Vice President of Community Architecture, Hyperledger

@Silona

Silona Bonewald is vice president of community architecture at Hyperledger, where she’s responsible for facilitating the creation of the community metapatterns and processes that a global organization like Hyperledger requires. Silona has been involved in open source communities for over 14 years and has helped four companies transition from proprietary to open source. Most recently, she led the InnerSource efforts at PayPal, helping bottleneck teams remove years of backlog and promote collaboration across BUs. She continues to work on the creation of the InnerSource community with a strong focus on business integrations. She hopes to bring that knowledge into her work at Hyperledger.
