The Digital Dollar Project (“DDP”), a non-profit focused on catalyzing the public discussion around a U.S. CBDC, today announced new hires to support the strategic growth of its policy research and experimentation teams.
“DDP is growing to meet the domestic challenges of varying advances in the international development of central bank digital currencies and these new executives have strategically worked in the middle of central banking, technology, and global money development for decades,” said Jennifer Lassiter, Executive Director of the Digital Dollar Project. We are actively engaging with private sector leaders, academia, and policymakers and gearing up for additional experimentation support. This team brings the passion and talent needed to aid leaders as CBDC research continues in the U.S. and develops abroad.”
Michael Greco joins as Policy Research Director. Michael’s insights and in-depth knowledge of technology and global financial services will be instrumental in the DDP’s development. Prior to this role, he was the Government Relations Policy Manager for a global enterprise software company and previously worked in policy management for a leading global professional services company.
Shaun Ferrari joins as Industry Engagement and Experimentation Director. With high levels of expertise in strategic direction and policy formulation, Shaun’s tenure stretches from holding the role of Vice President at a central bank conference and relationship management agency to spending 16 years overseeing bank operations and currency issuance strategies for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
