DATE :  Tuesday, May 21, 2013   ABSTRACT : 
Innovation in payments has accelerated more in the last 5 years than in the past 50, and this disruption is just beginning.  People expect technology to make everything from buying concert tickets, to parking, to grabbing a coffee — faster, more intuitive and more convenient. Companies that fail to evolve the way they let their customers discover, engage and transact with their business, will quickly fall behind. PayPal is in the unique position to be at the center of how companies and their customers connect – facilitating interactions and solving real problems for people, merchants and developers. In this session, David Marcus will share his vision for the future of commerce, as well as what it will take to be successful in this highly competitive space.

David Marcus, President of PayPal

David Marcus is president of PayPal, where he has overall responsibility for establishing PayPal as the leading global payment service. He has more than 15 years of mobile and telecommunications experience worldwide. He joined PayPal in 2011 in the company’s acquisition of Zong, a leading provider of payments through mobile carrier billing. Under David’s leadership as founder and CEO, Zong developed relationships with more than 250 carriers and more than 1,000 online merchants. Prior to Zong, he started Echovox in Europe, a mobile media monetization company that later formed the foundation for Zong. A native of France, David grew up in Paris and Geneva. At 23, he started his first company, GTN, which became one of the top three alternative carriers in Switzerland and was acquired by World Access. David first began learning how to become a technology entrepreneur at age 8, when he taught himself how to code on a PC.
