Raj Mahajan was appointed CEO of Allston Trading, one of the nation’s leading proprietary electronic trading firms, in September 2012. He began his career as a Goldman Sachs analyst. In 2000, he co-founded and served as President of Kiodex, Inc., the first Software-as-a-Service risk platform designed for commodity hedgers and traders. The success of Kiodex, named 2003 “Energy Innovation of the Year” by Energy and Power Risk Management, led to its acquisition by Fortune 500 technology company SunGard in 2004. Mahajan managed the integration and took on increasingly greater responsibility, ultimately as President, Global Trading of SunGard Data Systems, Inc.
