CHARLESTOWN, St. Kitts and Nevis, July 14, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Modern Finance Chain (MF Chain), a public smart contract platform with merchant payment integration and multi-blockchain support, announced today that, effective immediately, former Ripple VP Brian Rankin is taking the role of a VP of Banking Integrations in the capacity of a Senior Advisor.
Brian Rankin, technology operations and client services specialist in blockchain and distributed ledgers and a former VP of Clients Services at Ripple (XRP), led the original Ripple 21-person international team that includes project management, business architecture, integration engineering, and customer success. He built Ripple's professional services team from the ground up, leading enterprise delivery of blockchain solutions to Tier-1/2/3 multinational banks across NAM, EMEA, and APAC.
Rankin was also a Head of the Global Payments Steering Group (GPSG), a consortium composed of Tier-1 Multinational banks focused on redefining an international cross-border payments network as an alternative to the SWIFT payments network. The group, under his leadership, leveraged blockchain technologies to reduce correspondent banking relationships and allow near-real-time cryptographically validated settlements.
As the VP in Ripple, Rankin established delivery best practices and built a customer-oriented PMO, created SOW and MSA templates based on blockchain LOE, and best practices for technical, legal, compliance, infosec, and functional standard requirements in the financial services sector. He also partnered with Sales and Business Development Divisions to implement deals with strategic FinTech partners including Accenture, CGI, and Deloitte.
"MF Chain will greatly benefit from Rankin's extended experience in integration of blockchain solutions in FinTech industry," says Craig Neil, MF Chain CEO, and adds that "Brian's key qualifications and expertise in implementations of distributed ledgers in traditional FinTech operations will further ensure timely and effective integration of a wide array of MF Chain's financial products."
