Welcome Iulia Mihailescu, CMO!

Today, we extend a warm welcome to our new teammate and Chief Marketing Officer, Iulia Mihailescu!

An Invaluable Addition

Aged 38, California-based Iulia is a veteran marketer with many years of fintech experience working with PayPal and Google. And as a marketer who played a pivotal role in the integration of PayPal into the crypto space, Iulia will bring her expertise to the C-suite behind the world’s most advanced zero-knowledge blockchain, Partisia.

Working at Google EMEA, she was Product Marketing Manager and Business Developer and was responsible for growing on-line marketing revenues.

Then for another ten years, Iulia served in various marketing roles at PayPal, most recently as Head of Crypto Go-to-Market. There, she was responsible for the competitive positioning and launch strategy in the digital asset market. However, she was able to do this by focusing on trust and accessibility as the core value propositions, thereby encouraging mass adoption.

In all, Iulia possesses a high level of expertise in spearheading disruptive innovation, advocating for the digital economy, and leading high-performing teams for world-leading fintechs. And will be joining the foundation’s senior leadership team, reporting directly to Brian Gallagher, Partisia Blockchain Co-Founder and Board Member.

Iulia also has a sparkling educational background. She holds a Masters in Marketing Science from EDHEC Business School in France and two Bachelor of Science degrees — one in Political Science and the other in International Business.


“We are delighted to welcome Iulia to the team,” says Kurt Nielsen, Partisia’s CEO. “Her track record in spurring growth for global internet-based organizations means that she’s well-placed to lead our go-to-market at this exciting stage of our journey. We are impressed by Iulia’s background and proven track record in the digital economy, especially in driving mainstream adoption of cryptocurrency, and we know she will be an integral part of shaping the future of Partisia Blockchain.”

“The new decentralized internet requires leaders who propel change,” says Brian Gallagher, Co-Founder of Partisia Blockchain. “Iulia has an impressive track record of driving high-growth and business expansion, in particular having launched crypto for the most trusted fintech brand in the world. Her expertise in inclusive marketing and brand building will help propel us to the next level of growth and market relevance, and I’m very excited about the tremendous impact she will have as a key member of our executive team.”

“Partisia Blockchain is an enabler of better economic systems,” says Iulia Mihailescu, CMO of Partisia Blockchain. “The team is defining a new category in the blockchain space — bringing true privacy to the internet — and creating solutions that tackle the most significant problems faced by blockchains today: scalability, security and sustainability. They are backed by some of the world’s largest VCs and digital asset exchanges, and the founding team is one of the most impressive I’ve seen so far.”

We look forward to continuing to build the incredible team here at Partisia Blockchain.
