Addepar Hires BlackRock Veteran Ruchir Swarup as CTO

Ruchir Swarup, who worked at BlackRock for 19 years, will be Addepar's first full-time CTO since co-founder Jason Mirra left in 2014.

A 19-year BlackRock veteran has joined wealth management technology platform provider Addepar as its Chief Technology Officer.

Addepar announced that Ruchir Swarup, who left a managing director role at the giant asset manager, has joined the firm to oversee all its technology teams. These include data engineering, as well as platform and product engineering, according to the statement.

Swarup will oversee all technology efforts for the rapidly growing platform, its expanding ecosystem of API-based third-party partnerships and integration of its new marketplace of product providers.

Addepar has not had a standalone CTO since the departure of its co-founder Jason Mirra in 2014. Eric Poirer, who joined Addepar in 2013, has served as both CEO and CTO, with all the firm's technology teams reporting to him.

At BlackRock, Swarup was responsible for strategy, design, and development of Post Trade capabilities of the firm’s Aladdin platform.

“Ruchir is a brilliant technologist and visionary leader with outlier talents in building innovative, scalable and secure technology products and platforms in financial services,” said Poirier.
