Anchorage Hires Executive Sales Leader to Meet Growing Institutional Demand
To meet global and traditional banking sector demand, Anchorage has hired Head of Sales Camilla Churcher
Over 2021, more than $17 billion dollars of venture capital investment has been poured into digital assets, with banks, fintechs, hedge funds, family offices, and nearly every sector of institutional finance interested in digital assets. Interest in Anchorage has increased in turn, beginning with Anchorage receiving an industry-first federal bank charter from the OCC this January and being selected by the US Marshals for digital asset services in July.
Since the beginning, Anchorage has been committed to erasing the lines between traditional and cryptonative finance to foster a thriving digital asset economy. Today, we provide banks the needed infrastructure to offer crypto to their customers and give fintechs access to crypto services that make digital assets a part of their existing B2B offerings. This demand is only increasing as Anchorage’s industry milestones have grown our presence concurrently with the broader trend of global institutional interest in crypto.
To serve this growing volume of institutional demand, Anchorage Digital has hired Camilla Churcher as its Head of Sales. Camilla brings a blend of cryptonative and global financial services background essential to Anchorage’s mission for the coming year with 18 years on Wall Street including experience in traditional prime brokerage sales at Credit Suisse and Bank of America. Most recently, Camilla has expanded her traditional markets expertise by building a career in crypto from her roles at digital asset trading platform, LGO Markets (acquired by Voyager), and most recently, cryptonative lending platform, Celsius, where she served as Global Head of Business Development.
“Anchorage has a clear strategic vision for growth I knew I wanted to be a part of bringing to a global institutional market,” said Anchorage Digital Head of Sales, Camilla Churcher.
Every member of the Anchorage team has been hand-picked for their unique skills towards serving our growing client base, and Camilla is no exception. Camilla will help our sales team understand our clients holistically, serve as trusted advisors, and help institutions interested in digital assets understand the significance of Anchorage’s secure custody solution as the infrastructure basis for secure, accessible digital asset solutions.
With the addition of Camilla to our team, Anchorage builds on a strong team of experts in engineering, legal, product, design, and marketing, adding a capable leader to bringing existing and prospective clients to Anchorage’s purpose-built custody, trading, lending, staking, governance, custom integrations, APIs, and more.
