Gabriella Kusz (Georgetown MPP ’07) serves as CEO of the Global Digital Asset and Cryptocurrency Association, a global voluntary self-regulatory association for the industry. Prior to this role, she served as the Principal for Strategic Initiatives at the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) where, in addition to other areas, she supported the profession’s leadership and innovation in the digital era. Her background has largely included working in international financial sector and economic growth including working with the World Bank Group Governance Global Practice where she was responsible for leading the Corporate Governance and Financial Reporting (CGFR) workstream for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and advancing the dual goals of the World Bank: poverty reduction and shared prosperity.
Gabriella decided to run for the McCourt School of Public Policy Alumni Board given her heavy mentorship of young policy professionals – in particular under-represented groups in technology / crypto policy. Gabriella’s favorite memory at McCourt (GPPI) was celebrating all the different cultures and perspectives in the international policy and development track. One fun fact about Gabriella is that she has traveled to over 50 countries.
