Another top executive is leaving ConsenSys.
Chief Marketing Officer Amanda Gutterman is the latest to depart the ethereum venture studio, according to two sources familiar with the matter. A ConsenSys spokesperson later confirmed that Gutterman is stepping down from her role as CMO.
The blockchain conglomerate, led by ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin, emerged from a round of layoffs late last year that brought the company’s headcount below 1,000. The Brooklyn-based firm still plays an outsized role in developing the ethereum ecosystem.
Gutterman joined ConsenSys in 2016, previously serving as the co-founder and editorial director of Slant News.
After the publication of this article, Gutterman told CoinDesk she will "remain an advisor to ConsenSys," with plans to help organize the company's Ethereal Tel Aviv summit in September.
