He takes up the reins after previous CEO Daniel Haudenschild exited abruptly late January of this year.
Before Hohl’s official appointment, Swisscom Blockchain AG went through a transition period with the company’s chief digital officer Roger Wuthrich-Hasenbohler designated as interim head.
Haudenschild, meanwhile, was named president of Crypto Valley Association shortly after his unexpected departure.
Hohl has been a fixture of the international financial technology (fintech) and information technology (IT) scene.
He has been invited as consultant for various fintech and IT projects in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
It was when he was working at Sofgen that he was assigned to Manila to help put up an offshore development team.
Swisscom Blockchain AG is a subsidiary of Switzerland-based telecommunications company, Swisscom.
Among its services are digital asset custody, blockchain-based payments, crypto hosting, atomic swaps, token management platform provision, risk detection, and wallet and transaction screening among others.
Hohl is expected to serve in such capacity starting May 1.
