The year 2022 is upon us and CV VC finds itself in full swing. We have just released a new investment product and published the latest edition of the CV VC Top 50 Report. Our recent success would not have been possible without CV VC’s fantastic team, which continues to inspire me every day.
This is why I am pleased to announce that we are strengthening our management board. Due to the strong growth of the business and the successful expansion of the portfolio, Ruth Salvisberg and Florian Kohler join the management board of CV VC, which oversees all activities from investments to the CV Labs ecosystem.
Ruth Salvisberg joins CV VC as Head of Operations and Finance. Previously, she held key positions in the financial management of international and listed Swiss companies and worked for one of the big four auditing firms. Ruth Salvisberg holds an MBA and an Executive Master of European and International Business Law from the University of St. Gallen (HSG) and is a certified US CPA. Ruth brings a wealth of expertise in traditional finance which will be essential in meeting the needs of corporations as they venture into the new world economy, powered by blockchain.
Florian Kohler joined the management board as Chairman CV Labs on 1 January 2022. Together with myself, he will further develop the CV Labs ecosystem globally. He has already held this role on an interim basis in recent months. Florian is a proficient leader and initiator of successful enterprises.
Recognizing their excellent contribution to running and expanding our ecosystem activities, Tracy Trachsler and Nicolai Reinbold have been promoted to new roles at CV Labs. As the new Managing Director, Tracy executes CV Labs’ overall strategy and oversees the company’s day-to-day operations as well as its global growth and positioning. And as Global Head of Expansion & Innovation, Nicolai heads the international expansion and innovation activities at CV Labs, with the aim of establishing CV Labs as a leading player in the global blockchain space. Please join me in congratulating both of them on these well-deserved recognitions.
As part of the company’s reorganization, co-founders Ralf Glabischnig and Marco Bumbacher have decided to step down from their roles at CV VC and CV Labs. In the future, they will focus primarily on their entrepreneurial activities of the Inacta Group in Zug and the newly created Crypto Oasis Dubai (formerly CV Labs Dubai).
My sincere gratitude goes to Marco and Ralf for building up CV VC and CV Labs together. We have celebrated many successes and shared the vision of breaking new ground when it comes to finding and investing in the best blockchain ideas. Together, we have created one of the most established brands in the decentralized economy. I wish you, Marco and Ralf, all the best in your endeavors and look forward to future touch points.
