Cryptocurrency exchange Binance continued its streak of recruiting compliance professionals from rival companies by appointing former Gemini Chief Operating Officer Noah Perlman as global chief compliance officer, a company spokeswoman confirmed.
Perlman takes the reins of Binance’s compliance program from Senior Vice President of Compliance Steven Christie, who was appointed in September after leaving rival crypto platform Kraken. Christie is staying with the company.
Previously, Perlman served as Gemini’s first chief compliance officer before being promoted to chief operating officer, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Perlman also previously worked for Morgan Stanley for more than a decade, holding titles that included global head of financial crime and global head of special investigations. He is also a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York’s Criminal Division and served as general counsel for the New York division of the Drug Enforcement Administration.
