Axelrod Named CEO at Cogency

Jeffrey Axelrod, the founding CTO of the funds of hedge funds software provider, has been named CEO

Cogency Software, a provider of accounting and operational software for funds of hedge funds, named Jeffrey Axelrod CEO. According to Axelrod, the founding CTO of the company, one challenge Cogency's clients face is the enormous growth in many funds.

Before founding Cogency in 2002, Axelrod was VP of development at TenFold Corp.
