• Eli van Goudoever brings track record of multi-million dollar and Euro investment
  • Cryptohopper CEO Ruud Feltkamp seeks rapid expansion over next 12 months

Amsterdam, 13 August 2021: Automated crypto trading bot platform Cryptohopper has expanded its executive management team with the appointment of Eli van Goudoever as chief financial officer.

The 35-year-old finance expert is the first new addition to the executive team at the Dutch-based cryptocurrency business, which is targeting significant growth over the next 12 months.

van Goudoever will lead the finance department and has the primary task of securing substantial funding to further accelerate Cryptohopper’s expansion.

He brings considerable fundraising and managerial experience and joins Cryptohopper from cyber security start-up Zivver, where he closed a $17m financing round during the pandemic. Prior to that, he spent four years at EclecticIQ where he was responsible for the company’s corporate functions and for bringing in more than €30m in investment.

This will be his first move into cryptocurrency, although he previously advised Cryptohopper on its financing options shortly after its launch in 2017.

“It is good to see the company has been successful in showing strong autonomous growth entirely through bootstrapping. Now Cryptohopper is ready for a massive scale-up and the next step in its success,” said van Goudoever, who is co-founder and advisor to CFO community, a network of tech CFO's operating from the Netherlands.

Cryptohopper, which has established itself as one of the leading online trading bot platforms and has strong partnerships with a range of crypto businesses including Binance, Bitvavo, Bitpanda, sees the appointment of a CFO as the first stage in its expansion strategy.

The business is also investing in the technology and applications as it looks to provide the world’s most easy to use and sophisticated automated crypto trading platform.

Chief executive and co-founder Ruud Feltkamp personally undertook the recruitment process to select a CFO to drive the business forward.

Feltkamp said: “Eli has an excellent reputation as a leading fundraising officer in the Netherlands. He is here to lead our fundraising and get the best investors on board to enable Cryptohopper to grow faster.”

Cryptohopper is seeking to further add to its management team shortly with the appointment of new Chief Technology Officer.
