London, 3 August 2021 – MoonPay, the global payments solution for cryptocurrency, has announced the appointment of Nils Puhlmann as its Chief Risk and Security Officer. Puhlmann joins MoonPay at a high growth period for the company.
Prior to joining MoonPay, Puhlmann was the Chief Trust and Security Officer at TripActions, a consumer-facing travel management company that enables consumers to build, manage, and scale corporate travel management programs on the web or through a smartphone app. He held the same role at Twilio, a cloud communications platform-as-a-service based in San Francisco. Elsewhere, Puhlmann was the co-founder and former board member of the Cloud Security Alliance, a global community of over 50,000 computer security professionals.
In his role at MoonPay, Puhlmann will be focusing on assuring the safety and security of all operations as the company continues to scale. His wealth of experience in security, risk management, and compliance will be critical as MoonPay grows its user and partner base across new markets, ensuring the business adheres to all regulations and creating a secure ecosystem for its users.
Puhlmann’s appointment follows MoonPay’s hiring of former Coinbase UK CEO, Zeeshan Feroz, as its Chief Growth Officer in March.
Ivan Soto-Wright, Founder and CEO at MoonPay said:
“At MoonPay, we have ambitious growth plans, and as we continue on our journey and expand into new markets, the safety and security of our customers and partners’ data is of the utmost importance.
