On Wednesday, Paris-based crypto security firm Ledger, best known for its hardware wallets, named President Pascal Gauthier as its new CEO. He replaced Eric Larchevêque, who will now serve as executive chairman of the board. “I have come to the realization that I was spending all my time on day-to-day execution at the expense of critical high level strategic thinking,” Larchevêque wrote in a letter announcing the changes. “I have therefore decided, with the support of the Board, to move to a new role as Executive Chairman. In this role I’ll be able to properly focus on strategy and vision, while also overseeing regulator and government outreach, partnerships, customers, broader business relationships and technology thought leadership.”
