The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) has just appointed its first executive director.

The open-source blockchain consortium today announced that Ron Resnick, previously president and chairman of the AirFuel Alliance, will now head the organization.

According to a press release, Julio Faura, chairman of the board at EEA, said:

"Ron's task as our first Executive Director is to build-out the organization, engage with members and foster the continued development of technical content. ... Ron has the experience and background to guide EEA through this period of rapid growth and expansion."

Resnick brings to the role more than 25 years of experience in technical, financial and business development. Prior to serving his time leading the Air Fuel Alliance, Resnick also held an executive position at Intel and led the board of the WiMax Forum – an industry association set up to develop 4G mobile broadband technology.

Talking of his new role at the EEA, Resnick said: "My focus is to drive the further development of Ethereum-based technology best practices, open standards and open-source reference architectures to evolve Ethereum into an enterprise-grade technology."

As one of his first acts for the group, Resnick will be hosting an EEA event at the upcoming World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Jan. 23, the release indicates.

More than 50 companies have joined the EEA in the past three months, including Hewlett Packard, the Australian Digital Commerce Association and Sberbank.
