Digital asset protection firm Coincover has appointed Vikki Sly as chief people officer.

With a strong background in designing and implementing successful internal cultures, Sly will play an integral role in building a company culture that prioritises its people, according to the Cardiff company.

Sly has held several senior leadership roles, including VP of people at Bitrise, where she led the company’s people operations and talent acquisition efforts. Prior to that, she served as the chief people officer at robotic process automation firm Blue Prism. 

She also spent several years as the vice president of talent development at Qlik, as well as household names Barclaycard and Vodafone.

“We’re seeing a lot of behaviours in the market where companies have grown aggressively and failed to address the challenge of scale as they’ve grown. They are now going through an unfortunate situation where people are being laid off,” said Sly. 

“I am committed to building a company culture that pays attention to the current organisation and positively impacts the existing infrastructure.” 

Sly will oversee the development of the company’s internal structure, collaboration processes, and learning opportunities. She will work closely with the executive team to ensure that Coincover’s employees are empowered to deliver the highest level of service to its customers.

David Janczewski, CEO of Coincover, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Vikki to our team. Her extensive experience and passion for building and shaping people-centred cultures will be instrumental in helping us achieve our mission to make cryptocurrency accessible and secure for everyone.”
