Bitpanda Welcome New Chief Legal Officer

Bitpanda Welcome New Chief Legal Officer

Oliver Stauber has been named as the new Chief Legal Officer at BitPanda.

Stauber boasts an impressive 15 years of professional experience as an attorney which he will now put to good use at BitPanda. In this time, he has dealt with the ins and out of financial law and embraced areas such as Corporate Finance, Tax Law and Capital Markets. Most importantly for his new role at BitPanda – a trading platform operating in the cryptocurrency sector – Stauber has a large amount of experience dealing with regulatory challenges surrounding FinTech, blockchain, ICOs, and cryptocurrencies.

This he picked up at his previous legal firm, Stadler Völkel in Vienna. Here he specialised in the field of Bitcoin and blockchain technology. During this time, he cultivated a proven track record dealing with the legal side of the emerging industry and gained a large amount of experience.

This experience will now be invaluable as he sits on the FinTech Advisory Board of the Federal Ministry of Finance and current CLO dealing with the legal matters both within BitPanda. As well as outside the firm also, as he builds relationship with counsel around the global market.

Bitpanda CEO Eric Demuth divulged the reason Strauber was appointed in this new position, saying that, “Oliver is a pioneer in crypto law. His strong background and experience in Tax and Capital Markets especially for digital assets, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies make him superbly qualified for this position.”

Struaber himself expressed that he hoped that in his new role at BitPanda, he and the platform can “lead a successful, complex transformation and evolution within the financial industry.”  He also explained that “Bitpanda is a company with an outstanding, solid reputation driving the fintech revolution and tackling change in the financial industry over the next few years. Joining the team at this stage is a strategic move to provide insights and expertise for the next stage — which is growth.”

Strauber is the second new major appointment at BitPanda in the last 2 months following Michael Poetscher joining the organisation as its new global marketing strategy CMO early in December
