About Aaron

Aaron Lipeles is a 20-year veteran of Wall Street, heading the Luxoft Markets division of the global IT service provider, Luxoft. Prior to joining Luxoft, Aaron led the Mortgage Technology and Fixed Income Flow Risk Technology teams as a Managing Director for UBS Investment Bank. His previous roles include leading teams and developing software for Bloomberg and the mortgage analytics firm Chasen Enterprises.

Aaron has built, owned, and enhanced the core systems used to measure and manage the risk and profits on trillions of dollars of assets and derivatives. He has successfully led teams through periods of both aggressive expansion and devastating crisis.

Aaron’s management style centers on openness and high standards. He emphasizes the communication of both good and bad news and strong direct feedback. He believes that all team members should be held to the highest standards of professionalism and technical excellence, but builds a culture of responsibility rather than blame, cultivating a regard for growth and progress over perfection. He expects his managers to operate as a team, eliminate silos, and take joint responsibility for individual team successes and failures.

Having graduated Tufts University in 1992 with a B.A. in philosophy, Aaron entered the philosophy Ph.D. program at the CUNY Graduate Center, but left after completing his M.A. to pursue a career in financial services technology.

Aaron is a devoted father. He loves to cook and ride his bicycle (but not at the same time).
