Welcoming new board members

At the annual general assembly of the Bitcoin Association Switzerland on the 28th of March 2017, our members appointed two new board members who both both stand out through their contributions to the local Swiss Bitcoin and Fintech ecosystem and community.

Roger Darin as Community Manager

Roger has been helping us since January 2016 with co-organizing events and putting endless hours of work in editing the videos for our YouTube Channel bitcoinlectures.tv. Since early 2017 he is also managing the social media presence of the BAS on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Roger is also connecting our association with the wider Swiss finance and technology scene through his involvement in SICTIC and the SFTA. As the probably best connected person in the local Fintech scene, we’re very honoured to have him on our board.

 

Isabella Brom as Treasurer

Isabella works as IT advisor at Ernst & Young, where she is the driving force behind EY's Blockchain and Bitcoin projects. Most prominently, she lead the launch of a EY-branded Bitcoin wallet application in combination with placing a Bitcoin ATM in the Zurich EY offices and enabling her firm to accept Bitcoin as payment for their services.
