We’re thrilled to announce the promotion of two leaders at Unstoppable: Sandy Carter to Chief Operating Officer and Head of Business Development, and Lisa DeLuca to Sr. Director of Engineering. Both Sandy and Lisa have been instrumental in building Unstoppable and supporting our mission to deliver user-owned identity for the world. 

Sandy Carter promoted to Chief Operating Officer and Head of Business Development

As COO and Head of Business Development, Sandy will continue to drive strategic partnerships for Unstoppable as while leading Business Development Community, Communications, and Legal. She will continue to report to CEO Matt Gould. 

Since joining Unstoppable as SVP and Channel Chief in December 2021, Sandy has grown Unstoppable's strategic partnerships more than tenfold, from 61 to over 750. She also founded Unstoppable Women of Web3, an initiative that has connected with over 45,000 women on technology topics including Web3, blockchain, and the metaverse. 

“Sandy’s drive, passion, and expertise have unlocked value and new possibilities for our community,” says Matt Gould, CEO and Co-Founder of Unstoppable Domains. “She has a unique ability to lead and inspire that sets an example for the entire Web3 industry. As COO and Head of Business Development, Sandy will continue to help us redefine what it means to own your identity in Web3.”

Prior to Unstoppable, Sandy was a VP at AWS, where she drove partnerships in cloud, machine learning, IoT, and blockchain. She is a Board Member at Altair, Chairman of the Board for the non-profit Girls in Tech, a past member of the Diversity Committee at the World Economic Forum, and a founding member of Blockchain Friends Forever (BFF). 

“I'm thrilled to take on a new role and supercharge our mission to deliver user-owned identity for the world," said Sandy. "We're in the early innings of Web3 and the metaverse, with so much potential to unlock for our community, and I can’t wait to continue building with this incredible team." 

“By 2030, American women are expected to control much of the $30 trillion in financial assets that baby boomers will hold. Yet in the Web3 space, less than 5% of leadership roles are held by women. I’m proud to be part of a Web3 company that’s leading the charge in closing this gap – both through gender parity on our leadership team, and through initiatives like Unstoppable Women of Web3,” added Sandy. 

Sandy was named one of the Top 10 Most Powerful Women in Tech by CNN and has won awards including 2023 Crunchbase Influential Women in Sales, 2023 CRN Channel Chief, Top 100 Global Thought Leader by Awards Magazine, Top 150 Business Transformational Leaders, a Top 100 Chief Tech Leader, Top 115 Most Inspirational Women of Web3/Metaverse, 100 Women Davos, Two Lovies Awards for Best Metaverse HQ, Top 14 Edge Leader, Federal 100 Award Winner, and is a member of Fortune Most Powerful Women.

Lisa DeLuca promoted to Senior Director of Engineering

Lisa DeLuca has been elevated to Senior Director of Engineering, where she will oversee the full Engineering and Product team. Lisa joined Unstoppable in February 2022 to lead engineering for login and identity. 

“Lisa is an exceptional leader, inventor, and engineer, and she makes Unstoppable better every day,” said Matt. “Her mindset for innovation will help us continue to foster a world-class engineering organization.”

With over 800 patent applications filed and over 650 granted, Lisa is the 2nd-most prolific female inventor in the world. Prior to Unstoppable, Lisa spent more than 16 years at IBM as a Distinguished Engineer and Director of Product Management, running a worldwide organization that launched an AI Sustainability Suite of products with enterprise use cases for the Petabytes of data flowing through The Weather Company SaaS APIs.

“Unstoppable is building an entirely new category of user-owned digital identity in Web3,” said Lisa. “I’m excited to lead the engineering and product team as we continue to break new ground with innovative products that put power in the hands of people.” 

We’re thrilled to celebrate Sandy and Lisa and their leadership as we continue to unlock the power of digital identity for the world.
