Bitcoin Suisse accelerates its growth plans in view of a project that will soon see it listed on the stock exchange. It does so with new appointments within the management team. The next step involves the launch of an STO and an IPO, leading to the traditional financial markets. 

The Swiss company, a leader in cryptocurrency services and more, has announced the addition of Roger Studer to its board of directors. This prestigious name is joined by Philipp Vonmoos, former CEO of the subsidiary Swiss Crypto Vault, who will become Head Corporate Development & Strategy and Head of the M&A (Mergers and Acquisitions) department.

The appointment took place at the Annual General Meeting on June 30th. 

Roger Studer is former Head and Investment Banking at Vontobel (a Swiss-based global investment firm) and currently Chairman of the Board of Directors of Studer Family Office. 

In short, his resume is that of a person who is well experienced with financial services. He will be joined by Giles Keating on the Board of Directors. Together they have 65 years of experience in the field. 

Philipp Vonmoos will be given the delicate task of preparing Bitcoin Suisse’s listing on the stock exchange. The first step will be the launch of an STO (Security Token Offering) and an IPO (Initial Public Offering). It will be supported by CEO Arthur Vayloyan and the expertise of the CFO Rolf Gätzi. He was responsible for M&A activities at Falcon Private Bank where he was in charge of business development in fintech and crypto. 

Bitcoin Suisse continues its growth

Active since 2013, a pioneer in crypto services, Bitcoin Suisse is preparing for the great leap. It will be supported by an undistributed capital of 54 million Swiss francs and Series A financing. 

With these funds, Bitcoin Suisse plans to accelerate its international expansion and broaden the range of its products after obtaining regular banking licenses to operate both in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The new Board member, Roger Studer, was enthusiastic about the new assignment and added:

“I look forward to developing Bitcoin Suisse into the leading publicly listed company in the digital asset industry”.

CEO Arthur Vayloyan commented on the changes in the board that aim to add experts to the team who are keen to drive the cryptocurrency industry forward: 

“With Roger on the board and Philipp in the management team, we now have an even stronger team to deliver on our promise. It will require resilience and dedication, but the foundations on which we can build are strong and our momentum continues to increase”.

Finally, Niklas Nikolajsen, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, concluded: 

“At Bitcoin Suisse, we have always aimed high and those who have accompanied us on this journey have helped us continually reach new heights. I welcome Roger to the board and look forward to having his energy and experience helping us move forward. Philipp has done an exceptional job in building our custody business from the ground up, and I have no doubt that he will excel in his new role and help lead Bitcoin Suisse in its next growth phase and beyond”.
