Brian Reisbeck is a 20 year veteran in the financial services industry who has served as the chief compliance officer at a major U.S.-based crypto exchange, said the official announcement. 

Coinme has appointed Brian Reisbeck as its new chief compliance officer in order to guide the organization in maintaining regulatory compliance standards during the next stage of its growth and international expansion.

The US-based cryptocurrency cash exchange has, over the past several years, expanded to offer the sale of bitcoin with cash at thousands of U.S. locations in 48 states. Last year, the company received licenses to operate in Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, and Alaska.

The company said its central focus will be to continue working with regulators as it is poised for national and international expansion and onboarding new partners to make access to crypto with cash instant, affordable, simple, and trusted.

Neil Bergquist, CEO and co-founder of Coinme, said: “Coinme is excited to welcome Brian Reisbeck to the company as part of our ongoing commitment to develop and maintain industry-leading compliance systems and controls. With Brian’s unique experience in helping launch Robinhood’s crypto exchange, we’re eager to support more companies that want to offer crypto-services while continuing to offer safe and secure crypto-services to Coinme’s enterprise partners like Coinstar and MoneyGram.”

Brian Reisbeck, Chief Compliance Officer at Coinme, said: “I am honored to help in Coinme’s mission to continue creating the most compliant and user-friendly crypto experience for customers. I am looking forward to providing my guidance and years of expertise in international expansion efforts and helping the company to continue to navigate the ever-changing regulatory environment at the federal and state levels while supporting the growth of its products and services.”

Brian Reisbeck is a 20 year veteran in the financial services industry who has served as the chief compliance officer at a major U.S.-based crypto exchange, said the official announcement.

He joined the unnamed exchange in 2019 and managed and supervised its compliance and regulatory programs unil October 2021.

Previously, he served as the anti-money laundering compliance officer for Robinhood, where he helped launch its crypto trading platform and implemented, managed, and supervised the firm’s enterprise-wide anti-money laundering and compliance programs.

He is a member of the largest international membership organization for anti-financial crime professionals, the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS).
