Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao has announced that the exchange has hired Steven Christie as its senior vice president (SVP) of compliance from rival exchange Kraken.
Zhao tweeted that Steven Christie joined Binance “a few months ago”.
Binance is still planning to hire “a few hundred more compliance people”, Zhao added.
Christie would lead a 750-strong team at the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange.
A day earlier, Binance announced it was forming a board to advise it on regulatory and political matters.
The advisory board’s members include David Plouffe, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, Lord Ed Vaizey, a former U.K minister of state for culture and the digital economy, and former chair of the First Bank of Nigeria Ibukun Awosika.
