Moses Ma Dr. Moses Ma - Chairman and CEO
Moses Ma is the Chairman and CEO of MMG Partners. Dr. Ma has extensive experience in aiding the world's leading exchanges and bulge-bracket investment banks to develop strategic plans regarding exchange membership, alliances, new derivative products, straight through processing, trading services, and information technology. He is also a serial entrepreneur, having been a founding partner of the Mitchell Madison Group prior to MMG Partners.
Prior to founding MMG Partners, Dr. Ma was Head of the Global Securities Practice at Mitchell Madison Group/ marchFIRST. Previously, Dr. Ma was a Vice President/Partner at A.T. Kearney. Before joining A.T. Kearney, Dr. Ma was a Consultant with McKinsey & Co. specializing in both Information Technology and in Capital Markets. His work spanned four continents as he served many Exchanges, a major pharmaceutical firm and several leading financial institutions
Prior to joining McKinsey, Dr. Ma held a third-level manager position at the NYNEX Corporation. As department head of Software, he supervised the following projects: Options Trading Station developed on Sun workstations while working with brokerage houses to perfect strategies for the trading station; Financial Distributed Databases developed on a network of Sun workstations to store the financial data; and distributed operating systems. In addition to project management, Dr. Ma was involved with marketing and selling the Options Trading Station to various brokerage houses.
Dr. Ma has also worked in both the Real-Time Systems and Parallel Processing groups at MIT, where he assisted in the implementation of a large scale multiprocessor system and wrote software to support parallel programming languages. He also studied and managed an implementation of a discrete-time event driven concurrent simulator, concentrating on different scheduling schemes. These scheduling schemes included Load Balancing and Dynamic Repartitioning of processors. In these projects, he made heavy use of artificial intelligence on Lisp Machines. Dr. Ma has also studied in depth Concurrency Control for Distributed databases. In his thesis work on parallel processing, Dr. Ma conducted extensive performance modeling of the concurrent simulator which ran on the parallel processor. The performance modeling showed that the concurrent simulator had nearly linear speed-up. Also at MIT, Dr. Ma worked for the Information and Decision Science group where he modeled and studied Optimal File Allocation for Distributed Databases, specifically for a vulnerable Distributed Network. He also developed algorithms for solving the problem in polynomial time.
Dr. Ma has also worked in the Theory of Computation group where he did crypto analysis on the Rabin and William Public Key Cryptosystems. He discovered a method to break both Public-Key schemes by using proof of the schemes equivalence to the factoring of a product of large prime numbers. This novel method showed the vulnerability of both schemes to attack.
Dr. Ma received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1979. In 1980, Dr. Ma received a M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT specializing in computer and communications security. His masters thesis is entitled "Critical Analyses on some Public-Key Cryptosystems." More recently, Dr. Ma received a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT specializing in distributed and parallel processing. His PhD thesis is entitled "Efficient Message Based System for Concurrent Simulation." He minored in Digital Signal Processing. Dr. Ma is also an Eagle Scout.
