Huobi hires a new compliance director

Huobi has hired a new compliance director—Elaine Sun Ye Lin, CoinDesk has reported today. Before joining Huobi last month, Sun held the position of head of compliance for the State Street’s Chinese branch, where she had worked for over six years. Thanks to her previous experience in working with foreign governmental institutions, Sun will oversee the exchange’s compliance efforts on a global scale, says Huobi spokesperson Jiayi Li.

“We are happy to welcome Elaine into the Huobi family," Fu Liting, HR director of Huobi Group, said through a spokesperson. "Her expertise in compliance and in traditional financial markets will definitely be an asset to the company as we look to ensure our compliance and work with regulatory bodies.”
