About Me

 

Hello! I am Olga V. Mack, and I love the intersection of blockchain strategy, leadership, and innovation. I am a strategic, diligent decision-maker with fifteen years of experience advising and serving innovative companies of all sizes. I am skilled at navigating through change, setting goals, mitigating risks, and charting the course for long-term success.

I am passionate about blockchain industry. I serve as Vice President of Strategy at Quantstamp, the first decentralized security auditing blockchain platform. I advocated and testified for AB 2658 and SB 838 which define blockchain and form a working group in California to better understand blockchain. I am a co-authoring a book (coming winter 2019) about the fundamentals of blockchain and smart contracts security. I founded and lead the Smart Contracts Security Alliance to educate enterprises about the best smart contracts and blockchain. I spoke at TEDxSanFrancisco about the impact potential of blockchain and smart contracts and will speak at SXSW about blockchain business models in 2019.

I also take pride in being an outspoken advocate for professional women. I am a founder of the Women Serve on Boards movement, which advocates for women to serve on the corporate boards of Fortune 500 companies. I successfully persuaded over a dozen Fortune 500 companies to recruit their first woman director. I advocated, testified, and mobilized for the passage of California SB 826 which requires public companies to recruit women directors. I also authored All [A]Board: Your Journey to Becoming a Corporate Director, to help demystify board service for all. I have trained numerous professionals at companies including KPMG and Dropbox as well as numerous conferences such as Watermark and How Women Lead.

I also enjoy helping startups thrive and grow. I am currently serving as an advisory board director at Phylos, SaGo.ai, ChannelMeter, Contract Wrangler, and Lovelyloot. I also serve on numerous government, professional, and nonprofit boards, including the California Law Revision Commission and a Leadership Board of the San Francisco Bay Area Association of Corporate Counsel.
