Martin Duvander, Chief Executive Officer (founder) Mr. Duvander spent nearly a decade in the financial world, starting as a currency trader in Denmark and then transitioned to Merrill Lynch’s London operations where he worked back office operations: settlements, payments and client disputes. But working in the world’s largest banking city, Mr. Duvander was again lured by the frenetic pace of currency trading. He joined D.I.C. London to become a trader and then to Habibson’s Bank where he became head of their Treasury Department and managed trading and clearinghouse operations. Doing $100 million transactions wasn’t uncommon. After leaving the financial world, Mr. Duvander spent a decade in the software industry, co- founding a cloud services company that allowed retailers, restaurants and large European enterprises to automate the time management of their hourly workforces. He created the software architecture, and managed the programming design and development phases that ultimately yielded a polished online service that used sophisticated algorithms to let managers and employees juggle work shifts (the commodity of time increments) on the fly essentially, a trading platform for work shifts. In addition to managing programming teams in Europe and India, Mr. Duvander also drove marketing and sales. Customers using the service were able to do in 2 – 5 seconds what once took hours and the service was scalable from dozens of employees to thousands. “Always think outside the box…it is less crowded”
