Teana is the Managing Director of Looking Glass Labs, a consultancy specialising in business and commercial strategy, policy, and regulatory and government affairs for the digital assets, blockchain, fintech, and regtech sectors.

Teana is passionate about the opportunities emerging from digital assets – as a global formation of capital, through the tokenisation of products and services and as a burgeoning asset class. She possesses 20+ years’ experience in commercial strategy, proposition development, and policy and communications, with expertise in fintech, crypto, transaction banking and payments and capital markets. She leverages her experience from both the traditional finance and digital asset industries to bridge two ecosystems with shared commercial, regulatory and reputational challenges to build a shared understanding of the risks and opportunities presented by digital assets.

Previously, Teana was the Executive Director and board member of Global Digital Finance, an organisation fostering discussion on global policies for blockchain and digital assets with policymakers, regulators and industry participants. Teana has held senior strategy, communications and marketing positions at Coinfloor, HSBC, Citi, Fiserv, and RBS.

Teana was recognised as an Innovate Finance 2018 Women in Fintech Powerlist Standout 35 and won the Blockchain Leaders category within the Women In Tech Awards 2019.
