We’re excited to announce that Macrina Kgil has joined Blockchain as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Macrina’s background in building growth, IPO ready, and public company finance functions will be instrumental as we continue to serve our tens of millions of retail and institutional customers.

“Macrina has helped restructure liability, acquire and dispose of assets and take companies public. As our business expands, we can’t imagine a more perfect person than Macrina to help us build finance and risk operations of the highest order,” said Peter Smith, Blockchain’s CEO.

Macrina is a proven finance leader and her expertise will be key as we establish a robust, industry leading finance and risk function at Blockchain.

Prior to joining Blockchain, Macrina successfully took Springleaf Holdings (currently known as OneMain Holdings) public as CFO. She then leveraged her experience as a public company CFO to build out the finance team and establish processes to support 100+ entities as at GPB Capital Holdings, a $1.5B fund. She started her career at PwC as an auditor and capital market transaction advisor, where she advised Fortress, the first alternative asset management firm to go public.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Blockchain team at a time of unprecedented growth. The company has been on the forefront of innovation since its inception and I look forward to leveraging my experience to accelerate our mission to build a better future for billions across the globe,” said Macrina.
