotal time and work with the rest of the team to continue delivering on Kraken’s mission to drive mainstream adoption by making sure crypto is understood, easily accessible and trusted.”
The addition of Carrie to its executive team is the latest in a series of strategic hires at Kraken, which includes Pranesh Anthapur as Chief People Officer and Mike Davidson as Vice President of Design, who previously worked at Uber and Twitter respectively.
