Konevsky was the former Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Legal Officer at tZERO. In his new role as EVP and Chief Legal and Corporate Affairs Officer, he will be responsible for a range of strategic, corporate, legal, regulatory, and other matters.

He has played a critical role in tZERO’s strategy and operations, including during the leadership transition.
