Pete Klederas

Known by many as one of the world’s experts in fraud management, Pete Kledaras has a 20+ year career in risk management and credit card fraud. Following his early career as an economist at the US Treasury and International Monetary Fund, Pete enjoyed remarkable success in risk management at several leading banks, including the Bank of New York and First USA/Bank One.

His breakthrough performance in risk management opened opportunities for Pete to advise blue-chip organizations on three continents at an executive level, including Visa EU, Barclaycard UK, BNP Paribas, TD Bank, Wright Express Corp., PowerPay LLC, and a variety of private equity firms. He held the position of Chief Risk Officer at CashStar for 8 years where he developed their groundbreaking risk management platform for digital commerce.
