The Board of Directors

Toussaint DEGBO

Founder & CEO

Graduated from the Denis Diderot University (Jussieu Paris VII) with a Master 2 in Financial Engineering, worked until 2007 as a pricing library development consultant, for Natixis and BNP amongst others, and founded ALGOFI in 2004. "It wasn't easy to abandon a career as an IT consultant, I liked my job. Especially since at the time we had limited resources, no referencing and no sales technique. But we really felt an overpowering need to move forwards. Today, when I look at what the team that has since become ALGOFI and at the passion that drives each of its members, I am quite obviously very proud but I am also totally convinced that the best is yet to come".

Meyer MARCIANO

Graduated with a Master 2 in Mathematical Methods for Modelling in Economics from the Paris 1 University and Ecole Polytechnique in partnership with the ENSAE. Meyer started his career as a Bond Actuary for the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, before going on to work for a major financial group, firstly as an Asset and Liability Manager and then later as the manager of its Treasury Centre. In 2000 he founded and ran Teknys Consulting, an IT consulting company specialised in the market finance sector whilst also being involved, up to 2012, in financial EAS implementation and migration projects using Summit and Calypso amongst others. When ALGOFI bought out Teknys in November 2017 he became Associate Managing Director.
