Zenk is a software engineer with a background and experience in finance. She graduated from ESCP Europe in Paris, with a Masters in Management and Financial Engineering. Prior to joining Melonport, she worked in the hedge fund industry, both in Paris and New York.

As CVA Board members, Gomez and Zenk will have a variety of responsibilities including co-chairing the CVA Working Groups, receiving international delegations, interacting with other Swiss and international organisations, representing the CVA and Crypto Valley at external events, and supporting the CVA’s own local and international initiatives.

María Gomez said, “I’m happy to join the Board and have the opportunity to help build a strong, diverse and international ecosystem where the values and vision of the projects, teams and people working on open, neutral, borderless and censorship resistant blockchain technologies are represented.”

Commenting on her appointment, Jenna Zenk, Melonport CTO said, “I am excited to join the CVA board to represent the voice of the crypto startups and technologists in their efforts to build cutting-edge technology and drive innovation forward.
