Today we are thrilled to announce the addition of Osama Bedier to WePay’s board of directors. Considering his prior experience, Osama is the perfect fit to help us accelerate development of WePay’s API for platforms.
Osama has worked on a number of the past decade’s most successful payments products. He’s one of the few payments executives to have built category-defining products from scratch, including PayPal Checkout, PayPal’s Adaptive Payments, PayPal’s first mobile offerings, and Google Wallet.
At PayPal, Osama was Vice President of Platform, Mobile and New Ventures. His responsibilities included overseeing PayPal’s global payments platform. After moving to Google, he was Vice President of Wallet & Payments.
We can’t wait to leverage Osama’s experience in our goal to build the world’s next great payment infrastructure for platforms. As WePay expands internationally, pioneers new systems of risk analysis, and helps platforms further reduce payment friction, Osama will be a crucial part of the WePay team.
