Didier Bouillard serves as CEO of Adenza, following the merger of the Calypso and AxiomSL in July 2021. He joined Calypso as CEO in April 2018 and is based in London.
Prior to Calypso, Didier served as CEO of Ullink, a global provider of connectivity and trading services, from early 2015. The primary objective of the assignment was to merge NYFIX, acquired by Ullink in late 2014, and transition the overall group from a founder-led business into a private equity-owned business. After several years of steady growth of revenues and profits, Ullink was successfully sold to Nordic Capital-backed Itiviti. Prior to Ullink, Didier was an Executive Vice President at SunGard Financial Systems (now part of FIS) and operated a substantial part of the Capital Markets and Electronic Trading division, playing a key role in global distribution.
Since the start of his career in the 1990’s, Didier has provided his leadership to several successful entrepreneurial ventures, including as Partner for Ubitrade, Managing Director for Capital Fund Management, and CEO for Fermat, gaining extensive knowledge of the capital markets and banking industry as well as true international exposure.
Didier graduated from Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in 1988.
