Fraud detection company DataVisor has announced two new appointments in its leadership team. Steve Knopf has been named Vice President of Product and Jamshed Patel has been appointed Vice President of Solution Engineering.
“I am thrilled to welcome both Steve and Jamshed to our executive team,” said DataVisor founder and CEO Yinglian Xie. “They bring to DataVisor a wealth of unparalleled experience as product leaders in SaaS based technology solutions along with fraud and risk expertise, and their hands-on experience will be invaluable in shaping our product strategy and roadmap as we advance our efforts to deliver even more powerful and comprehensive fraud and risk solutions to market.”
Mr. Knopf has more than 20 years of experience as a leader of trust and safety teams, including the last five years at online marketplace LetGo. In his new role at DataVisor, he will oversee the product team, enabling product innovation and expanding its portfolio of solutions.
“DataVisor leads the way for AI-powered fraud detection. Since I was introduced to the platform during my time at LetGo, I’ve been an enthusiastic proponent of its powerful fraud detection and prevention capabilities to protect our organization from even the most advanced fraud attacks,” said Mr. Knopf. “I’m eager to work with our incredible team of data scientists and engineers to evolve and advance our product roadmap, so we can continue to deliver cutting-edge fraud prevention solutions to market.”
Mr. Patel is an experienced product strategy and business development executive, who most recently served as head of product development for the Payroll and Workforce Management division of human capital management software company Workday. His new role will include supporting technical innovation and helping to provide solutions that address the needs of global customers.
“I’m passionate about expanding DataVisor’s business by creating new opportunities through strategic partnerships and technical innovation,” Patel said. “What really excited me about DataVisor was the company’s focus on innovation and the vision to provide the next-gen AI-powered platform for protecting the user and the enterprise account lifecycle. As businesses increasingly turn to online channels, fraud protection will be especially critical — organizations won’t be able to rely on traditional solutions. As our solution is cloud-native, we can innovate and evolve rapidly — ahead of our competitors — and deliver the mission-critical fraud and risk solutions our customers need.”
