Starting June 2015, Dominique Cerutti spent five years as Chief Executive Officer of the Altran group. He was also Chairman of the Altran Board from June 2015 to April 2020, until the acquisition of the company by Capgemini. Under his leadership, Altran grew from 20,000 to more than 50,000 engineers worldwide, with revenues up to 3.2bn euros. He transformed the company by adapting the organization, promoting new business models and driving major acquisitions. A fervent advocate of the acquisition by Capgemini, he worked hand in hand with the Group to make the integration a success and stepped down at the end of 2020.

He led the strategic repositioning of Euronext as a premier pan-European financing center. He and his team have been deeply involved with work on EU financial markets regulation, promoting transparency and increased investors protections within the EU financial markets.
He was previously President and Deputy CEO, and a board member of the New-York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the world’s leading exchange Group.
