Dany Bouchedid, founder and CEO of Colotraq, has been named CEO of Aluf Holdings, a publicly traded holding company that acquires businesses focusing on the biometric, cybersecurity, blockchain and software/hardware verticals.
Aluf recently completed its acquisition of Colotraq, the sourcing advisory firm and data-center infrastructure master agency. Bouchedid replaces Teresa McWilliams, who will remain as chief financial officer and a director of the company.
Bouchedid joined Aluf’s board of directors in February and will remain a member of the board while serving as CEO. He also will stay president and CEO of Colotraq, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Aluf.
“I am honored and privileged to have been chosen by our world-class board of directors for this critical role,” Bouchedid said. “I welcome the opportunity and embrace the responsibilities of leading a publicly traded company. I am committed to moving this company onward and upward.”

“Dany is a proven leader with over 20 years of successful business leadership,” said Don Bennett, chairman of Aluf’s board. “He’s a true visionary with expertise in strategy development and execution that will undoubtedly be an asset to this organization.”
“Given Dany’s extensive knowledge in the various next-gen technologies and verticals that Aluf is focused on, I am very confident that he is the best choice to take Aluf to the next level and I am proud to be passing the torch to him,” McWilliams said.
