Coinbase turned to the former CEO of LinkedIn for help
Former CEO of LinkedIn will head the crypto-currency start-up Coinbase. According to the news, published on Monday, Emily Choi will take the post of vice president of the department for corporate and business development. Now, Choi faces the challenge of bringing Coinbase to new markets, focusing on the development of global relations. Before joining LinkedIn, Choi also worked for Warner Bros. Entertainment in the department of corporate development and digital business strategies. She also worked for Yahoo in the same position.
In its statements, Coinbase focuses on potential purchases and emphasizes Choi’s experience in this field: “In addition to the vast experience in building and expanding fast-growing companies, Emily also earned a reputation as a human rights defender at every stage of mergers and acquisitions, which is now very useful for Coinbase.”
Perhaps the work of Choi in Coinbase suggests that the exchange continues to create strong leadership. In late January, the company took a similar step, inviting former Tina Bhantnagar, the former head of Twitter, to co-operate, which took Coinbase’s position as a customer support team.
