AMA with Holli Bohren
Welcome to the fourteenth post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit is an eight-month-long event that features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams. The goal of the series is twofold: to give fans of the project an opportunity to interact directly with team members, and to give team members—especially those who operate largely behind the scenes—a chance to share their insights and offer the community a window into their work.
The most recent AMA took place on March 27th and featured Holli Bohren, Brave’s Chief Financial Officer. Holli fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, like what a “successful exit” looks like in her view, whether Brave employees’ salaries are paid in BAT, and how the company plans to use the BAT generated as revenue from its advertising platform. In between demonstrations of her prowess as a financier, Holli shared tidbits about her personal life: she is a self-professed reading addict who enjoys listening to whatever music her teenage kids are into at the moment.
Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, April 10th, and will feature Jan Piotrowski, Brad Flora, and Des Martin from the Business Development team.
