Paxos, a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, has hired Carolina Ceballos, the former Deputy Chief Compliance Officer at Facebook Payments, as its first dedicated Chief Compliance Officer.

Paxos’ General Counsel, Ben Gray, announced Ceballos’ appointment on Thursday in a statement published on Paxos’ website.

Gray described Ceballos’ appointment as another significant step taken by Paxos toward strengthening the company's culture of compliance and oversight.

The General Counsel noted that Ceballos has been charged with ensuring that Paxos meets its global regulatory obligations.

Ceballos will also see to it that the blockchain infrastructure company continues to act as a trusted partner for clients on all compliance issues, Gray said.

“I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as Chief Compliance Officer at Paxos! Thank you to all the Paxos team who have made me feel so welcome and looking forward to supporting the transformation and modernization of the global financial system. Onward to a new adventure!” Ceballos wrote on LinkedIn.

“As we uphold the highest standards and rigor for our compliance programme, our clients can rest calmly knowing that Carolina’s stewardship will ensure that Paxos remains the safest and most reliable blockchain infrastructure company in the market,” Paxos said in the statement.

Ceballos' High-Profile Career

Ceballos’ experience of more than 15 years of industry comes from working at high-profile organizations such as Facebook, Western Union, the Bank of France, the Prudential Control and Resolution Authority (ACPR), the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC), among others.
