We are beyond thrilled to announce the appointment of former European Commissioner for Trade, Phil Hogan to our Advisory Board.

Phil Hogan brings with him a wealth of experience in international trade and relations following a highly successful political career. During his time as European Commissioner for Trade he was entrusted by President of the EU, Ursula von der Leyen, with the sensitive job of resolving the trade war between the EU and USA with President Donald Trump.

He was also responsible for negotiating a critical investment deal with China and securing landmark trade deals with Japan and the South American Mercosur bloc. Hogan has also held several senior positions in the Irish Government including Minister of State at the Department of Finance.

Hogan will provide strategic advice to Dublin-based The Proof of Trust & Assurance as it continues to roll out its ground-breaking, patented protocol, designed to change the way business is conducted and provide relief to dispute resolution centres around the world. The innovative, IBM backed protocol has the power to play a pivotal role in the post-Covid recovery by providing a technological solution which reduces friction in international collaboration and promotes global business continuity.

Phil Hogan said“Decentralised finance is becoming increasingly prominent across the world, but the lack of robust, legal protection has hindered progress within major institutions. The Proof of Trust & Assurance offers the first sustainable and scalable bridge to support the mass adoption of decentralised finance products in the real world. Companies like The Proof of Trust & Assurance are the future, and I’m very pleased to be a part of it.”

Damien O’Brien, Executive Chairman and co-founder at The Proof of Trust & Assurance, said“We’re honoured to welcome Phil to the Advisory Board. His depth of international experience will be invaluable as we continue to forge partnerships around the world. Our protocol has the power to change the way that governments and businesses operate as the global community emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re all looking forward to working with Phil, alongside our wider advisory board, to achieve those ambitions.”

This announcement follows the formation of The Proof of Trust & Assurance’s Advisory Board in May 2021, which included the appointment of Lord Hill of Oareford, who led the UK Listings Review. It marks another defining moment in the Company’s ongoing expansion as it continues to roll out its ground-breaking protocol through partnerships with governments and major corporate institutions across the globe.
