Dan Romero, the Coinbase’s vice president for international business through a Medium post on Friday announced that he is all set to leave the cryptocurrency exchange at the end of this month.
Romero, whom, according to his LinkedIn profile, joined Coinbase in April, 2014 did not provide specific reasons for departing the company except
“I’m planning to take some time to figure out what’s next… “.
He further stated that,
“Staying true to a mission often requires doing hard or even unpopular)things. But I’ve been lucky to learn first-hand that it’s those hard things that often generate the most value.”
Romero said that he had joined the exchange when it had just about 20 staff . Coinbase presently has a workforce of more than 700. In his 5 years working for the firm, he served in “almost every aspect” of the company’s businesses.
In spite of Coinbase’s effort to retain valuable human resources, Dan like some other senior or mid-level staff could not be persuaded to serve in the firm longer that they deem necessary.
Seven senior or mid-level employees have left Coinbase since last October. Among them are Christine Sandler, Coinbase’s director of institutional sales who left the firm for Fidelity investments. Soups Rajan, Coinbase’s director of data science and risk and Vaishali Mehta, the exchange’s senior compliance manager.
