The management team at Bitpanda is joined by Chief Financial Officer, Peter Grausgruber. Grausgruber worked at the Austrian oil and gas company OMV for the last six years. Most recently, he was Head of Strategy for the company’s upstream division. Prior to this, he gained experience at PwC Austria whilst responsible for the consulting department, dealing with strategy and finance-related topics.

“The focus of my career is to help companies grow”, says Grausgruber, who got to know a lot of companies as an external advisor.

“Now, I support Bitpanda in scaling their growth strategy. As CFO, I’m not only responsible for financial matters, but also for further establishing their professional structures and assisting with their ambitious expansion plan.”

We’re very happy Peter is joining Bitpanda during this exciting growth phase. He brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and enthusiasm. We look forward to his contributions and welcome him to the company.

Bitpanda’s 154 team members from 34 nations all work in the company’s headquarters in Vienna, Austria. The broker platform offers its over 1 million users easy buying and selling of cryptocurrencies. Recently we launched our first global product, the Bitpanda Global Exchange, and as part of an IEO, sold tokens worth €43.6 million. In April, we received a licence as a payment service provider in accordance with European legislation (PSD2) from the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA). This allows us to launch products that will close the gap between the old and the new world of finance and to make our vision a reality.
