BCB Group CEO Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie has left the firm to pursue new opportunities, the crypto banking firm said in a Wednesday email.
Sharp's replacement, Oliver Tonkin, has taken over from von Landsberg-Sadie as CEO.
Tonkin also previously held the role of general counsel at the firm. His elevation to CEO is a reflection of the "increasingly maturing [crypto] industry as the firm prepares for continued global growth and expansion," BCB said.
