Co-Founder & CEOPlaid
Zach Perret is CEO and co-founder of Plaid, a data network that powers the fintech tools millions of consumers rely on to live healthier financial lives. After learning how difficult it was to build a secure personal finance application, Zach and his co-founder started Plaid in 2013 to lower the barriers to entry into financial services by making it easier and safer to use financial data. To date, one in four people with U.S. bank accounts have used Plaid to connect to a financial services application. Prior to Plaid, Zach was a consultant for Bain and graduated with degrees in Physics and Chemistry from Duke University.
