Customers Bank brings digital asset bankers onboard
Customers Bank has appointed seven new digital asset experts to its Digital Asset Banking Team.
The new hires include professionals across business development, technology, onboarding, payments, BSA (money laundering prevention) and compliance.
Customers Bank recruited Robb Layfield as managing director of digital assets and Dan Devine as senior vice president of digital asset product development.
A further five digital asset bankers will complete the existing team and expand on the bank’s broad coverage of the crypto industry, Customers Bank says.
The bank says the appointments will broaden the depth and expertise of its digital asset team as it continues to support the needs of commercial cryptocurrency and digital asset institutions.

Sidhu adds: “Our investment in building out the best crypto and digital asset team signals we are a serious participant in this space and committed to this business line for the long term.”
