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 be undoubtedly putting to good use at BitPanda. In this time, he has dealt with the ins and outs of financial law, and worked in 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 also has a large amount of experience dealing with regulatory challenges surrounding FinTech, blockchain, ICOs, and cryptocurrencies.

He gained this experience at Stadler Völkel in Vienna, a legal firm he worked at prior to joining BitPanda. 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 this emerging industry.

This experience will prove to be invaluable as he is now a member of both the FinTech Advisory Board of the Federal Ministry of Finance, and current CLO, both of which deal with legal matters within BitPanda.

Bitpanda CEO Eric Demuth divulged the reason why Strauber was appointed to this new position: “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 major recruitment at BitPanda in the last 2 months; Michael Poetscher joined the organisation as its new global marketing strategy CMO early in December.
