tZERO has appointed Alan Konevsky as Executive Vice President and Chief Legal and Corporate Affairs Officer, effective March 2022.

One of the longest-serving leaders at the company

Konevsky was the former Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Legal Officer at tZERO. In his new role as EVP and Chief Legal and Corporate Affairs Officer, he will be responsible for a range of strategic, corporate, legal, regulatory, and other matters.

Matt Mosman, Chairman of tZERO’s Board of Directors and General Partner at Pelion Venture Partners, said: “Alan is a key member of the experienced tZERO team and as one of the longest-serving leaders at the company. He has played a critical role in tZERO’s strategy and operations, including during the leadership transition.

“Alan did a tremendous job in keeping the company humming during his interim leadership over the past months, and I look forward to watching him accelerate tZERO’s growth in his new role with the company together with David and the rest of the tZERO team.”

David Goone, Chief Executive Officer at tZERO, commented: “I am delighted to be a part of tZERO and work with Alan to lead our talented team through the company’s next stage of growth and development.”

Alan Konevsky, EVP and Chief Legal and Corporate Affairs Officer at tZERO, said: “It has been an honor to steer tZERO’s business operations during the leadership transition.

“I have great personal and professional admiration for David and his accomplishments and am enthused to continue working with the tZERO team as we develop new markets and products that leverage the secular relevance of digital infrastructure for institutional, retail, and consumer ecosystems, including with cryptocurrencies, securities, and NFTs.”
