Desmond Leong

CEO

About Desmond Leong

Desmond’s obsession with community and communication structures started when he tried to teach people how to trade. After trying out every application out there, he figured the only way to do it was to build one himself. Drawing from his experience conducting over 300 webinars and speaking to over 80,000 traders (via webinars and seminars), he started building Genesiv using the profits he generated from his award-winning investment research firm.

His unique advantage comes from his experience building a business and working with the largest bizdev, marketing and compliance departments – where he learnt that a community platform has to strike a balance between what the users want and what the businesses, creators and entrepreneurs want.

Apart from that, Desmond lives a simple life with his wife and cat. He spends most of his time cafe hopping, spin cycling with his wife and watching soccer (without his wife).

Why Homelander? (Hover over pic to reveal superhero persona)
“I’m a big fan of homelander because deep down, just like him -I have good intentions. Just that because of the radical way I think, people sometimes misinterpret my actions haha. But honestly, I’m 100% for my team, my partners and the people.”

Andrew Leong

COO

About Andrew Leong

Andrew holds a bachelors in Information Systems. He brings balance to the dynamic brother tag team. If Desmond is the visionary, then Andrew is the integrator. He works tirelessly in ensuring the company is ticking like clockwork – with his focus on IT, operations, compliance, finance and legal.

In his free time, Andrew is often on his next food hunt. His love for food and wine has brought him to many countries in search for the best food (pre-covid).

Why Spiderman?
“I like Spiderman because he likes to work behind the scenes in ensuring that everything is smooth flowing. The truth is, not everyone wants the limelight. I prefer to ensure things are ticking like clockwork while Desmond works tirelessly in building the company.”

Rob Gudipudi

About Rob

Rob has over 15 years of experience as a full-stack developer. He previously worked at IBM, Mahindra Satyam, GAP and PEGA Systems. He has been working with Desmond for over 5 years and is instrumental in both the planning and building of the Genesiv product.

At IBM, he was instrumental in large global scale ERP implementation for pharmaceutical giants such as Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Merck. At Manhindra Satyam, he rose up the ranks quickly to lead a multi faceted 80 member team to support and roll out telecom software.

In his free time, Rob enjoys spending time with his family, cooking for them and singing, although he admits not everyone enjoys his singing.

Why Batman?
“I resonate with Batman’s purpose in finding creative ways in getting things done. Often, the brain is his superpower and I like to tell my team that you might have super computers, but they won’t be able to do much if you don’t harness the true power of your brain to solve problems especially in coding and development.”
