Crypto brokerage Voyager adds Bitfury CEO Brian Brooks to board of directors

Voyager Digital, the publicly listed crypto brokerage, announced Monday that it has added Brian Brooks, CEO of Bitfury and former CEO of US-based crypto exchange BinanceUS, to its board of directors.

Brooks also served as acting Comptroller of the Currency during the Trump administration, working in that role between May 2020 and January 2021. He was also chief legal officer for Coinbase between 2018 and 2020.

"Brian's extensive background as an executive at major crypto companies and as the leader of important government regulatory initiatives in the crypto space will help propel the growth of digital assets and Voyager's business," Philip Eytan, Voyager's chairman, said in a statement.

Brooks departed BinanceUS following a three-month stint. Bitfury announced that it had brought in Brooks to serve as CEO early last month.
