Gemini Welcomes Noah Perlman as Chief Compliance Officer

2019-08-29 CCO-01

Today, we are excited to announce and welcome Noah Perlman as Gemini’s new Chief Compliance Officer (CCO). Noah joins us from Morgan Stanley, a global financial services firm that provides investment banking, securities, and investment management services.

At Morgan Stanley, Noah was the Global Head of Financial Crimes and led the 350+ person Financial Crimes Group. He had firm-wide, legal and compliance responsibility for the governance, oversight, and execution of the firm’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Sanctions, Anti-Boycott, Anti-Corruption, and Government and Political Activities programs. Noah was also Chairman of the firm’s Political Action Committee and a member of numerous firm level risk and control committees.

Prior to his 13 years at Morgan Stanley, Noah was the Division Counsel for the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New York Division and an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) for the Eastern District of New York where he held several supervisory posts including, Special Coordinator for Crimes against Children and Deputy Chief of the Narcotics Section.

We started building Gemini in 2014, but waited to operate until we received our New York trust company license in October of 2015 from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS). Our decision — _to ask for permission, not forgiveness _— was a first in the crypto industry. We chose this path because Compliance is one of Gemini’s four pillars along with Product, Licensing, and Security. We are excited for Noah to continue to build on Gemini’s tradition of compliance.

As we build the future of money, we must first build trust; trust is our product.

Noah joins an incredible group of senior Gemini Astronauts hired over the past 18 months, which includes, Sydney Schaub (CLO, formerly GC) and David Damato (CSO). Welcome to the team, Noah!

If you’re interested in joining Noah and the rest of the Gemini team, we’re hiring in our New York, NY; Portland, OR; and Chicago, IL offices! Check out our careers page for more information.

Onward and Upward,
