Tezos Foundation hires former PwC exec as new CFO

The Tezos Foundation has hired Roman Schnider as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Head Of Operations, the company announced in a post, replacing Eelco Fiole who stepped into the role approximately half a year ago.

Schnider worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) for 15 years, most recently as its Assurance Director. In 2016, he helped set up the PwC's blockchain initiative. Prior to joining Tezos, he was the company’s independent external financial auditor.

“As the Foundation continues to provide resources to a growing Tezos ecosystem, the CFO and operations lead will be critical to our success,” noted Tezos President, Ryan Jesperson. “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.”

Schnider is set to start later this summer.
