Backpack, the crypto exchange founded by FTX and Alameda alums, has appointed Oliver Sleafer as its new chief financial officer (CFO). Sleafer joined Backpack last October as its head of treasury. Two years ago, he was head of liquidity management in the Asia-Pacific region for payments company Stripe, having spent the previous five years in the same role at Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse. Backpack was founded by Armani Ferrante and Tristan Yver, alums of defunct trading companies Alameda Research and bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, respectively. Backpack recently raised $17 million in Series A funding at a $120 million valuation.
