Global Debt Registry joins The Mill, with a focus on blockchain

The blockchain services company has been in Wilmington since 2013. It has since expanded to New York, but it still keeps a presence here.

It's all about the blockchain.

Global Debt Registry (GDR) has been innovating the debt collection industry since 2006, when it was founded in Missouri. In 2013, Mark Parsells took over as CEO of the company and relocated it to Wilmington.

“It’s a great place to build a company, especially if you’re in financial services,” former CEO Parsells said in a 2015 article.

Now a thriving blockchain services company, GDR has an office in New York City, but it’s keeping a Wilmington presence. It also has a new CEO in Charlie Moore, the former Chief Commercial Officer who became chief exec in 2017.

On Oct. 18, the company announced that its new Wilmington office would be at the downtown coworking space The Mill. The local office, led by GDR CTO Robert Brown, will focus on blockchain engineering.

“We’re very excited to begin this new phase of GDR’s journey within such a great environment,” said Brown. “Wilmington has a strong technology startup community with a rich talent pool of experienced technologists within financial services, and beyond. GDR is proud to now be a member of that community and excited to be collaborating with such talent.”

Now that it’s smack in the middle of it, GDR has plans to engage with the Wilmington startup community with a series of quarterly meetups for technologists within the blockchain and fintech spaces, including speakers, panels and a platform for networking.
