Roger Bartlett, a Goldman Sachs veteran who has held various positions at the firm since 2005, announced he would be moving to Coinbase.
In a Friday announcement on LinkedIn, Bartlett said he would be running global financial operations at Coinbase after 16 years at the investment banking giant. The now-former global co-head of operations for global markets at Goldman Sachs said he would be working with Coinbase chief financial officer Alesia Haas, president and chief operating officer Emilie Choi, vice president of institutional products Greg Tusar, and head of institutional sales Brett Tejpaul to help users “embrace opportunities offered by digital assets and its ecosystem.”
“It’s time to embrace the crypto economy,” said Bartlett. “It’s time to [...] follow my passion to help enable the next generation crypto economy. The inspiring purpose-led mission to create economic freedom in the world, in a customer first, automation first approach is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of building the next stage of the digital evolution.” . . .
