Cowen Inc. (COWN) is growing its digital asset team with the addition of two crypto-native hires.
The New York-based investment bank hired Jackie Rose as director of institutional sales within its Cowen Digital team. Rose was previously head of institutional business development at Blockchain.com.
In addition, Cowen hired Chase Campbell as vice president of digital asset sales. Campbell was previously an institutional sales associate at crypto exchange Coinbase (COIN).
“Cowen Digital is actively hiring and expanding our team in a strategic build over the next five years,” Eric Rose, Cowen’s managing director and head of Cowen Digital execution said in a statement. “Despite recent volatility in the sector, we continue to see growth and investment opportunities for the long-term," he added.
Cowen's two additions come after the bank unveiled its digital asset division this year to offer full-service trade execution and custody solutions for institutional clients.
