Binance Bolsters Compliance Team, Welcoming Steve Christie Back to Leadership Role
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has announced the return of Steve Christie, its former Senior Vice President of Compliance, to the fold. Christie is stepping into the role of Deputy Chief Compliance Officer (DCCO), filling the gap left by Kristen Hecht, Binance’s previous Deputy Chief Compliance and Global Money Laundering Reporting Officer.
“I am impressed by what Binance has accomplished on the compliance front since I stepped away momentarily,” Christie remarked. “I always believed that no other crypto exchange dedicates as much effort in compliance as Binance… The team is even stronger today, and I am supported by a robust team with quality talent.”
Under the leadership of Noah Perlman, Binance’s Chief Compliance Officer, Christie will work to enhance the exchange’s global compliance program further. This involves close collaboration with regulators, industry bodies, and Binance’s business leaders to advance the company’s efforts and commitment to best practices in regulatory compliance.
Perlman expressed his enthusiasm for Christie’s return, highlighting his deep compliance expertise and familiarity with Binance’s operations. “When Steve first joined Binance in 2022, the compliance team underwent fast growth and made tremendous efforts and investments to strengthen and mature its compliance culture and program, which Steve helped lead. Compliance is always evolving and maturing, and he has helped Binance meet new changes and challenges, making compliance a business enabler and driver of sustainable industry growth,” Perlman said.
Binance ended its announcement by reiterating a commitment to “achieving the highest standards of regulatory compliance.”
