Tezos replaces CFO with PwC Switzerland’s blockchain creator

  12 Jun 2019

Tezos Foundation announced the hiring of Roman Schnider, the former Assurance Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers(PwC) and Co-creator of its blockchain initiative. Schnider will take on the role of Chief Financial Officer and Head of Operations in summer 2019.

Over the past year, PwC Switzerland has served the role of an independent external auditor of the Tezos Foundation’s finance and business operations. This has allowed Schnider to become familiar with the Foundation and its protocol. Schnider was quoted as saying, 

“I sincerely look forward to joining the Tezos Foundation.Together, we will work to serve and support the Tezos community in the most effective, efficient and transparent way possible.”

Ryan Jesperson, President of the Tezos Foundation, stated,

As the Foundation continues to provide resources to a growing Tezos ecosystem, the CFO and operations lead will be critical to our success.

Roman’s experience makes him the ideal finance and operations specialist for our team. He is already familiar with the opportunities and challenges blockchain projects face and has a deep understanding of the Tezos Foundation from his time at PwC Switzerland.”

Roman Schnider has been with PwC for nearly 15 years and is now going to replace Eelco Fiole, who joined Tezos only five months ago. Schnider had launched PwC’s blockchain and cryptocurrency assurance department back in 2016. His work was not limited to a single field, with Schnider working in various roles with a special focus on investment banking.

Jesperson conveyed his gratitude to Eelco Fiole by saying, “We want to thank Eelco for his contribution to the development of the Foundation and wish him all the best.”
