Agentic Group today announced that Ann Camarillo, the CEO of Boloro, a global mobile payments network, and former CEO of Maestro and Cirrus, has joined as a Senior Advisor to the blockchain and digital currency consortium.

Over the course of a 20 year career at MasterCard Worldwide, Camarillo held a variety of leadership positions in business development, customer management, debit and prepaid products, operations and technology in the United States and globally.

Camarillo served in Belgium as CEO of Maestro International, the largest global debit card network, and CEO of Cirrus, the largest global ATM network. As MasterCard’s Chief Debit Officer, she created Debit Centre of Excellence and managed the Global Debit Advisory Board responsible for all debit and prepaid strategy, policies, financial performance and investments. As Executive Vice President of U.S. Market Development, Ms. Camarillo was responsible for the financial contribution of all products and services and for creating and implementing next generation revenue streams.

Rik Willard, Founder of Agentic Group, commented:

“Ann brings a unique perspective and focus on consumer payments using mobile, evidenced by the explosive entry of Boloro mobile payments into emerging economies. Her mission to drive cash replacement is truly at the epicenter of what our members believe to be the future with Blockchain and Digital Currencies.”

Camarillo noted:

“I am honored to be an advisor to this visionary group focused on unleashing the potential of Blockchain, which I believe to be a true game-changer for creating transparent and trusted transactional records that not only will impact the essence of financial services offerings as we know it today, but will ultimately put the power in the hands of buyers and sellers. Blockchain may potentially disrupt the way traditional financial services have been configured.”

Headquartered in New York City, Agentic Group is an international membership-based consortium of blockchain, digital currency and related companies providing education, consulting and development services for businesses, governments and nonprofits.

Boloro is a next-generation global payments network that is designed to offer consumers the ability to securely pay for goods and services using any kind of mobile phone and account.
