Crypto Valley Association appoints two new female board members

Mon, 24 Sep 2018, 04:31 am UTC

The Crypto Valley Association (CVA), a non-profit organisation supporting the blockchain ecosystem in Switzerland, has announced the expansion of its Board to seven with the election of two new female Board Members.

The new members are María Gomez, Lead for Ecosystem Development at blockchain-based project Aragon, and Jenna Zenk, CTO of Zug-based startup Melonport.


As CVA Board members, Gomez and Zenk will have a variety of responsibilities including co-chairing the CVA Working Groups, receiving international delegations, interacting with other Swiss and international organisations, representing the CVA and Crypto Valley at external events, and supporting the CVA's own local and international initiatives.

“We are thrilled to have found two competent and committed new Board members, who are equally committed to the success of Crypto Valley and will help us continue our efforts,” Oliver Bussmann, President of Crypto Valley Association said.

Gomez has a background in corporate and finance law and has worked on business development, operations, and strategy in leading crypto organizations. Prior to joining Aragon as Lead for Ecosystem Development, Gomez was a corporate lawyer. She worked for several years in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions practice.

“I’m happy to join the Board and have the opportunity to help build a strong, diverse and international ecosystem where the values and vision of the projects, teams and people working on open, neutral, borderless and censorship resistant blockchain technologies are represented,” Gomez said.

Zenk is a software engineer with a background and experience in finance. Prior to joining Melonport, she worked in the hedge fund industry, both in Paris and New York.

“I am excited to join the CVA board to represent the voice of the crypto startups and technologists in their efforts to build cutting-edge technology and drive innovation forward. I am also honored to represent the Crypto Valley in Switzerland and abroad,” Jenna Zenk, Melonport CTO said.

The Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) last week issued a new guidance to its members, regarding the treatment of blockchain-based companies in the country. The guidelines have been developed with the help of the CVA Regulatory Working Group.
