I’m Greg Pierson, a serial entrepreneur, thought leader, industry speaker, and self-proclaimed executive napkin artist. I graduated from Oregon State University in 1989 with Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Administration and Economics. While attending the university, I was a member of the jazz band “The Water Polo Team.”
After college, I worked for Accenture, a global management consulting company. There I helped deploy point of sale systems to big name companies like Bridgestone/Firestone and Nordstrom. I also helped deploy a material requirements planning system for Lands’ End. After gaining experience in eCommerce and real-time business systems, my entrepreneurial spirit led me to start my first company. My first venture was ieLogic, a company that engaged in online community technology within the online gaming market. In June 2004, I took on a new venture as the Founder and CEO of iovation Inc. in Portland, Oregon.
With over 20 years of experience in building real-time business systems, I wanted to develop new fraud management services to protect businesses. I frequently share my knowledge and expertise as a speaker at industry trade shows around the globe. My career has given me the opportunities to develop diverse skills including cloud computing, data analysis, product development, go-to-market strategy, management consulting, and others.I am committed to helping make the Internet a safer place for individuals to conduct business and interact with each other
