We’re thrilled to announce that security expert Nils Puhlmann will be joining us as Chief Risk and Security Officer.

Puhlmann was the Chief Trust and Security Officer at TripActions, a consumer-facing travel management company, and Twilio, a cloud communications platform-as-a-service. He was also the co-founder and a former board member of the Cloud Security Alliance, a global community of over 50,000 computer security professionals.

In his role at MoonPay, Puhlmann will be focusing on assuring the safety and security of all operations as we continue to scale. His wealth of experience in security, risk management, and compliance will be critical as we expand into new markets, ensuring we adhere to all regulations and create a secure ecosystem for our users.

Commenting on his new role, Puhlmann said:

“MoonPay’s growth over the last 24 months has been impressive in a particularly competitive market. Its mission  to provide the technology that will allow one billion users to access cryptocurrency by 2030 is one that I have long-shared and  I am thrilled to join this talented team at this exciting stage of the company’s development.
“As MoonPay continues to expand into new markets and work with a range of new partners, risk, compliance and security will become increasingly important. I look forward to building on the stellar work already done by the team, and working to set a higher bar for the industry.”

Hiring Puhlmann is a significant step for us, and follows our March appointment of former Coinbase UK CEO, Zeeshan Feroz, as Chief Growth Officer. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him on board and use his talents to maintain our position as a secure and trusted platform.
