StrongBlock, a startup bringing innovative Enterprise-grade blockchain solutions to global industry, has appointed three prominent enterprise veterans to their newly formed Advisory Board.
Cayman Islands – December 20, 2018 —
The rapid growth of blockchain is driving enterprises to explore how the technology can be leveraged to increase competitiveness. Blockchain allows a radical shift in the way enterprises approach data and business models. By leveraging cryptographic proofs and multiple copies of verified data sets distributed globally, firms who would otherwise not be able to trust each other can nevertheless rely on mutually managed data sets free of fear of data corruption or manipulation. StrongBlock is developing the resources, solutions, and techniques enterprises need to navigate this new standard.
StrongBlock is preparing for major blockchain technology announcements in January 2019 by welcoming Jeff Huber, George Kadifa, and Keith Ferrazzi to their newly formed Advisory Board. These industry veterans hold extraordinary reputations in the enterprise space and are known for their work at tech giants including HP, Google, Oracle and Deloitte.
Jeff Huber is founding CEO and Chairman of Grail, whose mission is to detect cancer early when it can be cured. Prior to GRAIL, Mr. Huber was Senior Vice President at Google, leading the development of Google Apps, Google Ads, Google Maps and Google X.
George Kadifa is Managing Director of Sumeru Equity Partners and former Executive Vice President of Hewlett Packard. Mr. Kadifa is also a member of the board of various companies including Perfecto, Velocity Technology Solutions, FADEL, MSDL, and Snow Software. Mr. Kadifa is a Trustee of The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Keith Ferrazzi is Chairman and Founder of Ferrazzi Greenlight, a research institute founded on the pillars of behavioral science and its effects on business. Mr. Ferrazzi is also the author of the NY Times Bestseller, “Never Eat Alone”. Mr. Ferrazzi was formerly the Chief Marketing Officer at Deloitte, and is also known for his work with World Bank, General Motors, Verizon and XPRIZE.
“StrongBlock’s Advisors individually and collectively bring deep industry knowledge and experience to our mission of being the premiere Enterprise Blockchain technology provider,” says David Moss, Founder and CEO of StrongBlock.
StrongBlock believes the vast potential of blockchain has yet to be revealed, and has tremendous potential for the global transformation of business, government, and society. The firm was formed by blockchain visionaries David Moss, Thomas Cox, Corey Lederer, and Brian Abramson, who as technology executives at Block.one LLC led the development of EOS. StrongBlock currently views EOS MIT Open Source software as the only blockchain protocol capable of handling the performance and governance requirements of today’s global businesses.
