Enterprise blockchain software firm, R3, has appointed Cathy Minter as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).
Her responsibilities will include growing the user-base for the venture’s Corda Enterprise offering, the deployment of Corda tailored for enterprise use, and promoting its expanded use across a range of use cases.
Minter was previously Head of Americas Sales at enterprise software firm Docker. She has also held senior leadership positions at SAP and Oracle, as well as SpaceTime Insight, a visual analytics firm acquired by Nokia in 2018, and Cordys, a cloud-based software company.
R3 has built up a network of more than 300 financial services firms, technology companies, central banks, regulators and trade associations, who are building applications on its Corda open source and Corda Enterprise platforms.
Minter comments: “Throughout my career, I’ve worked on some of the most impactful enterprise technologies, like cloud computing and the SaaS revolution. From talking with clients and contacts, it became really clear to me that blockchain is gathering steam across a very diverse range of industries.”
“The speed of engagement and enthusiasm for enterprise blockchain is something I’ve not seen before. When the opportunity to work with R3, the leader in enterprise blockchain technology, presented itself, it felt like a very natural fit for me.”
David E. Rutter, CEO of R3, says: “Our Corda platform is now being utilised for everything from supply chain transparency to managing property sales. With this robust growth of Corda adoption into a diverse range of different markets and industries, we needed someone with exceptional skills in enterprise technology sales and a deep contact book. Cathy fit the bill perfectly for this role.”
