Leon Marshall, a former executive at Genesis, has joined Mike Novogratz's Galaxy Digital as global head of sales.
Per his LinkedIn, this crypto trading veteran held the sAMe role at Genesis from January 2019 until June 2023.
Genesis was a unit of the Digital Currency Group (DCG) that, along with Genesis Global Holdco and two of its lending business subsidiaries, Genesis Global Capital and Genesis Asia Pacific, filed for bankruptcy at the start of this year.
“I am sincerely grateful for the chance to collaborate with industry leaders LIKE Mike Novogratz, Jason Urban, Christopher Ferraro, and Erin Brown,” he said in a LinkedIn post. “Together, we will leverage our expertise and experience and I look forward to contributing to the continued success of the firm.”
Marshall's previous jobs list includes strategy and business development at the permissionless and decentralized platform Gnosis, a portfolio manager at CryptoCompare and several other companies, a metals and soft commodities trader at UBS Investment Bank, and an M&A analyst at JPMorgan Chase.
He said in the post that,
“Having delved into the world of digital assets back in 2017, I am very confident in the bright prospects of the digital asset industry despite the challenges we face.”
He added words of gratitude “to my previous employer for the invaluable lessons I have learned” while at the company, and the people he had worked with.
Marshall gained his education at London Business School, New York University (where he focused on 'Cryptoassets: Regulation and Investment'), and the University of Oxford.
Meanwhile, last week, a US federal judge ruled in favor of Galaxy Digital in a case regarding the termination of a $1.2 billion acquisition deal with BitGo.
The court dismissed BitGo's lawsuit, stating that Galaxy had a valid basis for ending the agreement due to non-compliant financial documents provided by the digital asset trust company.
In late March, Galaxy said that it had lost a whopping $1 billion last year due to “depressed market conditions” as a result of unrealized losses on certain investments in the financial services company's primary investments portfolio.
Prior to that, in December 2022, the company announced it would buy Argo's Helios Bitcoin (BTC) mining facility and provide an additional $35 million loan to help with restructuring efforts.
