Cryptocurrency custodian BitGo has hired Coinbase’s former chief compliance officer to lead its compliance and anti-money laundering (AML) programs.

Jeff Horowitz led Coinbase’s global compliance program before leaving in October. Prior to Coinbase, he spent 12 years with Pershing, a clearinghouse owned by BNY Mellon. 

Horowitz was also co-chair of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association’s AML Committee. He began his career as a regulator with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

Late last month, the U.S. Treasury Department announced that BitGo had agreed to pay $93,830 to settle 183 “apparent violations” of multiple sanctions programs.
