Founder, CEO of Radpay
Dana Love is CEO and a founder of Radpay, and the cryptoeconomic advisor to a number of financial and real estate blockchain ICOs. First involved in blockchain work in 2011, Love holds a PhD in economics (The University of Glasgow, highest honors), an MBA in marketing (Harvard Business School, Baker Scholar), and a BS in physics (University of Richmond, Phi Beta Kappa). Notable successes include BrightDawn (4 consecutive years of 125% annual growth), founding VoIP pioneer Metacloud Communications (sold to Intelogistics), Astyra (led during three consecutive years of top 5 growth in the Virginia market), turnaround success at ADC’s Enhanced Services Division (increased revenue to $101 million before sale to SS8 Networks) and Hatch (reversed three years of declining sales). Love started coding as a youth in MORTRAN and ALGOL68G, and has co-founded five businesses with four successful exits, including Cisco Capital-backed Metacloud and Warburg Pincus-backed Radnet, and have led divisions of public companies including GTE (now Verizon), Prosodie Interactive (now CapGemini) and ADC. Significant experience in both public sector and enterprise markets for US and international businesses and notable experience leading sales teams and solutions teams in systems integration, network outsourcing, virtualization, and infrastructure management. Consistently recognized for spearheading innovation and growth, and mentoring high performing teams. Love’s research is in public policy. His dissertation Essays on Liquidity in Financial Markets suggested a policy role for lenient central-bank lending during financial disruptions, and his more recent research studies the impact of blockchain and big data on emerging economies. Some past technology efforts include building the first cloud-based ERP system in the mid-90s, development of the first carrier-grade VoIP and unified communications platforms in the world at GTE, now Verizon, and early work in big data systems, as an Oracle partner. Love’s work in big data, machine learning, blockchain, and VoIP has been written about in Wired, Oracle’s Profit Magazine, the Financial Times, and Telephony Magazine. He has won a variety of awards, including (twice) the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, (twice) inclusion on the INC500 or (six times) INC5000, Top Forty Under 40 (where he was called “a mathematical genius”), the Financial Times Global Telecoms Award for Internet Technology, and the ADC Engineering Excellence Award.
