Dusk Network is expanding the team: meet Ryan King, Senior Project Manager
By Mels Dees

Jun 02, 2022

A new hire joins our Business Development department.

The influx of new Dusk Network hires doesn’t stop at our Research & Development department, nor at our Marketing department. Outside of building the technologies foundational to the network and increasing our community reach, we’re keen to increase our outward operational reach as well. With the testnet live, the need for an increased focus on Business Development has become more apparent than ever.

Evangelism for Dusk Network, expanded partnerships, and presence at industry events are merely a few realms in which Business Development is set to improve with the latest addition to our team.

With that in mind, we’re very excited to introduce you to Ryan King, who’s set to bolster the BD team moving forward.

Meet Ryan

Having Ryan join Dusk Network was an exciting prospect from the get-go.

Originally hailing from Morecambe in the U.K., Ryan gained his Master’s Degree in International Relations from the International University of Japan. Since then, he has proven himself adept in a host of positions occupied internationally. Proficient in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean, he’s served as mentor, strategic advisor, and as a Senior Lecturer at multiple universities on the topics of Marketing Management, Entrepreneurship, and Business.

He now joins Dusk Network to help combine transparency and privacy in the finance sector.

I’m here because of privacy. It’s a fundamental human right and it has to be built into businesses on a foundational level. On my first call with [co-founder] Jelle Pol, I realized that we were aligned on this issue.

As Director of Acceleration at the blockchain business accelerator of a top-10 token project and as Senior Program Manager at China’s first startup accelerator, he honed skills spanning deal negotiation, entrepreneurship, project onboarding, as well as a wealth of experience ready for implementation at Dusk Network.

“I love entrepreneurs and their crazy ideas. They’re what make the world turn. Blockchain offers an entirely new economy and an entirely new set of opportunities for people with good ideas and I know Dusk is the place to make that happen.”

We’re excited to have Ryan on board as Senior Project Manager!
