Elliptic, the leading blockchain intelligence company, today announced its Board of Advisors: David Harris, Martine Niejadlik, Richard Brown and Nadav Rosenberg.
Elliptic CEO, Dr. James Smith, said, “We have carefully and thoughtfully selected these advisors, and we are humbled to be working with them. Each advisor is among the very best in the world at their discipline, and each brings a unique strategic perspective to Elliptic.”
David Harris brings deep expertise in building and leading large financial institutions, having served as Chief Executive Officer of the Chicago Board Options Exchange Stock Exchange, as well as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the National Stock Exchange.
Martine Niejadlik established herself as a leading expert in anti-money laundering (AML) and blockchain regulation during her time as Chief Compliance Officer at Coinbase. Prior to her time at Coinbase, Martine ran risk management teams at PayPal, eBay and Amazon, and was a lead developer of the FICO score.
Richard G. Brown has been an advisor to Elliptic since 2013. Richard is currently Head of Technology at R3 CEV, a consortium of global banks to design and deliver advanced distributed/shared ledger technologies to global financial markets. Prior to R3CEV, Richard was the Executive Architect for Industry Innovation and Business Development for IBM’s Banking and Financial Markets business in the UK.
Nadav Rosenberg’s success as Managing Director of Europe Operations at Taboola.com, and as a senior executive and Regional Director Groupon UK & IR translates to invaluable experience in corporate and business development strategy; especially in fast-growing technology companies.
Taken together, Elliptic’s Board of Advisors represents expertise in four key areas: leading large financial institutions; AML and regulation; blockchain applications and growth strategy. To attract an advisory board of such outstanding calibre is in itself an endorsement of Elliptic’s value within the blockchain community.
London-based Elliptic works with law enforcement agencies and financial institutions to identify illicit activity on the Bitcoin blockchain. Elliptic is backed by Octopus Ventures and is the founding member of UK Digital Currency Association.
