The evolution of Hedera will include Brett McDowell assuming a new role as the Chair of the Hedera Governing Council. Alex Popowycz will assume a new role as Chief Information Officer (CIO). Tom Sylvester will stay on as General Counsel, and Sam Brylski will stay on as Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) and Regulatory Counsel. Finally, Young Cho will stay with Hedera in his existing role as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for an estimated six months while he completes wrap-up activities and searches for and trains his replacement, after which he will transition over to Swirlds.
Hedera will no longer have a CEO and Chief Scientist. As a result, three key roles staying with Hedera long-term (Brett McDowell [Chair], Alex Popowycz [CIO], and Tom Sylvester [General Counsel]) will report directly to the Board of Directors.
