Cowen Digital Expands Institutional Team with Crypto-Native Hires
NEW YORK, August 25, 2022 ─ Cowen Digital LLC, the digital asset division of Cowen Inc., has announced a series of new appointments drawn from leading digital asset businesses to expand the firm’s Institutional sales team.
Among the executives joining the team is Director of Institutional Sales, Jackie Rose, formerly Head of Institutional Business Development at Blockchain.com. Jackie brings a range of experience in investor relations, private equity and investment banking. Prior to Blockchain.com, she served as Vice President of Investor Relations at Park Square Capital, where she was responsible for managing fundraising processes across the firm’s private credit products. Previously, she was an Associate at The Carlyle Group and an Investment Banking Analyst for JP Morgan.
Former Coinbase Institutional Sales Associate, Chase Campbell, also joins Cowen Digital as Vice President of Digital Asset Sales. In his previous role at Coinbase, he supported US clients spanning traditional finance (hedge funds, asset managers, endowments, venture capital firms, HNWIs, corporates, family offices) and crypto-native firms (mining companies, DeFi and NFT projects) as they looked to trade and custody digital assets.
Rose and Campbell join the existing Cowen Digital team which includes Head of Strategy and Product, Keith Coyne, and Kyrill Firshein, Senior Salesperson. Keith, whose experience spans both the digital asset and traditional industry, was formerly Director of Strategic Partnerships at Paxos.

Other recent strategic hires also include David Kroger, Digital Data Scientist; Nolan Aibel, Digital Asset Associate; and Juan Velez, Analyst.
Drew Forman, Head of Cowen Digital, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Jackie Rose and Chase Campbell onto our team to harness the experience they bring from both the crypto-native and institutional sides of the industry.

These new hires bolster our existing team as we continue to develop the business and expand into new growth areas.”
Eric Rose, Head of Execution, added: “Cowen Digital is actively hiring and expanding our team in a strategic build over the next 5 years. Despite recent volatility in the sector, we continue to see growth and investment opportunities for the long-term. We are excited to have Jackie and Chase joining our highly-experienced team to help execute this vision.”
