Dear EEA Community:

I’m writing to let you know about an upcoming change in the organization. Ron Resnick will be stepping down at the end of May as EEA Executive Director. Ron has been instrumental in many of EEA’s recent accomplishments that have set EEA on a positive course for the future. We appreciate his many contributions to the EEA and his continued involvement in our community.

The EEA Board has met to determine the next steps in our search for a new Executive Director. In the meantime, Ron will continue to lead the organization in collaboration with the EEA Board of Directors and our management firm, Virtual, Inc.

Ron asked me to convey to you that it has been a privilege and honor for him to have served as Executive Director of the EEA and that he’s immensely proud of the EEA’s growth and the impact it has had on members and the industry. He has enjoyed every minute and challenge along the way, and greatly appreciates all of the support the EEA community has given him. During the past two years with support from the entire EEA team, the EEA has established itself as a highly credible industry association chartered to support the demand for enterprise-class implementations of Ethereum technology.

With the continuing commitment of the EEA to support enterprise-class implementations of Ethereum and the upcoming launch of the EEA certification program, it makes sense to recruit a highly technical expert in Ethereum technology to drive the enterprise Ethereum roadmap towards global adoption. Ron will continue in his role as Executive Director until a new replacement is selected and will support the transition to ensure a seamless leadership transition.

I’m excited about the future of the EEA and the impact we will have on the broader Ethereum community, as we execute against our 2020 initiatives and will work closely with Ron and the EEA Board to ensure a smooth transition as the organization moves forward.

With sincere appreciation,

John Whelan

Chairman of the EEA Board
