Coinbase’s Chief Product Officer Departs Unicorn Crypto Company In November
Jeremy Henrickson, a Coinbase executive which worked as the Chief Product Officer has left the company on November 2. After starting to work there in July 2016, the exec spent more than two years in the company. He initially was tasked as the vice president of product and then started to be the Chief Product Officer in 2017.
Coindesk has reported on this story and interviewed a spokeswoman from Coinbase, which affirmed that Henrickson made “invaluable contributions” to the company during the two years that he worked there. According to her, he was responsible for helping to oversee a team which has grown to five times the original size during his run on Coinbase.
She has also affirmed that he scaled up the ability of Coinbase of executing a vision for the product and the engineering teams as well and that was very important to guide the company.
She has described him as a very important and inspirational leader at the company and affirmed that he helped to create a more open financial system.
About Jeremy Henrickson
Jeremy Henrickson already had a long career before he was tasked as the Chief Product Officer at Coinbase. He started his career at Apple in the 90s after graduating at Stanford.
Despite many companies which are laying off staff because they are in a bad financial situation, Coinbase is right at the opposite side: it is booming. Some people at the company affirmed that he is receiving his long deserved and hard-earned rest period after he oversaw the scaling of the company.
The Future Of Coinbase
Coinbase’s plans for 2019 are set. Despite all the internal changes, the company intends to maintain its successful run and to list many other assets. Last week, members of the company affirmed that 30 assets would be added soon (but not in all the jurisdictions). Most of the assets will be launched only in 2019, though.
The company has also opened a new office in New York City and it is currently expanding its business and its employee base. Some of the high-profile people leaving the company are Adam White, which worked there for a long time but will not work at Bakkt, the crypto exchange created by the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) and Hunter Merghart, which has the head of trading.
