William Severin, Chief Technology Officer


A serial entrepreneur, with nearly three decades of software development experience, Will built data warehouses and enterprise software for global financial organizations, small businesses, government and military installations. While a Tech Fellow at Goldman Sachs, he improved systems to manage and reduce risk and the software development testing process. At Goldman, he worked on production access control and release automation, as well as the system for securities post-trade execution. To this day, teams throughout the firm use the components and micro-services he created.

Will has also been involved in developing a real-time tracking system capable of such diverse tasks as preventing crimes and performing campaign management based on web click-stream analysis. A bit less known, but equally impressive, were his efforts to elevate Swiss data secrecy.
