Bitfrost announced that it has selected Alfred Moeckli as its new Chairman of the Board.

According to an official press release shared with Finance Magnates, Alfred Moeckli, an executive veteran with more than twenty years of experience from the Financial industry, has been chosen by Bitfrost, a fintech ecosystem, to be its new Chairman of the Board.

Moeckli plans to continue with the course that Bitfrost is on and will create a seamless integration of crypto and banking services. Further, he intends to concentrate on enhancing the banking component based on the best Swiss practices as well as experience.

As a former Chairman of Coinify, Moeckli played an important role in the sale of Coinify to Voyager in its $85 million deal in the summer of 2021.

Prior to Bitfrost recruiting him, VP Bank AG secured Moeckli as the Group CEO. For almost six years, he successfully served the Group until January 2019.

Before VP Bank AG, he served bank zeiplus ag from mid-2008 until February 2013. Originally, he joined the bank as a Board Member, and after two and a half years he received a promotion to CEO. During his leadership, the market capitalisation of the VP Bank doubled.

Falcon Private Bank Ltd acquired his skills and experience as a Deputy Chief Executive Officer. For just over two years, he was positioned as Head of Institutional and Treasury.

In July 2004, he was the Chairman of Tradejet Ltd, an online brokerage. Over the course of six years, he fulfilled all requirements of the role.

The earliest known position that Moeckli worked in was the CEO of Swissquote Bank. He joined the online financial institution in July 1999 and completed the necessary duties.

Unique Expertise of Strategic Transformation Processes

Commenting on the announcement, Anton Chashchin, the Managing Partner of Bitfrost, said, “We are very pleased to have Alfred as incoming Chairman, considering his global banking experience and outstanding history of leadership. I look forward to working closely with Alfred, and I am confident that his profound knowledge of the financial industry and his unique expertise of strategic transformation processes will drive Bitfrost forward.”

“I am excited to take on the role of Chairman for this ambitious organisation. I believe Bitfrost is in a position to provide significant changes to the financial industry due to an effective and scalable business model and talented management team. I plan to see that potential realized,” says Moeckli.
