Rob Catalanello has joined B2C2 as CEO of the OTC cryptocurrency liquidity provider’s Americas business, B2C2 USA, based in New Jersey.
Immediately prior to joining B2C2, Catalanello was working as a consultant, advising financial institutions on the setup, structure and day-to-day operation of capital markets, e-commerce, FX, commodity, cryptocurrency, and blockchain businesses in the US.
Catalanello spent nearly a decade at Credit Agricole, where he was managing director, head of fixed income markets sales, Americas. He also held FX sales roles at Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan, and spent a brief stint at Edgewater, which he joined in 2016. Catalanello also served on the New York Federal Reserve FX Markets Committee for nine years.
“Bringing Rob onto the team represents a major milestone for B2C2. He will be instrumental in expanding our client franchise to the U.S. market,” says Max Boonen, founder and CEO of B2C2.
Catalanello says: “I’m excited to join B2C2 and look forward to bringing the firm’s world-class cryptocurrency offering to the U.S. market. B2C2 displayed exceptional foresight in offering the industry’s first single dealer platform three years ago and will continue to bring FX market know-how and best practices to the digital asset class.
