Feedzai Announces Expansion in Asia With Newly Appointed Head of APAC and Office in Hong Kong


HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feedzai announced today that it is expanding its global reach with a
physical office being opened in Hong Kong. This is the company’s first
office in the APAC region, following strong sales growth in the region.
After raising a Series C funding round of $50 million in October, and
expanding total employee count to nearly 300 in 2017, Feedzai’s Hong
Kong office will serve as a launchpad for continued growth in the APAC

The company has appointed Feedzai and industry veteran Steve Liu as Head
of APAC. Mr. Liu will oversee the Hong Kong office and the eventual
expansion of new offices in Singapore and Sydney, Australia, and other
key APAC cities. Mr. Liu has more than 20 years of technology experience
directing teams in operations and delivery, and since joining Feedzai in
2015 has helped to build Feedzai’s global delivery and pre-sales

“We are committed to making banking and commerce systems safe worldwide,
freeing our business customers to securely transact with their consumers
anywhere and anytime. With Steve at the helm in Hong Kong and his local
market expertise, we are prepared to make APAC a focal point of our
growth strategy for the years to come,” said Nuno Sebastiao, Feedzai
co-founder and CEO. “As we gain more traction in APAC and elsewhere, you
can bet that 2018 will be another transformational year for Feedzai.”

Feedzai was recently named on the Forbes Fintech 50 global list for
2018, and is a founding sponsor of the Money20/20 Asia show in
Singapore, March 13-15, where Feedzai CEO Nuno Sebastiao is giving a
keynote presentation on the main stage. Additionally, Feedzai has
partnered with Money20/20 and Space for Humanity to give one attendee
the chance to go to space as part of a Space for Humanity mission as
early as December 2018.

“Expanding our brand further in APAC will be the next major source of
growth at Feedzai, especially since we already have great customers in
the region and strong support to build our operations here,” said Steve
Liu, Feedzai’s newly appointed Head of APAC. “Now, no matter what time
zone, there’s a Feedzai office and team dedicated to supporting all of
our current and future customers.”

Feedzai has clients across the APAC region, including companies
headquartered from the Philippines to Australia, as well as some of the
most recognized brands in the region. Feedzai is headquartered in
Silicon Valley and has offices in New York, Atlanta, Lisbon, Porto,
Coimbra, London, and now Hong Kong, as well as sales and delivery teams
providing support teams throughout the world.
