Meet the Board

Our Board is composed of leaders with extensive expertise in diverse areas, including technology, risk-management, education, and business management. Together they are responsible for ensuring atonra's strategic vision, risk-management processes and make sure that operational activities are aligned to support and strengthen our company on an ongoing basis.

They meet at least once every quarter. And it’s partly thanks to them that we remain a step ahead of the game and can help shape a brighter future.
