Tell us about yourself.
I started-up companies and have held executive positions with large corporations such as Comverse, Dassault, and more for the last 25 years.
Before founding nSure.ai, a payment fraud prevention company, I founded an e-commerce company and bootstrapped it into a large consumer internet business operating in Dallas, Chicago, and Denver.
My key strength is the ability to define a vision and then create and execute a meticulous plan for its fulfillment. I’m a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO). A resident of Tel Aviv, I enjoy biking, cooking (drinking wine..), and spending time with my wife and three sons.
