OUR TEAM OF BLOCKHEADS
Directors and Partners
The Ligo Team
The five directors at Ligo have been hard at work preparing the company to go public. While they may have started the company, they could not continute without the partnership of some brilliant help. We are proud to introduce you to our Ligo league!
DAVID COOPER, B.SC.
DIRECTOR, CHIEF SOFTWARE ENGINEER
David is a renaissance man when it comes to technology, with expertise in everything from embedded applications to multi-tier distributed client-server systems. This isn't his first entrepreneurial rodeo: this Albertan lives and breathes both tech and business.
MICHAEL FOX, M.Sc.
DIRECTOR, LEAD MATHEMAGICIAN
Michael started in math-physics but then became a probabilist (what are the odds!). He specializes in probability, statistics, survey methods, discrete math, graph theory and data analysis. In his spare time, he plays with game theory. He's super fun like that.
DIRECTOR, LEAD DEVELOPER
Vivian is the fastest coder in the world wild west, had her (first) 10,000 hours of coding practice done by age 16, and knows more tech languages than anyone we know. She can turn any behemoth problem into artful code.
DIRECTOR, LEAD TECHNICAL ARCHITECT
Arek brings over twenty-five years of experience in IT development and architecture. His love of performance tuning goes beyond server environments: the only time this guy gets up early is when he's revving his car at the race track.
Paul brings a wealth of experience to our team in the areas of compliance, data collection and integration, and security. Our favourite Yorkshireman fell in love with a Canadian girl 30 years ago and has never looked back.
RUTH BANKEY, PhD
LEAD RESEARCH AND ETHICS OFFICER
Ruth is a researcher and ethicist focusing on how datasets, projects and organizations can be analyzed in order to develop ethical and practical tools and strategies. She comes by her creative solutions honestly: she's an avid collector and maker of art.
TAX COMPLIANCE AND ARCHITECTURE
Richard brings expertise in the design and development of trading systems for financial markets, in particular, foreign exchange markets. Richard could talk about money and taxes and trading all day. We're happy he has an outlet for it now.
ANU PINNAMANENI, B.Com, PMP
LEAD PROJECT MANAGER AND SOLUTIONS DELIVERY
Anu specializes in managing and delivering complex custom software solutions and systems integration projects for both public and private sectors. When she's not keeping us all in line, she participates in hackathons whenever she can.
GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS
With 20+ years experience on some of the largest Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Canada, our tall Dutchman is also a SAS god, and world Scrabble champion. When he's not getting a triple-triple, he's telling you where to go AND how to get there.
Samantha started off with English and French (vive le Canada!) and later added Japanese, Spanish, Welsh, Cree, and German. She loves both Qs and As and can make the most difficult things sound simple. Send your Ligo Qs to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
