Doug McCalmont

Founder, BlocAlt Consulting LLC

In 2013, Doug was exposed to blockchain technology for the first time through his analysis of cryptographic currencies for a major asset management firm. From 2015-2016, he led an initiative within Latin America introducing identity verification methods utilizing blockchain technology. In April 2017, after 19 years of full-time employment within the “traditional” financial services community, he established a blockchain technology consulting firm assisting the portion of the nonprofit community that maintained operations in the developing world. As this area continues its impressive growth, Doug believes that this technology will have a profound impact on the way anti-money laundering operations, economic sanctions compliance, supply chain management and know-your-customer conventions are applied and maintained. In September 2018, he joined BAE Systems Applied Intelligence as a Senior Solutions Consultant (AML) and Blockchain Subject Matter Expert.
