With more than thirty years of executive-level experience at public and private companies around the globe, Roling is poised to help Coinme continue its mission to help the world gain access to virtual currency.
“Chris brings wide-ranging experience through his work in a variety of roles with both Fortune 500 companies and high-growth businesses like ours,” said Coinme co-founder and CEO Neil Bergquist. “His expertise in global expansion and financial management will be invaluable as Coinme continues to expand its presence and cryptocurrency services throughout the U.S. and Asia.”
