Seed CX brings in ex-head of ICE

Perhaps the most exciting appointment is that of Seed Hash, Seed CX’s settlement subsidiary. Its new public director is Julie Myers-Wood, who is currently CEO of investigative and compliance consulting firm Guidepost Solutions.

Myers-Wood has an array of political experience, having worked as a federal prosecutor and headed up a division of the Department of Commerce. Most notably, she headed up the much maligned US Immigration and Customs Enforcement – otherwise known as ICE. She has also worked as a Special Assistant to the President of the US and as a Chief of Staff in the US Department of Justice.

Alongside her will be Kathleen Camilli, formerly Credit Suisse Asset Management’s Chief US Economist. Currently Camilli heads up her own economic consulting firm, Camilli Economics.
