Chris Cracchiolo, VP of Global Membership Rewards and Loyalty Benefits at American Express, is taking on the role of Strategic Advisor to qiibee, the Swiss loyalty token protocol which helps brands run their loyalty programmes on the blockchain.
He comments: “qiibee is at the forefront of the loyalty industry revolution, bridging the gap between the blockchain industry and the loyalty sector. By enabling brands to operate their own loyalty programmes, it is making the loyalty landscape more efficient and user-friendly, enhancing the experience not just for brands, but for customers as well. The team have built something special and I am privileged to be a part of their growth.”
