Coinbase named Brett Redfearn, most recently the director of the SEC’s division of trading and markets, to run its capital-markets group, which includes its exchange operations and a brokerage and custody business.
Mr. Redfearn, who left the SEC in December, is the second high-ranking former SEC official this week to take a role with a bitcoin-focused business. On Monday, former SEC Commissioner Jay Clayton took on an advisory role at One River Asset Management, a Greenwich, Conn.-based firm that started investing in bitcoin in November.
