As the first and only OCC-chartered digital asset bank, Anchorage Digital Bank N.A. is proud to serve some of the biggest names in traditional and decentralized finance to unlock the next generation of digital asset innovation. To best meet rising institutional demand for safe, secure, and federally regulated digital asset infrastructure, we continue to build out our senior leadership and board of directors.

Today, we are proud to announce the appointment of financial services executive Connie Shoemaker to the Board of Directors of Anchorage Digital Bank.   

“Adding a seasoned leader like Connie to the board of Anchorage Digital Bank marks the latest in our commitment to building the best regulated offering for institutions engaging in crypto. With parallel experience building a commercial bank at Goldman Sachs that led to new business lines and successful product launches, Connie brings exactly the expertise we need to advance the growth and expansion of the only OCC-chartered digital asset bank.”   

— Nathan McCauley, President of Anchorage Digital Bank

“In the years since I first met the founders, I’ve seen incredible growth at Anchorage Digital. Today, I’m excited to be joining the Board of Anchorage Digital Bank to help further that growth with my background building a bank at exactly the type of institution Anchorage Digital is attracting.”

— Connie Shoemaker, Anchorage Digital Bank Board Member

Shoemaker has over 25 years of experience in financial services and asset management, and currently serves as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Bridgewater Associates Holdings, Bridgewater’s parent company. 

Previously, she served as Chief Administrative Officer for Goldman Sachs Bank USA, helping to build Goldman’s commercial bank after the global financial crisis. Her role building the commercial bank helped Goldman use the bank to launch new businesses at the firm. Prior to her role as CAO, Shoemaker was the global head of Goldman’s strategy function during the global financial crisis, where she incubated new business across the firm and led efforts to grow  Goldman’s asset management business. Shoemaker has also held a senior leadership role at Macquarie Asset Management. A graduate of Duke University School of Law and the University of Alabama, she started her career in the M&A practice of Davis Polk & Wardwell, a major international law firm. 

As a strategic and forward-thinking leader, Shoemaker will play a crucial role in guiding Anchorage Digital Bank toward continued success for the long-term.

Shoemaker joins current independent board members, including Sarah Elliott and Julie L. Williams, who each bring a unique perspective on banking regulation and compliance. Elliott, a former OCC attorney, has served in chief compliance and general counsel roles across a number of technology and financial services firms. Williams is a history-making veteran of the OCC, where she twice served as Acting Comptroller of the Currency. With Shoemaker joining our board, Anchorage Digital Bank is poised to continue our work in breaking new ground as a leader in regulated crypto for institutions.
