We’re thrilled to welcome Breanne Madigan to the Blockchain team as our Head of Institutional Sales and Strategy. Breanne most recently served as the Head of Institutional Wealth Services at Goldman Sachs, where she played an integral role in a division whose total assets under management reached a record $1.49 trillion in 2017.
Breanne has a remarkable history of success in leadership roles, having served as the Chief Operating Officer for the G10 Global Foreign Exchange Business, as well as Goldman Sachs’ EMEA Emerging Markets Business. In this capacity, she was responsible for a business of more than 300 individuals across a wide range of teams, as well as $2 billion in annual net revenue. She was also entrusted with managing 30 of the leading investment bank’s highest priority hedge fund clients. Her extensive background in investment strategy makes her an invaluable asset to the Blockchain team.
“Breanne has a proven track record of adding value to her teams and her clients, and as Blockchain continues to grow its institutional presence, I can think of no one better to help scale our business,” said Peter Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Blockchain.
We experienced a record year of growth in 2017 and are planning to triple our headcount in 2018. Breanne’s hire marks the third executive hire we’ve made in as many months — she joins Marco Santori, who was recently named President and Chief Legal Officer, and Peter Wilson, who is Blockchain’s new Vice President of Engineering. Alongside the entirety of the Blockchain team, Breanne will help the company better serve its growing and diverse customer base, scale operations, and support product development.
“It is an honor to join Blockchain, the leading provider for digital asset software,” said Breanne Madigan. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to create a more modern and inclusive financial system for businesses and individuals around the world, and look forward to leveraging what I have learned from the traditional financial industry in this exciting new venture.”
