Born and raised in Switzerland, both Alan and Fred fell in love with technology long before the Internet became mainstream, and they have been working their entire careers in mostly e-commerce and software projects.
Leaving the comforts of Switzerland for Spain in 2001, Alan co-founded and ran an online video game startup, which later expanded to Hong Kong in 2003. It grew to have 350 customer service and software development staff, one million customers in a year, and $90 million in revenue. Moreover, it received over $80 million of VC investments.
Fred, on the other hand, was thriving for many years in mergers & acquisition, and reorganization projects for a top financial organization in Switzerland. Aside from that, he also monitored outsourcing suppliers as a corporate buyer and became the youngest IT board member of a listed company at age 25.
Then in 2009, prompted by a good friend's invite and seeing an exciting new opportunity, Fred joined Alan on his second venture in Hong Kong. A year later, anticipating more growth for the enterprise, they moved their joint venture to the Philippines... and the perfect marriage of entrepreneurial experience and passion for tech led to the creation of Arcanys.
In 2018, recognizing the need for expansion, they opened their first satellite office in one of the country’s major cities and main financial hub, Makati.
