Slync, an enterprise blockchain platform for the shipping, logistics and supply chain industries, has added Silicon Valley veteran Jim Atwell to its board of directors.
Atwell, formally the managing partner for the technology and emerging growth practice at Deloitte & Touche LLP, brings deep experience from numerous high-growth companies, including Cisco Systems, eBay, Softbank Group, Sony and Toshiba. Atwell is known in Silicon Valley for providing audit and financial consulting services to rapidly growing technology companies. His areas of expertise include mergers and acquisitions, carve-out transactions, initial public offerings (IPOs), secondary public offerings, and strategy development and execution.
Atwell currently serves as a partner at Deloitte & Touche, leading a team that helps growing companies go public, primarily in the technology and life sciences industries.
“Over my 30 years in this business, I’ve consulted many startups that have radically transformed the way people do business and live their lives,” said Atwell. “Blockchain has the potential to be bigger and more disruptive than any of those transformations. Slync’s vision for applying blockchain across the supply chain market promises to solve many industry problems that were previously deemed impossible.”
An emerging startup out of Silicon Valley, Slync’s enterprise blockchain solution enables all partners in a supply chain to validate and manage transactions in a less expensive and more efficient way.
“We are experiencing significant demand for our solution and expect to grow rapidly as more organizations deploy blockchain across their supply chains,” said Chris Kirchner, CEO and Co-Founder of Slync. “Jim’s experience, relationships and expertise across venture capital, IPOs and disruptive technologies will be invaluable as we scale our business.”
