The company is keeping their figurative eyes ahead of them right now, because they are experiencing an impressive amount of growth. They have been working on infrastructure that will help them expand the platform to reach a wider range of assets for their consumers to trade with.
New vice president Wagner came from Amazon Web Services (AWS). While with AWS, he was the GM over AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and AWS Serverless App Repository. Before that, he worked at Microsoft, and he graduated from both Princeton and the University of California-Berkeley.
All of these experiences have helped him to establish values and experience that will help him be the best person for the job. As Coinbase puts it, “We couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.”
