Ganser’s decades worth of business experience has equipped him to guide the growth of the peaq ecosystem and take charge of peaq’s foray into the enterprise space. Ganser’s skills are sure to help peaq build on its existing collaborations with Bosch and other prominent industry leaders.

Before joining the Foundation, Ganser supported peaq as an advisor. Mr Ganser was one of the early investors in peaq and offered his entrepreneurial experience and knowledge to the project during its crucial years of development and testing. During the lead-up to peaq’s mainnet launch, Ganser is increasing his involvement in the project, intending to bolster peaq’s appeal to traditional businesses and enterprises via his vast network of contacts and in-depth knowledge of the Web2 corporate space.

Ganser commented:

“peaq’s vision and the impact it will create has the potential to make it one of the most influential projects for this decade and beyond. However, even the most brilliant vision takes an equally brilliant team to bring it to life — and after getting to know peaq for years, I am sure that the team behind it is more than capable of doing that. With that, it is my great pleasure to join the Foundation in an executive capacity and help the project welcome the biggest Web2 industry players into the Web3 future.The combination of Web3, IoT and AI will be a major innovation and growth driver across the world. The benefits of real world asset tokenization and generating new income sources for Enterprises and Consumers will bring Web3 at the forefront of many business innovations. I had the opportunity to get to know the world class team behind peaq for many years and it is my great pleasure to join the Foundation in an executive capacity and support innovative Enterprises in the transition from Web2 into the Web3 future.”
