CARDIFF, UK, WEDNESDAY 1 FEBRUARY 2023 – Finboot is announcing today it has appointed former Evonik Chief Information Officer and Head of Global IT Services, Dr Bettina Uhlich, as a Non-Executive Director on the board.


Evonik is a listed German chemical manufacturing company headquartered in Essen.  It is one of the largest chemical companies in the world.  Dr Uhlich enjoyed a 34-year career at Evonik – working in numerous roles across the business. 


Her vast and senior-level experience encompasses an understanding of complex processes involved in chemical manufacture, including procurement, supply chains, distribution and supporting IT systems. This 360-degree view of complex chain processes means she was one of the early adopters when it comes to realising the value of blockchain, and how it can aid automation and efficiency.


Nish Kotecha, Chairman and Co-Founder of Finboot, says: 


“We are really thrilled Dr Uhlich is joining the Finboot board.  She is a blockchain for business pioneer who understands the importance of making technology easy to use, enabling hesitant enterprises to adopt it.  Dr Uhlich understands the trust blockchain instils in the supply chain, which is a crucial unique selling point and that will maximise efficiency and growth.  She literally wrote a book on it.  I look forward to working more closely with her.”


Dr Uhlich says:


“I believe in IT with a purpose.  Blockchain’s purpose is clear to entrench trust and truth so data can be shared between different parts of value chains – including different companies.


“Finboot’s Blockchain platform, MARCO, is a great solution.  The key thing for me is that because it is a no code / low code application it is easy to use; and you do not need to have lots of training or be a coder to operate it.  


“This is crucial for enterprises who do not have big IT departments or big pockets.  SMEs are the key ‘engine rooms’ in modern industrialised economies, and Germany is no different.  For this reason I see huge growth potential for Finboot in Germany and throughout Europe.


“I am looking forward to connecting Finboot with the blockchain community in Germany and beyond along with the Finboot team to achieve our goals.”
