Thierry Fahmy is the founder and CEO of Addinsoft, editor of the XLSTAT software for statistics and data analysis.
He started developing XLSTAT in 1993 while being a Master student at AgroParisTech in France and at UC Berkeley in California. He continued the development during his PhD in Statistics. After learning a lot about the IT world while working as a data mining consultant at IBM, and incepting several entrepreneurial projects, he started dedicating all his time to XLSTAT in 2002.
The main will of Thierry was to develop a statistical software that makes statistics tangible for a wider public, including users who do not necessarily have strong mathematical or programming backgrouds.
His challenge has been won as today XLSTAT has more than 50,000 corporate and academic users from numerous fields around the world. Several business campuses have chosen to use XLSTAT in their programs to illustrate statistical courses.
