Katrina Donaghy

Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Civic Ledger

Katrina Donaghy is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Civic Ledger, a multi-award winning Australian GovTech start-up helping governments to be more efficient, effective, accessible and transparent in an ever-increasing digital society.

Prior to founding Civic Ledger, Katrina was a career bureaucrat spanning 20+ years in both state and local government in Australia working in the areas of strategy, program delivery and revenue optimisation to improve the customer experience with government.  Coupled with Humanities and Entrepreneurial and Venture Development degrees and armed with her intellectual curiousity, Katrina has always been drawn to solving problems and when blockchain technology found her in October 2015, she knew that blockchain technology had a place in government.

In Australia, Katrina is a Director with Blockchain Australia, founded the Women in Blockchain Australia Chapter, speaks extensively on why blockchain matters in government, and is now involved with shaping the Australian Government’s National Blockchain Strategy.
