Stephen Ferrando, Director of Business Development at KoreConX, was appointed to the board of directors at Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA).
Steve has over 35 years of experience working with firms ranging from small startups to large international investment banks, with the majority of that time being spent on traditional financial services as well as alternative finance. He joined KoreConX as the Director of Business Development and head of the New York office in 2018 and has been instrumental in growing the East Coast presence.
The CfPA is a nonprofit trade group that was established shortly after the signing of the Jumpstart Our Business Startup Act (JOBS Act) in 2012. The CfPA is dedicated to representing the crowdfunding industry and supporting the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) during the rulemaking period while providing the industry with education and the tools necessary to cultivate a balanced and healthy ecosystem that will accelerate the capital formation and ensure investor protection.
“Having one of our key members of our team such as Stephen being appointed to such an important role only reassures us that we made the right decision when we asked Stephen to join the KoreTeam,” said Oscar Jofre, co-founder and CEO at KoreConX. “Stephen is a pioneer in the crowdfunding industry, and we are sure he will be very valuable to CfPA.”
“I’m honored and excited about my role in the crowdfunding space. This year, we are going to see big transformations in the industry. Entities such as CfPA and KoreConX that are equipped to deal with the changes on the private capital markets are indispensable,” said Stephen Ferrando. “We have some great times coming ahead.”
