Today, Quickbit announces the strengthening of Group Management. Elvira Vänerfors, formerly Senior Compliance Officer & Group MLRO at Quickbit, will take up a new role as Head of Compliance and become part of the management team.
Since June 2021, Elvira has been a major contributing factor to Quickbit’s success within the Legal & Compliance team. Among other things, Elvira has worked on making Quickbit’s in-house products ready for the market.
Within the scrope of the reorganization and the preparations to launch new products, Quickbit has undergone changes, which have placed new demands on management, regulations and processes. Since spring 2023, Elvira has been a driving and leading factor in Quickbit’s work with this. Elvira is thus a key employee in Quickbit’s new organization, which is also referred to as Quickbit 2.0.
Today, Elvira works, among other things, with licences in the markets where Quickbit has operations, preparatory work for the upcoming EU harmonized MiCA regulation (Markets in Crypto Assets), and is responsible for Quickbit’s work to counter money laundering and terrorist financing in the in-house developed products.
Elvira has a law degree from Stockholm University and came to Quickbit from Telia Company where she worked as Group Ethics & Compliance Officer.
“I think it is really exciting to be a part of this journey with Quickbit. My ambition is to continue contributing to the company’s development and expansion,” says Elvira Vänerfors, Head of Compliance.
“Today, Quickbit takes one step further as we are welcoming Elvira Vänerfors as a regular member of the Group Management Team as our new Head of Compliance. Elvira and Quickbit are a perfect match and I feel strengthened by the steps we are taking as an organization. With this, Quickbit is ready for the important journey we are about to undertake in carrying out a sustainable, planned and structured expansion”, says Daniel Sonesson, CEO Quickbit.
