Swisscom’s blockchain head departs to become Crypto Valley Association president

Swisscom’s blockchain head departs to become Crypto Valley Association president
Haudenschild, the chief executive officer of Swisscom Blockchain, has left the
telecommunications provider and is taking up a new role at the Crypto Valley
Association (CVA).

A press
release dated January 30 confirmed
Haudenschild’s departure, with Roger Wüthrich-Hasenböhler,
Swisscom chief digital officer and head of digital business, taking over with
immediate effect.

No reason was
given by Swisscom originally as to Haudenschild’s move or any future moves. Yet
a release from the CVA, dated February 1 , confirmed
Haudenschild had been elected as board president of the Swiss-based blockchain
ecosystem and directory.

Speaking to , Haudenschild stressed the importance of
continuing to build bridges and market Switzerland’s crypto expertise. “We need
to keep Switzerland right at the vanguard of being the best place to do
business,” he said. “If we don’t do that, capital and talent have legs, and we
already see it seeping out.”

The positions
at the CVA had been made available after four board members announced in
November they were not planning to stand for re-election. Oliver Bussmann,
Vasily Suvorov, Ren é Hüsler
and Nicolas Schobinger said in a joint statement
that a “phase of renewal and re-invigoration… with new board members to take
the helm” was necessary for the association.

For Swisscom’s
part, the operator put on record its gratitude to Haudenschild for his work in
building up its blockchain arm, with customers including Raiffeisenbank and
Falcon Bank on board. As this publication previously reported in December ,
proposed plans between Swiss Post and Swisscom to develop a ‘national’
blockchain would see utilities ‘playing an important role’ by ‘acting as
blockchain gatekeepers.’

Haudenschild and his team laid the foundations for Swisscom Blockchain Ltd.,”
said Wüthrich-Hasenböhler in a
statement. “Thanks to his broad understanding of the technology, he made
blockchain-based solutions accessible to other companies.”
