MoonPay, the global payments solution for cryptocurrency, announced the appointment of Nils Puhlmann as its Chief Risk and Security Officer. 

Prior to joining MoonPay, Puhlmann was the Chief Trust and Security Officer at TripActions, a consumer-facing travel management company that enables consumers to build, manage, and scale corporate travel management programs on the web or through a smartphone app. He held the same role at Twilio, a cloud communications platform-as-a-service based in San Francisco. Elsewhere, Puhlmann was the co-founder and former board member of the Cloud Security Alliance, a global community of over 50,000 computer security professionals.

In his role at MoonPay, Puhlmann will focus on assuring the safety and security of all operations as  the company continues to scale. His wealth of experience in security, risk management, and compliance will be critical as MoonPay grows its user and partner base across new markets, ensuring the business adheres to all regulations and creating a secure ecosystem for its users.

“As MoonPay continues to expand into new markets and work with a range of new partners, risk, compliance and security will become increasingly important. I look forward to building on the stellar work already done by the team, and working to set a higher bar for the industry,” Puhlmann said.
