Ruffa Joins Crypto.com to Drive Expansion to Robust LATAM Market
Ruffa, who helped banks and merchants adopt disruptive solutions to onboard new consumers, joins at an auspicious time as Crypto.com has expanded its portfolio and entered new markets. This appointment coincides with Crypto’s.com’s recently released Portuguese and Spanish versions of its App and Exchange. Not forgetting its recent rapid growth now reaching more than five million users. Notably, the LATAM region is a crucial market that has limited access to financial services in many countries.
Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com said: “Filomena’s extensive experience working in the Latin American payments market is a valuable asset to the Crypto.com team as we continue our expansion into this important region. With over half a billion people and a robust crypto ecosystem, LATAM has huge potential.”
Ruffa said: “I am honored and thrilled to lead the Crypto.com expansion into Latin America. Crypto.com is on a mission to accelerate the world’s transition to cryptocurrency and I can’t wait to start building Crypto.com strategic presence in the Latin America Region and work alongside the team and our partners.”
