Brian Brooks, CEO of Binance.US, announced this Friday (06) afternoon that he has left his position at the exchange based in San Francisco, California, USA. Former head of the Office of the Comptroller of the American Currency (OCC), Brooks has been in charge of the company since May this year.
“Greetings to the crypto community. Informing everyone that I resigned as CEO of BinanceUS. Despite the differences in strategic direction, I wish my former colleagues every success. New and exciting things to come!” wrote the director on Twitter, without giving further details.
In order not to make its users worried about the executive's departure, the Binance.US account has also published a note on the social network, with the endorsement of Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, current chairman, and former CEO of Binance Global. According to the publication, Zhao said that “this transition will not affect BinanceUS customers in any way”.
Last month, the director of Binance Brasil, Ricardo Da Ros, also announced through social networks his departure from the brokerage after having been in the position for only six months. In the publication, he said that the reason for his departure is a "misalignment of expectations".
