Ripple hires former Facebook Exec

Ripple has recently employed Kahina Van Dyke as the new senior vice president of business and corporate development.

At the new position Van Dyke will be responsible for providing Ripple with strategic partnerships for international financial services, focusing on the development of “a new global technology solution for international payments.”

Van Dyke has joined Ripple to “[eliminate] the friction in cross-border payments” by “establishing partnerships and applying technology to change an industry,” she said in the press release.

Van Dyke stressed the necessity to provide companies, as well as individuals, with a way of transacting “small and large amounts of money faster and at lower cost,” stating that the system should be “more nimble and transparent” than the one developed for large corporate transactions “decades past.”

With more than 20 years of experience in banking and fintech, Van Dyke has held prominent positions at Mastercard and Facebook.
