The Luxembourg-based digital asset marketplace has a new global CEO, and his name is Jean-Baptiste Graftieaux. Prior to that, he was the company’s European CEO.

Graftieaux has extensive crypto and finance experience, having worked at PayPal and eBay for more than a decade. Between 2014 and 2016 he was Bitstamp’s Chief Compliance Officer, where he was responsible for working with monetary authorities.

Nicolas Huss – Chairman of the Board of Directors – noted that Graftieaux has supported Bitstamp’s efforts since the early days and has “led admirably” the European business over the past year.

“We are delighted to welcome a CEO with such an impressive track record and very much look forward to the contribution and perspective he will bring to the company in his new role,” he added.

For his part, Graftieaux claimed that Bitstamp is a “very trusted crypto exchange” with millions of customers and a strategic vision for the future financial ecosystem.

“Together with our highly experienced leadership team and more than 500 employees, we are well positioned to continue to accelerate crypto access for our valued customers and partners around the world. As Global CEO, I look forward to building on this strong foundation,” promised the top manager.

Bitstamp’s previous CEO was Julian Sawyer. During his tenure, the company obtained government licenses in North America, formed numerous partnerships with banks, and reached a user base of over 4 million customers.

Bitstamp’s collaboration with Immortals

A few months ago, the company signed a three-year deal with American professional esports organization – Immortals – becoming its official cryptocurrency exchange. Additionally, the deal made Bitstamp a founding member of the gaming company.

The main goal of the cooperation is to educate the gaming community about the crypto sector and provide fans with additional opportunities.

Prior to this deal, Bitstamp partnered with another esports brand – London-based Guild Esports. Both parties signed a three-year global sponsorship deal for approximately $5.6 million, Guild Esports’ largest sponsorship deal in its history. The company estimates that it will generate annual sales of $1.8 million over the three-year period.
