Coincover, the blockchain protection company, announces the appointment of its new Chief Commercial Officer, Ridhima Durham, who joins at a critical time following its recent successful funding round in January and rebrand in July.
Ridhima joins Coincover from Salary Finance where she “spent four years as Chief Commercial Officer.” During her tenure Salary Finance “achieved 100% YoY growth for four consecutive years.”
At Coincover, she will aim to “apply her extensive leadership skills, commercial and strategic acumen and her knowledge of start-up innovation to oversee Coincover’s growth. She will head up several teams, including sales, partnerships, marketing, communications, and lobbying.”
An Oxford University graduate, Ridhima started her career “at Goldman Sachs. Since then, she has worked across numerous roles for financial institutions, such as Schroders, before moving into fintech in 2012 when she became Head of Strategy and New Ventures at Wonga.”
“I’m excited to join Coincover at what feels like the perfect time. They have a fascinating proposition and there’s a clear gap in the market for greater institutional-grade protections.”
David Janczewski, CEO and co-founder at Coincover, said:
“Ridhima brings the exact expertise that we need at this stage of growth, as a highly experienced commercial leader she brings the perfect balance of knowledge across start-up innovation and traditional finance that will drive Coincover to new heights.”
As noted in the update, blockchain technology is “changing everything.”
However, it brings its own set of “unique risks.”
Coincover exists to ensure everyone “is protected, enabling them to innovate freely, without constraints.”
Coincover provides a complete blockchain protection solution, “addressing the most significant barrier to mainstream adoption: trust. Our protection solutions ensure that access and assets are never lost.”
Founded in 2018, Coincover is backed by fintech and blockchain investors.
They claim to “help over 350 of the biggest names in blockchain, including Fireblocks, BitGo, and Ledger, protect themselves and their customers from theft, hacking, and human error,”
