Laura Mercurio: From Merrill Lynch to Deutsche Bank

Laura Mercurio has also previously worked with Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank.

  • I believe that Mercurio will be successful in leading Blockchain Australia towards crypto adoption. He has the experience and knowledge to make this happen.
  • Australia's new government is taking a proactive approach to the digital economy, with plans to map out the cryptocurrency landscape and explore the use of a central bank digital currency (CBDC). More than 20 prominent Australian institutions have backed an A$180 million (US$124.3 million) research program to benefit from the opportunities arising from asset digitization. This is a positive step forward for the country, and sets a strong precedent for other nations to follow suit.
  • I am excited to join BlackRock and help the company continue its tradition of excellence in the financial sector. I have worked at some of the world's leading banks and blockchain businesses, and I look forward to bringing my experience and knowledge to BlackRock. I am committed to helping the company grow and prosper in the years to come.
  • We are excited to have Laura join us as our new CEO. She brings with her a wealth of global experience in the blockchain space, which will be invaluable to us as we continue to grow and expand our operations in Australia.
