BIOGRAPHY

Greg Stamatis is president and co-founder of Ridgeland-based SecureBuy LLC, whose start-up began with the formation of its parent company, SignatureLink, in 2005. With a mission of providing leading-edge applications and services for the secure completion of valid commercial transactions, the company employs teams of people in five states.

Already a veteran of the high-tech industry when he co-founded SignatureLink, Stamatis began his career in 1978 at Drake Willock, the company that invented the portable dialysis machine. He worked his way into management there, and by 1988 Stamatis had become Vice President of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs of Hyperion Inc., an automated laboratory instrumentation OEM manufacturer.

While at Hyperion, Stamatis caught the attention of biotech start-up Micro Typing Systems, Inc. (MTS), and he joined that team in 1991. Under his watch, MTS became a multi-million-dollar company and a North American leader in blood banking reagents by 2002 and was subsequently acquired by SC Johnson Company subsidiary Ortho Diagnostics.

Along with his duties as COO, Stamatis has also served as Director of SignatureLink. The company’s patented biometric wet-signature-equivalent technology and patent-pending chargeback management solutions, along with its cloud-based Cybercrime Defender Platform via exclusive partnership with ThreatMetrix™, make SignatureLink SecureBuy™ a complete ESIGN- and UETA-compliant online payment fraud prevention solution. Stamatis has been integral in the development of the SecureBuy™ Suite, including SignatureLink CNPS™, the virtual electronic signature pad, and SignatureLink TransExam™ Chargeback Management System.
