Dibbs today announced the onboarding of two C-suite hires as the company grows beyond its origins as a blockchain-enabled collectibles marketplace toward becoming a platform for tokenisation and redemption of physical and digital items for IP owners and collectors. 

Since its launch in 2021, Dibbs has raised more than $15 million from a variety of notable investors, ranging from Amazon, Foundry Group, CourtsideVC, Founder Collective and Tusk Venture Partners to athletes including Chris Paul, Channing Frye, Skylar Diggins-Smith, DeAndre Hopkins, Kevin Love and Kris Bryant.

The company appointed Ben Plomion as Chief Marketing Officer to develop and lead the company’s go-to-market strategy with brands, as well as William Plumeri as Chief Compliance Officer as the company moves to fulfil its regulatory commitments.

A marketing veteran, Plomoin joins Dibbs over two decades of B2B marketing and commercial experience, including his most recent seven-year tenure at contextual intelligence company, GumGum, where he served as Chief Growth Officer and Chief Marketing Office for three years each. He joined GumGum as SVP of marketing prior to being promoted to C-level.

Plomion also led programmatic advertising platform Chango’s marketing team during its acquisition by tech company, Magnite, in 2015. He is a board member of MMA Global, a marketing trade association that brings together the full ecosystem of marketers, technology providers, and sellers working collaboratively to shape the future of marketing.

“Joining Dibbs gives me the opportunity to bridge two of my passions; marketing and the exciting world of NFTs,” said Plomion. “Dibbs has already laid a firm foundation for digital ownership and it’s exciting to use my experience to ensure this foundation is utilized wisely by the IP owners that seek to increase customer engagement and retention in the new digital world.”

A certified anti-money laundering specialist, Plumeri joins Dibbs with experience in both TradFi and crypto. His last role was at digital asset lending platform, BlockFi, where he led the global institutional compliance program. Prior to that, Plumeri was the Director of Compliance at Securitize, a digital transfer agent and registered ATS, where he designed and implemented a compliance program focused on tokenising traditional securities on the blockchain. Plumeri was also a compliance officer at cryptocurrency exchange, Gemini, and held various roles at JPMorgan and BNP Paribas.

“The future of NFTs is predicated on trust derived from compliance for both consumers and the brands that seek to create and grow relevance for their IP in the digital world. As someone who has navigated the complexities of digital asset compliance, it’s exciting to join a company that is at the forefront of providing greater utility and accountability as this sector matures in the years to come,” said Plumeri.
