Bitpanda welcomes Christian Steiner as a key team member for regulatory expansion. He has spent his professional life developing his career as a regulatory expert and has many years of experience in supervisory roles within the Austrian Financial Market Authority. Christian will be tasked with dealing with queries from a legal perspective and to evaluate special questions and conditions in regards to lawful compliance.
Christian’s team will use their combined expertise to develop innovative financial products in line with current regulations.
Christian himself graduated with a law degree and PhD from The University of Innsbruck and also holds a bachelor degree in Management and Economics. He completed a university course in the field of Financial Market Supervision and will receive a masters degree from the WU Wien (Vienna University of Economics and Business).
Christian strove to combine the fields of law and business and always had an interest in the two which led him to work in the Austrian Financial Market Authority as a supervisor for five years. He was responsible for the supervision of prospectuses, investigation of possible breaches of the Austrian Capital Market Act and dealt with legal inquiries of non-compliant companies on a near-daily basis. In addition, Christian was in attendance at the task force on ICOs within the Austrian Ministry of Finance.
‘I am eager to learn from the different perspectives at Bitpanda and the company will give me the opportunity to fortify my knowledge. I like working together in a young and motivated team and I am looking forward to the strong focus on crypto assets,’ said Christian.
We are looking forward to seeing how Christian’s experience and enthusiasm will benefit the company. With him joining our team we are getting ever closer to the 100 team member and we are still looking for talented and motivated people to join the company.
