Gem, a leading blockchain platform provider, recently hired David George as its Chief Commercial Officer. In this role, George will be responsible for all aspects of business development, sales and marketing at the growing Silicon Beach-based company. George brings 23 years of experience in commercial strategy for enterprise software and critical growth stage startups. He has worked in cloud services, SaaS, security, digital identity, and healthcare platforms and looks forward to applying these insights to blockchain technology.

“Gem is uniquely positioned to introduce this technology to a variety of different industries. The team is forward-thinking and visionary, but with an extreme focus on making our customers and partners successful,” says George. “During my tenure in technology I have developed global growth strategies in both start-up and Fortune 10 environments driving revenue creation, product development, policy, and marketing. My role at Gem will pull from all of these experiences to deliver our solutions across a global audience in a hyper growth environment... It’s an amazing opportunity with a great team and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

In early 2016 Gem closed an additional $7.1 million in Series A funding and has been growing rapidly. In April, they announced their first enterprise customer with Philips Blockchain Lab. David George will play a prominent role as the company continues to build momentum around their platform, GemOS.

CEO Micah Winkelspecht says, “Gem is excited to have David’s experience driving our commercial efforts. His insight and energy will be invaluable as we prepare our team and technology for critical growth.”

Gem’s next key hire will be for the Chief Operations Officer role, a position for an experienced operations executive with a co-founder mentality.

David George will make his first public appearance as Chief Commercial Officer at the Distributed:Health conference in Nashville, TN on October 3, 2016. Gem is the title sponsor of the event, a first-of-its-kind conference exploring the edge of innovation in healthcare.
