Coinbase’s VP of communications, Kim Milosevich, will be departing the company at the end of the year, according to an update on LinkedIn. She has worked there since August 2020.
“It’s true that crypto never sleeps which means that people in crypto generally don’t sleep! The pace and progress of the space has been astonishing this last year. That also means I could use a little break!” she wrote.
“For now, I’m going to focus on making sure the team is set up for success and will support Emilie and Brian as they explore next steps for comms at Coinbase. I’ll be here until December. Then it’s family and ski time,” she added.
Prior to Coinbase, Milosevich spent seven years at Andreessen Horowitz running its content and marketing. She has also worked at Yahoo and Skype.
Her exit comes 10 days after Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong called out the SEC for refusing to provide clarity on its yet-to-be launched lending product, Lend. Armstrong described the SEC’s lack of explanation for why Lend is a security as “sketchy behavior coming out of the SEC recently.” In the tweet threat, the CEO said that the agency refused to meet with him while he was in Washington DC.
