For a year and a half, the exchange founders have already hired several major specialists, among them: Nah Perlman, compliance director, David Damato, security chief, Sydney Schaub, general adviser, Jeanine Hightower-Sellitto, COO and Robert Cornish, CTO. Now they have appointed Julian Sawyer as a chief of the European branch. Prior to that, Sawyer was a cofounder and COO at Starling Bank, a fintech, mobile bank cooperating with post offices network.
Tyler Winklevoss spoke about the reasons for the expansion in Europe in a streamlined romantic tone, clearly in order to hide the true motives:

Gemini needs to be here and Julian’s deep knowledge and fintech expertise in these regions make him well-suited to lead Gemini’s expansion into this pioneering area of the world.
