According to her LinkedIn, Cunningham has spent almost a decade at the NYSE. She served as president from May 2018 to December 2021 and remains a member of its board. She was the NYSE’s first female president.

Uniswap Labs — the developer behind the Uniswap decentralized cryptocurrency exchange — said that Cunningham was joining the team due to her belief in “the potential of decentralized exchange and in Uniswap Labs’s commitment to fairer markets.”

“Stacey’s seen how it’s done in TradFi — and she’s excited about working with our team toward a better system in DeFi,” Uniswap Labs said.

As with many crypto companies that have seen an influx of hires from TradFi over the past year, Cunningham isn’t the only establishment figure Uniswap Labs has tapped recently.
