“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” –Ayn Rand

Joan Ziegler is the CEO and Co-founder of FiTeq.  As former CEO and Co-founder of PrivaSys, Joan has been pioneering concepts and principles which are now used ubiquitously in today’s payments landscape.  The notions of “tokenization in payments”, “dynamic authentication/data”, “powered cards”, and “multiple accounts on a single card” have all spawned from an IP portfolio Joan has been building and developing since 1999.  Refined and forged in in the fires of the Fintech landscape, Joan’s vison is now realized in FiTeq’s frictionless, secure, versatile, immediate, future-proof, profitable, end-to-end payment solution.

No stranger to the electronics and tech industry, Joan previously managed development studios at both Mindscape and HiTech Expressions; leveraging best-of-breed brands such as Disney, Paramount, and Warner Brothers.  Joan’s breadth of involvement with these iconic brands include the entertainment business, video game industry, and children’s educational software.  Successfully working in diverse fields with all-star names has equipped Joan to now wage war on fraudsters, hackers, and criminals in the world of payments. 

A graduate of Florida Atlantic University with a Masters from Florida State, Joan’s diverse background brings a practical, mindful and effective solution to payment fraud.
