The ICON Foundation recently reached out to its community, detailing all the efforts it has taken to include community feedback and address user concerns. It also talked about the ways in which it is improving communication at the organization. The Foundation also talked about its new hire Ricky Dodds and a new portal designed to work on community concerns in the future.
The Foundation hired Ricky Dodds as Head of Institutional Markets and Contributor Relations. Dodds will be working to connect with the global audience of the foundation and find new markets for ICON. His experience in investment banking and equity research and his interest in creating open financial systems will be helpful for the organization in achieving their goals.
Dodds' most recent role was as a Vice President in Equity Research at Deutsche Bank where he worked extensively with investment professionals, giving them insights and recommendations into the industry and company trends. He also worked with investor relation teams to better company perception and presentation to investor communities.
For his new role, Dodds said that ICON is one of the few projects that have actual enterprise relationships. He noted:
"I know how hard it is to be vetted by these types of companies, particularly as a 'start-up.' The barrier to entry is quite high. These types of relationships will allow ICON to prove out the value of the project with real-world use and move closer to the goal of hyper-connecting the world and I'm very excited to be a part of the journey."
ICON also noted that many community members do not voice their opinions because of the threatening language and profanities used by others. Comments and posts that promote such hostility will be cleaned from the official and unofficial social media channels to help in building a " healthier community." The Foundation will be working with the admins to manage these issues.
They are also designing an FAQ portal for the community to handle the most important community questions in a timely manner. The portal will work as a curated AMA for the community and will be released in the upcoming weeks.
