Today I am pleased to announce that Eric Scro is joining Coinbase as Vice President of Finance. Eric joins us from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), where he spent the last 8.5 years, most recently as the Head of Finance.
We are growing our institutional business rapidly and Eric’s experience and leadership will be invaluable in scaling the business and building out our New York office.
With more than 18 years of experience in Finance, Eric has held a variety of hands-on and leadership roles in financial planning and analysis, investor relations, investment banking, and accounting. His background includes transaction and subscription business models driven by volume-based, technology and data businesses at industry leading companies.
As the VP of Finance, Eric will be focused on helping serve institutional clients and deal with the increasingly complex financial and regulatory requirements of the business. Eric’s ability to cultivate long-standing relationships with key constituents and his deep knowledge of the traditional Financial Services sector will provide Coinbase with invaluable insight as it continues to expand into new markets. Eric will also help guide the New York office’s growth across multiple business functions and assist in the development of new product offerings like Coinbase Custody.
