Today, we are excited to welcome David Abner as Gemini’s Head of Global Business Development.
David will lead the expansion of Gemini’s founding business and strengthen our reputation as a trusted and secure cryptocurrency exchange and custodian. He will manage a team focused on building Gemini relationships with large 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 WisdomTree Executive Vice President and CEO of WisdomTree Europe, where he oversaw a significant expansion in managed assets as it became the ninth largest ETF provider in Europe. Prior to WisdomTree David was managing director and head of ETFs at BNP Paribas and Bear Stearns. David also wrote 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 broader adoption cases and stronger use globally. David will work to ensure that Gemini remains the partner of choice for organizations seeking information and guidance as they seek to engage with cryptocurrencies in a safe and controlled manner.
David is the latest addition to a highly skilled group of senior leaders who have joined Gemini over the past few years, including Jeremy Ng as Head of the Asia Pacific Region, David Damato as Chief Security Officer, Sydney Schaub as Counsel General and Robert Cornish as Chief Technology Officer.
