Coincover, the blockchain protection pioneer, strengthens its leadership with the strategic addition of a new CFO and Head of Legal, following the recent onboarding of a Chief Commercial Officer.

Coincover is solidifying its executive team with pivotal hires, appointing Pablo Pinillos as Chief Financial Officer and Yoann Lewkowitz as Head of Legal.

This bolstering of the leadership comes in the wake of Ridhima Durham’s entry as Chief Commercial Officer, underlining Coincover’s commitment to robust governance and financial oversight amidst its growth trajectory.

“Precisely what we need at this critical juncture”

Vikki Sly, Chief People Officer at Coincover, remarked on the appointments with optimism, highlighting the extensive expertise Pablo and Yoann bring to the table. Their arrival at Coincover is seen as a critical element in driving the company forward, safeguarding customer assets, and fostering innovation in the dynamic blockchain industry.

“Coincover is thrilled to welcome Pablo and Yoann. Their extensive expertise and track records are precisely what we need at this critical juncture. We’re excited to have them on board and are confident that their contributions will make a significant positive impact on our business, ensuring that we continue to protect our customers’ assets and drive innovation in this ever-evolving industry,” said Sly.

Pablo Pinillos steps into the CFO role with a substantial background in finance, strategy, and operations, including his prior tenure as CFO of Bitrise and a significant stint at Qlik. His expertise in financial optimization and strategy is poised to drive Coincover’s financial planning and resource allocation to support the company’s scaling efforts. Pablo’s approach emphasizes strategic insight, value creation, and fostering a culture of continuous improvement and partnership to propel Coincover’s growth.

“My experience in the tech industry has shown the importance of providing strategic insights and generating value across the organisation through data-driven financial leadership. I’ve fostered a culture of continuous improvement, adaptability, and collaboration with strong strategic partnerships across the whole organisation to fuel growth. This entails the allocation of precise financial and operational resources to bolster our long-term strategies. I am excited to contribute to CoinCover’s mission of protecting blockchain assets and, in doing so, fortifying the company’s financial foundation for enduring success,” said Pinillos.

Yoann Lewkowitz, stepping in as Head of Legal, brings a rich legal pedigree from his Magic Circle training and significant roles at notable financial institutions. His responsibility will be to oversee all legal aspects of Coincover, from regulatory compliance to corporate governance. His seasoned experience in legal counsel will be critical in navigating the complex regulatory landscape of blockchain and protecting Coincover’s interests.

“I am privileged to join Coincover and support the company’s dedication to legal excellence in the blockchain protection industry. I am excited to see how the digital assets regulatory landscape will evolve and contribute to making Coincover a leader in the industry,” said Lewkowitz.

The new appointees are expected to make substantial contributions to Coincover’s mission of safeguarding blockchain assets. Pablo’s data-driven financial leadership will underpin the company’s economic strategy, ensuring the deployment of resources aligns with long-term objectives and supports sustained success. Meanwhile, Yoann’s legal acumen will be instrumental in guiding Coincover through the intricacies of financial services regulation and blockchain law, ensuring the company stays ahead of legal challenges while continuing to innovate in blockchain protection.
