The 30-Sec Version

First and foremost, I serve as the CEO of FlexPay, located in Montreal, Canada. I'm also the founder or co-founder of more than a dozen other successful e-commerce and technology businesses, which have serviced millions of consumer customers—across 4 continents—and created over 1,000 jobs to date. I'm also a developer of proprietary software, owner of several tech patents, and advisor to multiple startups. I love working with, coaching, and mentoring like-minded entrepreneurs.

About FlexPay

FlexPay uses cutting-edge Machine Learning and is the ONLY tool in the world that trains its ML on billions of transactions provided directly by issuing banks.

Declines are bad for customers, bad for the bank, bad for the card networks and bad for business owners like you who’ve worked so hard to find product-market fit, get your customer’s attention, optimize your sales funnel, earn a massive vote of confidence from your customer, only to lose the sale to an inefficient, antiquated, legacy system at the issuers.
