Dan Yerushalmi has been named CEO of AU10TIX, replacing former chief executive Carey O’Connor Kolaja.
Yerushalmi previously served as the Chief Client and Revenue Officer for Check Point Software Technologies. He also spent almost five years with Bank Leumi, serving in an executive vice president position from March of 2013 to October of 2017. But the bulk of his career was spent at Amdocs, where he started as a Regional Vice President and Client Business Executive in 1993 and rose through the ranks to become President of Advertizing and Media for EMEA in the last several years of his two-decade term with the company.
Among other professional achievements, Yerushalmi was named one of the 100 most influential CIOs by CIO Magazine in 2016.
In a statement, AU10TIX Chairman Ron Atzmon thanked O’Connor Kolaja for her contribution to the company, which she headed as CEO from October of 2020 until September of last year, having initially joined AU10TIX as President and COO in May of 2019.
As for Yerushalmi, Atzmon enthused that his “experience and extensive knowledge in strategy, operations and sales make him the right person for the company as we expand activity and increase personnel globally.”
For his part, Yerushalmi praised AU10TIX for “its level of full-process automation and the richness of its fraud and risk output detection.” The company offers a number of anti-fraud solutions including a biometric identity verification system, and credited itself with saving clients over $2 billion in the first months of 2022.
“Being a global player with clients on five continents brings massive opportunity for continued growth and inspires me to take AU10TIX to the next level,” Yerushalmi said.
