CVA Announces New Governance of Southern Alps Chapter

By | Articles, Public Announcements

The Crypto Valley Association has announced a change in governance of its Southern Alps Chapter, with the current chair, Gianni Minetti, passing the torch to Lars Schlichting and Gianfranco Prini, respectively taking over as co-chairs for Ticino and for Italy. With this, the Southern Alps Chapter intends not only to further accelerate the aggregation and dissemination of know-how in Ticino, but also expand its activities to Italy as a natural extension for exchanges and the cross creation of value.

Lars Schlichting brings to the Chapter his advisory experience to corporate clients in the application of new technologies like blockchain, as well as in the compliance with regulatory laws. An attorney-at-law, Lars was part of the legal department of the Swiss Federal Banking Commission (now FINMA) and Partner at KPMG. Since 2018 he has worked with Kellerhals Carrard law firm and the Poseidon Group Holding.

Gianfranco Prini will support the Chapter thanks to his uniquely vast and eclectic knowledge and passion for computer science. Founder and executive of multiple technology companies, Gianfranco has a 45 year long academic career in Pisa and Milano as a professor of theoretical computer science, logics and AI; programming languages, operating systems and software engineering; computer networking, web technologies and digital communication; history of computer science and computing.

President Daniel Haudenschild commented “I am very happy that the CVA Southern Alps could gain such unique expertise from Lars Schlichting and Gianfranco Prini, two outstanding players in the ecosystem, while retaining the solid performance always granted by Gianni Minetti and Julia Borghese in every event they organized. With this governance we are best set up to serve the needs of the buoyant crypto and blockchain industry in the southern alps.”

Gianni Minetti and Julia Borghese, current chair and co-chair, will remain part of the CVA and keep actively contributing to its activities and success.

The Chapter will keep supporting contributions to discuss and grow blockchain and cryptographic technologies in academic and business communities, promote events for private and public organizations willing to explore this technology, and engage industry associations, financial institutions, research institutes and local government representatives.
