Conio: Orlando Merone Is the New General Manager

Conio, the first Italian wallet for the custody of Bitcoin and digital assets, with Poste Italiane and Banca Generali as shareholders, has appointed Orlando Merone as the new General Manager.

In his new role, Merone will be responsible for leading Conio’s Wallet & Custody Unit, working closely with the Co-founder and CEO, Christian Miccoli, a pioneer of online banking in Italy and a former top executive at ING Direct and Che Banca!. Merone, who has successfully achieved different and challenging objectives over a 15-year career, will have the task of guiding Conio through a crucial phase of consolidation and growth, leveraging the diverse skills of the teams and identifying new opportunities for development.

Christian Miccoli, Co-Founder and CEO of Conio, stated: “The development of Web3 presents unique opportunities to reshape the financial services landscape. We intend to accept the challenge and play a leading role. This appointment strengthens our team and will help us achieve our goals. Orlando has a proven track record in rapidly conquering and sweeping fintech markets in rapidly changing environments. I am sure that together we will excel”.

Orlando Merone, Conio’s newly appointed General Manager, declared: “The digital assets and Web3 world have undergone a complex phase in the past year. However, the interest of individuals and institutions has not decreased, but rather strengthened, favouring serious players, also driven by regulation, as seen in the future enforcement of MiCAr in Europe. In this context, Conio is perfectly positioned to meet the growing demand for access to the digital assets and custody sector, which will become increasingly significant in the banking and financial services industry in the coming years.

Conio is at the forefront not only at a technical level, with a Wallet that guarantees the highest security standards, but also from a business standpoint, boasting a talented team, notable investors, and first-class partnerships. I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead this new growth and consolidation phase at Conio, together with Christian Miccoli, a pioneer of modern banking in Italy”.
