The Journey from Goldman Sachs to Coinbase
Roger Bartlett is leaving Goldman Sachs to join Coinbase, a cryptocurrency exchange. He spent a year at Goldman Sachs as a managing director and worldwide co-head of operations for Global Markets. Prior to that, he spent nearly five years as the worldwide head of operations for Equities. He spent six years as a vice president at Credit Suisse before joining Goldman Sachs.
Bartlett announced on Linkedin:
It’s time to embrace the crypto economy after 16 years at Goldman Sachs. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be joining Coinbase as the Global Financial Operations Director next week.
He stated that now is the time to put his Goldman Sachs skills to use and pursue his “desire to help allow the next generation crypto economy.”
“The exciting purpose-led objective to generate economic opportunity in the world, in a customer first, automation first approach is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of constructing the next stage of the digital transformation,” the former Goldman Sachs executive said.
Coinbase is a cryptocurrency exchange with a Nasdaq listing. The number of verified users on the network has climbed to 89 million, according to the business. Meanwhile, towards the end of last year, the number of monthly transacting users had risen to 11.4 million.
Coinbase also stated that its trading volume surged by more than 8.5 times last year compared to the previous year, adding that its “market share of trading volume increased in practically all assets.”
