Axioma has appointed Amaury Dauge as President. Dauge will also continue to serve as Chief Financial Officer, a position he has held since joining Axioma in June 2016.
As President, a newly created position, Dauge will focus on enhancing execution and operational management as Axioma’s growth continues to accelerate. Dauge reports to Sebastian Ceria, founder and Chief Executive Officer.
“In an environment of increasing competition and shrinking margins, investment managers must up their game by leveraging best-of-breed solutions, analytics and data, all interoperably driven by modern, cost-efficient technology,” says Ceria. “With the ongoing development of our new axiomaBlueTM ecosystem, Axioma is well positioned for continued growth in both existing and new markets. Amaury’s appointment as President will ensure that we fully optimize our internal resources in order to deliver the capabilities our clients need to achieve competitive advantage.”
Dauge says: “Over the past three years, Axioma has almost doubled its headcount and extended its global footprint in support of our expanding client base. As we continue to grow, my focus will be on making sure that Axioma has the right structure, processes and resources to deliver on our vision at scale, while maintaining the unique collaborative approach to client problem-solving that is Axioma’s hallmark.”
Before joining Axioma, Dauge was Chief Financial Officer of Euronext (EPA: ENX), the pan-European stock exchange. There, he led the carve-out of Euronext from NYSE Euronext (NYX), following its acquisition by Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which in turn led to a successful IPO of Euronext. He also previously served as Senior Vice President for Corporate Planning & Analysis at NYSE Euronext since December of 2009, playing a key role in the company’s strategic transactions with ICE in 2012 and 2013.
Dauge joined Euronext as an M&A analyst in 2001 before being named Head of M&A and later Chief of Staff to the CEO. In 2008, he was appointed Chief Operating Officer, European Equities Market and Market Data. He began his career at BNP Paribas before joining PwC and Atos Consulting. He holds an MBA from INSEAD and is a graduate of CFAF – Center for Training in Financial Analysis, and INSEEC Business School.
