Ripple Appoints Appoints Marjan Delatinne As New Sales Director For Europe

San Francisco fintech company, Ripple, announced on Wednesday it has appointed former business director at SWIFT gpi, Marjan Delatinne, as its new sales director for Europe. The company reports that Delatinne will lead its sales efforts for financial institutions in Europe and will sell its commercial blockchain solution to banks looking to offer more competitive cross-border payment services and to join the company’s global network. Ripple shared:

Delatinne joins us from SWIFT where she worked for ten years, most recently in charge of selling their Global Payments Innovation (gpi) offering. She also led EMEA customer engagement for SWIFT gpi. Prior to SWIFT, she worked at Euroclear and the Bank of New York Mellon. With more than two decades of experience in sales leadership roles, Marjan has gained valuable insights into the financial industry and payment infrastructures globally that will be a huge asset to the team.”

Speaking about her initial interest in the company, Delatinne stated:

My previous experiences convinced me that the financial industry is in dire need of technology that facilitates faster payments. The industry is looking for modern payments solutions which are built on the latest technology, not outdated infrastructure. Ripple understands how banks function and has adapted to serve them, whereas the incumbents have lost touch with what banks and banks’ customers really want. I was also compelled by Ripple’s vision of the Internet of Value – a future in which money moves instantly, inexpensively and transparently. It is such an important initiative to move money the way information already moves, and I want to help facilitate it.”

In regards to her thoughts on payments and fintech’s future, Delatinne added:

Nobody knows for certain how the future of payments will pan out, but my hope is that Ripple’s vision for the Internet of Value becomes a reality. When we make that happen, it will have far-reaching economic and social impact on the world.
