Binance UK Director Departing After Less Than 6 Months

Binance UK director Teana Baker-Taylor is leaving the cryptocurrency exchange after a relatively short, year-long tenure.
A Binance spokesperson confirmed to CoinDesk that Baker-Taylor will be leaving "in a few days" and added: "We would like to thank Teana for her hard work and success at Binance UK and wish her all the best for the future."
Josh Goodbody, Binance's director of growth and institutional business, will take responsibility for the UK arm after Teana's departure, the spokesman said. Goodbody, a lawyer by training, joined Binance in January of this year from the competitor exchange Huobi Global, where he dealt with Europe and America.

"I have been honored to help shape Binance UK's strategy and product development," said Baker-Taylor in a statement emailed to CoinDesk. "I enjoyed working in the innovation-led culture that Binance is known for and I will always be grateful to have had the opportunity to work with an industry leader during this exciting time of crypto growth."
Baker-Taylor, a former HSBC banker, joined Binance less than six months ago in May of this year. She was previously the executive director of Global Digital Finance, a UK-based association for crypto regulation and policy trading.
She has been tasked with advancing Binance's plans to open a crypto exchange in London, regulated by the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Baker-Taylor isn't the only high profile crypto personality to leave Binance in the past few months. Former ConsenSys partner Ajit Tripathi, who led banking and payment partnerships, and the Binance Charity Foundation in the region have also left the organization.
