Galaxy Digital (GLXY.TO) has appointed Danielle Johnson as global head of distribution, and also added her to the company’s executive committee, according to a memo obtained by CoinDesk.

  • Johnson will oversee Galaxy’s global sales and product strategy for institutional investors, while also eyeing client services across Galaxy’s businesses. She’ll report to co-President Chris Ferraro. She joined Galaxy in May as head of Private Markets on Advisory.
  • Johnson previously was a managing director at Credit Suisse (CS), leading the bank’s venture capital coverage based in New York. Prior to that role, Johnson was a co-head of Credit Suisse Americas' equities businesses. She was at Goldman Sachs (GS) for more than two decades prior to joining Credit Suisse.
  • Despite volatility and headwinds across cryptocurrency markets, individuals from traditional Wall Street firms continue to depart for crypto-focused roles. Earlier this week, three executives at JPMorgan (JPM) left the bank to join digital asset firms.
