Binance, the world’s leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency exchange, announced that it had tapped GE and Edelman veteran Patrick Hillmann as its chief communications officer. Hillmann will lead Binance’s global communications and public affairs division as it continues to grow, evolve, and usher the industry into a new era as a critical pillar of the global economy.

Serving as Binance’s first Chief Communications Officer, Hillmann will oversee every aspect of the organization’s corporate communications, public affairs, media relations and stakeholder engagement efforts. Hillmann’s purview will also include working alongside Binance’s compliance and security leaders to coordinate with global regulators.

Before joining Binance, Hillmann was the Global Head of Innovation on Edelman’s crisis and risk practice, where he spearheaded the firm’s cybersecurity and counter disinformation offerings. Before Edelman, Patrick held senior government affairs and public affairs positions at General Electric (GE) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM.) At GE and NAM, Patrick led those organizations’ advocacy efforts to countless global policy issues.

Binance Co-Founder Yi He said: “In just four years, Binance has grown at a pace rarely seen in recent history. As we continue our evolution from a disruptive tech startup to a respected global financial institution, we recognized that it was paramount that we recruit leading compliance, communications, and government affairs experts. Patrick’s proven track record of successfully helping reposition some of the world’s largest brands in highly regulated industries clearly sets him apart.”

“Joining the leadership team at Binance is a once in a lifetime opportunity to leverage my experience to support an organization that is truly changing the world. As we continue to grow in cooperation with global regulators, the potential of this industry is virtually impossible to project today,” said Hillman.

IBS Intelligence reported that Binance, a blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider, announced the appointment of Tigran Gambaryan and Matthew Price, both former Special Agents of the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) Cyber Crimes Unit in Washington, D.C.
