OV Loop was founded by Will Graylin, a serial entrepreneur on his 6th startup. His deep background in electrical engineering, computer science and psychoacoustics (how humans perceive sound) led him to create OV Loop. Joining him in 2018 are: Chief Innovation Product Officer, Dennis Sidi (repeat entrepreneur, founder of MYNE/IDIS), and Chief Payments Officer, Doug Yeager (payment entrepreneur, founder of SimplyTapp) and their respective teams, to jointly pursue the vision of OV Loop.
Prior to founding OV Loop, Will was CEO of LoopPay, acquired by Samsung, where he then became Global Co-GM of Samsung Pay. Will was previously founder and CEO of ROAM Data (sold to Ingenico), WAY Systems (sold to Verifone), and EntitleNet (sold to BEA/Oracle). After 6 years of serving in the Navy as a Lt.
