Kraken, a major cryptocurrency exchange , announced on Tuesday that it hired Carrie Dolan as its new Chief Financial Officer. The financial services veteran will be working to execute the company’s strategy ‘to become the crypto portal of choice for both retail and professional investors’.

She is currently a Board Member of the Hass School of Business at the University of California Berkeley, where she studied Finance and Accounting and held an MBA. Her recent working experience includes being the Chief Financial Officer of Tradeshift and Board Member and Advisor for over five years at LendUp.

Moreover, Dolan worked as CFO at Metromile, Lending Club and Charles Schwab, where she spent almost 10 years of her career. While at Lending Club, she managed its 2014 IPO, raising $1 billion in capital and making it one of the top 10 U.S.-based internet public offerings. Also, she started her professional career working in Chevron, with her latest role as Manager in Analytical Services.

“As a rapidly growing crypto platform, finance is the cornerstone of everything we do. Carrie exemplifies everything we could hope for in a CFO, and we welcome her to the Kraken team. Carrie is a big believer in the future of crypto and brings a strong track record of experience across legacy finance, fintech startups and global marketplaces. I’m very confident that Carrie’s talent, drive and record of scaling disruptive companies in regulated industries, will be instrumental in further expanding our business and laying the foundation for the next growth stage for our company,” Jesse Powell, Kraken’s CEO, commented.

Dolan's Comments

Dolan made the following statement after her appointment: “The world has recently realized that crypto is here to stay as mainstream adoption accelerates to an unprecedented pace. Kraken is at the forefront of driving mass awareness for the value and opportunity the technology brings.”

In December 2021, Kraken announced the acquisition of Staked, a leading infrastructure platform that allows secure and non-custodial cryptocurrency staking.
