Ed Margolin is the CEO and Founder of FPN. He doesn't flinch at the prospect of hard work. In fact, it's his persistence and diligence that catapulted his company Fraud Protection Network to new heights.
With nearly a decade of experience in fraud prevention, recovery and resolution, Ed's desire to help investors and consumers who had been victims of fraud helped drive the early beginnings of the company. The rising rates of identity theft gave Ed the idea to develop a protection plan. He believed, this would be a viable business opportunity. And sought out to partner with major data repositories.

Eventually taking FPN's S-1 effective this past May, after an incredible five year journey. Over the course of the next several years, Ed and his team began building a suite of software services.
