Kira Wampler had previously been chief marketing officer for ridesharing app Lyft.
Julie Fergerson is a co-founder of the Merchant Risk Council.
Ethoca Ltd., which helps companies exchange card transaction data in order to combat fraud, has appointed Julie Fergerson as vice president of emerging technologies.
Fergerson had worked as vice president of emerging technologies at Debix and ClearCommerce, which she also co-founded. She also is a co-founder and board member emeritus of the Merchant Risk Council, a trade association that promotes online payment security.
At Ethoca, Fergerson will work with customers to create use cases and product requirements for Ethoca’s antifraud network. She will work to promote adoption and commercialization of Ethoca’s platform.
“When I left the e-commerce industry, the one thing that I felt was left unfinished was formalizing a way for merchants to collaborate with each other and with card issuers to get organized like criminals have been doing for years,” she says. “If I hadn’t found and joined Ethoca, this is an idea I would have developed myself.”
