Title: Senior Director of Global Strategy/Growth & Harvard University Employees Credit Union Board Member

In his current role as the Senior Director of Global Corporate Strategy at PayPal, Shahar leverages his 15 years of experience at the intersection of financial services, payments, and technology to shape the company’s vision of democratizing financial services. He is a firm believer that technology can empower people with better financial products at lower costs to make lives easier and more convenient. 

Shahar is privileged to serve on the Board of Directors of the Harvard University Employees Credit Union (HUECU) and is passionate about empowering people to improve their financial health. In partnership with HUECU, he co-founded a popular personal finance class at Harvard University in 2011 that has helped hundreds of undergraduates improve their personal finances. 

Shahar is a respected financial services industry thought-leader and sought-after public speaker. He has been invited to keynote at CUNA’s CEO Roundtable and NWCUA’s MAXX Conference as well as the U.S. Conference of Mayors and Paythink’s Payments Conference. His engagements are designed to help executives and board members demystify the driving forces in payments and provoke innovative thinking on how to reframe them as opportunities instead of threats.

As a contributing personal finance columnist for Forbes, he regularly shares financial advice with thousands of readers.  

As an experienced educator, he is also skilled at simplifying the complex, sometimes intimidating world of personal finance and guiding students and employees on the path to financial wellness. Shahar has worked with students at The Wharton School and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, resident physicians at Mount Sinai Hospital, and employees at companies like Debevoise & Plimpton and DoorDash, to improve their financial health.  

Shahar is a proud alumnus of Cornell University and Harvard Business School, a slightly less proud airline/hotel point junkie as well as a Kilimanjaro summiter, and Taco Bell and behavioral econ aficionado.
