The first records of CorEx date back to 15.150, when a new trading corporation was formed from the success and necessity of the second Tamerin Foundation. The Tamerin Foundation (or TTF) was previously a shipwright purchased from the last surviving commander of The Wayfarer's Sodality, Second Admiral Geoff Jackson, by businessman and entrepreneur Jerrik Tamerin. Jerrik had long sought to follow in his father's vision; to rebuild the legacy of TTF. He secured Arden Interstellar from Admiral Jackson on 15.102 and it was officially renamed on 15.106 as The Tamerin Foundation.
Shortly thereafter, Tamerin and Jackson formed a private holdings firm in a vision to expand into a mighty conglomerate of today; thus, The Tamson Group was born. From the profitability of TTF and other Tamson companies, Jackson launched into an old area of business - banking. Having founded and led the Colonial Banking Network in mid-Year 13, Jackson was well-known and trusted in the financial sector. Opening CorEx on 15.150 proved to be more difficult than expected for Geoff's business partner, causing delays in production and difficulty in their notable customer service.
On 15.173, the independent CorEx entity merged into The Tamerin Foundation in an effort to save the mighty vision of the two business partners and took on the CorEx name, which became a brand of security and trust. Shortly thereafter, the partners completed their business contracts and took a six month hiatus, during which they expanded on private holdings, corporate entities, and personal energy reserves.
CorEx reemerged on 16.066 under the leadership of the same two men the galaxy had come to know and trust. Within weeks, the business partners had the shipyards stocked with raw materials and pumping out starships for sale at markets around the galaxy. After nearly a year, Jerrik announced his retirement and left CorEx in the capable hands of his co-founder. Struggling to keep operations going by himself, Geoff promoted Aetius Morbus from Prospecting Department Head to his second-in-command.
Under the Jackson-Morbus leadership, CorEx began to see an explosion in productivity, expansion, and employment. After a short few months, CorEx was reorganized and saw the incorporation of a formal Board of Directors, still under the leadership of Geoff Jackson. With this trusted group of managers by his side, Geoff saw The CorEx Group take on the next level of corporate enterprise.
Lord Jackson partnered with known trade mogul Togan Jano and the Honnete Mercantiles Capital Group (HMCG) for the acquisition of the dwindling Aurora Technologies from the Galactic Empire in an effort to save the unique technology being developed for the last decade. Aurora Technologies officially became CorEx on 17.160 following weeks of negotiation and preparations.
Mikel von Bianchi was appointed as the new CEO of CorEx on 18.69 by the HMCG board, following Geoff Jackson succumbing to medical issues and a prolonged coma. Mr. Bianchi stated his intention to operate CorEx as a neutral financial institution on a galactic stage, hoping to rekindle lost relationships with a variety of galactic governments, as well as offer new and innovative banking services.
