Job Appointments | February 6, 2019 By:

The Crypto Valley Association (CVA), a Swiss-based not-for-profit association supporting the development of blockchain and cryptographic-related technologies and businesses, has elected five new board members during the Association’s annual general assembly.

Kevin Lally, executive manager at the CVA; Kamales Lardi, digital strategist & founder of Lardi & Partner Consulting, Mattia Rattaggi, head of regulatory affairs at SEBA Crypto AG and independent crypto / blockchain advisor,  and Martin Berweger, attorney at law and civil law notary at Wenger & Vieli Ltd., were elected to the board of directors, with Daniel Haudenschild, formerly CEO of Swisscom Blockchain, elected president.

The Board’s two remaining members, Maria Gomez, ecosystem development lead at Aragon, and Jenna Zenk, CTO at Melonport, both elected in September, resigned at the conclusion of the election.

“I am delighted to join the CVA as president, and to be given the opportunity to build upon the tremendous work of the outgoing board members,” said Daniel Haudenschild. “Over the course of the previous board’s tenure, there was a significant expansion of the membership base, the establishment of a number of high-profile partnerships, and exclusive blockchain consultation with the State Secretariat for International Finance (SIF). The combined knowledge and experience that my newly appointed colleagues will bring to the board will help continue this momentum and direct the next phase of activity for the CVA.”

The CVA Board members will be responsible for helping coordinate the CVA Working Groups, representing the CVA and Crypto Valley at a range of events, welcoming international delegations, interacting with organisations from Switzerland and more globally, and actively supporting local or international actions relating to the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector. Board Members also play a pivotal role in collaborating with the government, aiding the CVA to establish a pioneering environment for digital technologies, both locally and internationally.
