Boiron promoted to CEO at Polygon Labs; Wyatt to leave presidency.

Polygon Labs, the company behind the Polygon blockchain, has promoted its chief legal officer, Marc Boiron, to CEO. President Ryan Wyatt will step down at the end of July and serve in an advisory role.

According to a press release shared with the blockchain community, Boiron’s appointment signifies the company’s commitment to supporting and expanding the global Polygon community, which includes developers, builders, and users.

Rebecca Rettig, who joined Polygon in February as chief policy officer, will now take over Boiron’s previous role as chief legal officer.

Co-founder Sandeep Nailwal will assume the position of executive chairman.

These management changes are happening as Polygon undergoes a rebranding process and moves into the next phase of its corporate development, known as “Polygon 2.0.”

As part of this campaign, Polygon has made several announcements. Recently, they called for a “coordination layer” that will bring together all of the Polygon chains. In June, Polygon shared a proposal to upgrade its legacy “PoS” chain to be compatible with zero-knowledge proofs, a popular blockchain trend this year.
