Ohad began his fraud prevention and payments adventure when he established and headed FraudSciences’ fraud analysis and operations team. This operation ran thousands of transactions from risky verticals, staying at under 0.1% of bad approvals and a low rate of declined transactions.
When the company was acquired by PayPal January 2008 for $169M, Ohad worked to transform the analysis team into a group of researchers. He then headed the acquired company’s business solutions group responsible for over $15M in profit optimization and loss savings including the launch of several new payment products globally.
Ohad recently headed PayPal’s New Ventures Risk Management team, in charge of PayPal’s expansion to new markets including gaming, software, mobile payments and more and is also leading PayPal’s risk management engagement with Facebook, Zynga and other industry leaders.
