Elliptic, the blockchain intelligence and security firm, today revealed the members of its new board of advisors: David Harris, Martine Niejadlik, Richard Brown and Nadav Rosenberg. The members bring expertise in four critical fields: leading large financial institutions; AML and regulation; blockchain applications and growth strategy.
Elliptic CEO, Dr. James Smith, said: “We have carefully and thoughtfully selected these advisors, and we are humbled to be working with them. Each advisor is among the very best in the world at their discipline, and each brings a unique strategic perspective to Elliptic.”
David Harris served as CEO of the Chicago Board Options Exchange Stock Exchange, as well as chairman and CEO of the National Stock Exchange. Martine Niejadlik handled AML and regulation as Chief Compliance Officer at Coinbase, and before that ran risk management teams at PayPal, eBay and Amazon, and was a lead developer of the FICO score.
Richard G. Brown is currently Head of Technology at R3CEV. Prior to R3CEV, Richard was the Executive Architect for Industry Innovation and Business Development for IBM’s Banking and Financial Markets business in the UK. Richard has been an advisor to Elliptic since 2013.
Nadav Rosenberg was Managing Director of Europe Operations at Taboola.com, and a senior executive and Regional Director Groupon UK & IR.
Back in September Elliptic announced it is partnering with a cryptocurrencies exchange, Crypto Facilities, also based in the UK, offering trading in bitcoin forward contracts, which can be used for hedging existing positions.
