Romero, who worked for five years at the company in various positions, follows director of institutional sales, Christine Sandler, and ex-vice president and general manager, Adam White in quitting the firm.
Romero had also worked in White’s role, and his departure continues a winding down of institution-focused activity at Coinbase.
While continuing its expansion, retail and cryptocurrency industry business now forms a priority for the exchange.
“After 5 years, I’m leaving Coinbase at the end of the month,” Romero confirmed in his post, adding:
“I’m planning to take some time to figure out what’s next, but I remain as optimistic as ever about the potential of cryptocurrency and Coinbase.”
“An increasing number of cryptocurrency entrepreneurs are quietly building the infrastructure necessary for a more open, permissionless and decentralized version of the Internet and the global financial system,” Romero continued.
