Blog header-David Abner

Today, we are excited to welcome David Abner as Gemini’s Global Head of Business Development.

David will spearhead the expansion of Gemini’s institutional business and bolster our reputation as a trusted and secure cryptocurrency exchange and custodian. He will manage a team focused on cultivating Gemini’s relationships with major institutional partners and high-net-worth individuals on a global scale.

David joins us after launching Dabner Capital Partners, a boutique advisory and investment firm focused on exchange traded funds (ETFs) and digital assets, following more than a decade at WisdomTree Asset Management. He served as Executive Vice President of WisdomTree and CEO of WisdomTree Europe, where he oversaw a significant expansion in assets under management as it became the ninth largest ETF provider in Europe. Prior to WisdomTree David was managing director and head of ETFs at both BNP Paribas and Bear Stearns. David also authored The ETF Handbook and is an educator in the ETF industry.

The cryptocurrency industry continues to experience tremendous growth and 2020 saw more institutions pour resources into the new asset class, setting the stage for wider adoption and stronger use cases globally. David will work to ensure that Gemini remains the partner of choice for institutions seeking knowledge and guidance as they look to engage with cryptocurrencies in a secure and regulated manner.

David is the latest addition to an incredibly accomplished group of senior leaders who have joined Gemini over the past few years, including David Damato as Chief Security Officer and Sydney Schaub as Chief Legal Officer (formerly General Counsel).

Welcome to the team, David!

Onward and Upward,
