Building on the Edison Award recognition for Forter’s Loyalty Program Protection product, we’re pleased to announce that Michael Reitblat, our CEO and Co-Founder has been recognized as part of Financial Technology Report’s list of Top 50 Financial Technology CEO for 2020. We are so honored and excited that Michael has been named alongside so many prestigious leaders in the fintech industry. 

Out of thousands of CEOs from companies spanning the globe, only a select few were invited to participate in this year’s nomination process. Through their innovative spirit, creative thinking, and their commitment to leadership, these executives have helped to shape the future of the fintech industry.

At Forter, Michael has been instrumental in the creation of the leading fraud prevention solution for e-commerce businesses which has been adopted by some of the world’s leading companies including Nordstrom, Priceline, and Hugo Boss. Prior to founding Forter, Michael led product and business development at multiple successful Israeli startups, including Pango, Kontera (acquired by Singtel), Fraud Sciences (acquired by PayPal) and Imperva NASDAQ: IMPV. Michael’s fascination with online fraud began following an “experimentation with the Internet” phase as a teenager and an even more successful period of service as an intelligence officer in the Israeli Cyber Command. Michael also serves as a board member and investor and several cutting-edge technology companies in AI, Robotics and Exascale Computing. 

Michael brings a true passion for excellence in the products and solutions that Forter continues to offer its growing customer base. He encourages innovation and collaboration across Forter’s global offices to continue to push the envelope with Forter’s technology and commitment to serving our customers. Michael continues to drive Forter’s vision of disrupting the traditional model of online fraud prevention by shifting fraud prevention to being a driver of growth, encouraging sales, and improving customer experience.

On behalf of the entire Forter team, congratulations Michael!
