CEO & Co-Founder

Plaid

Zach Perret is CEO and co-founder of Plaid, the technology platform that connects financial applications and users' bank accounts. After learning how difficult it was to build a secure personal finance application, Zach and his co-founder started Plaid in 2012 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.
