The leading cryptocurrency exchange in Australia – Binance Australia – has announced it appointed Leigh Travers as its new Chief Executive Officer. He was previously CEO and Director of the blockchain technology company – DigitalX.

Binance Australia Has a New CEO

According to an official announcement, Binance Australia has tapped Leigh Travers as its new CEO. The top executive has experience in digital assets and blockchain technology since he was in charge of DigitalX for seven years. Travers also served on the Board of Australia’s blockchain industry body – Blockchain Australia – for 5 years.

He revealed that the new position at the trading venue coincides with his interests. Trevors asserted that his goal would be to expand the role of the blockchain industry in the next years:

“I’ve long been an advocate of the benefits that blockchain technology has to offer society, and it’s a mission of mine to grow the industry over the coming years. My key interests are shared with Binance Australia in championing the adoption of blockchain and the pathway for blockchain businesses in Australia. The opportunity to work with users nationally is incredibly exciting.”

In his turn, Sam Teoh – Chief Operating Officer at Binance Australia – praised Leigh Travers as the right choice for Binance Australia:

“We’ve observed the work Leigh has done at DigitalX for a while now and we’re excited to work with him not just on Binance Australia’s continued growth, but widespread adoption of blockchain businesses and cryptocurrency in Australia at large.”

CEO of Binance US Resigned From His Position

Binance US – the American branch of Binance – also went through some changes recently. At the beginning of August, CEO Brian Brooks announced his resignation. The 52-year-old entrepreneur was in charge for only three months.

Brooks did not elaborate much, simply explained that there were differences over the strategic direction of the exchange. However, he wished all the best to his former colleagues, assuring that he holds no grudges against the company.

Additionally, in July, the country manager of Binance Brazil – Ricardo da Ros – announced his decision to leave the exchange due to professional differences with the company’s top management:

“After 6 intense months as Country Manager at Binance, I decided to leave the company. There was a misalignment of expectations about my role, and I made the decision according to my personal values.”
