Bio

Larry Friedberg has spent over three decades in the data, high tech, e-commerce, services, and consumer packaged goods industries – both for startup and established companies.  Larry served as Chief Marketing Officer at Modria, the leading SaaS provider of online dispute resolution (ODR) for business and government agencies. While at Modria, Larry led the company’s entire marketing effort, including all branding, customer acquisition (ABM), social media, PR, and product marketing. Modria was acquired by Tyler Technologies (NYSE:  TYL) in June of 2017.  Before joining Modria, Larry was the Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at French Transit, Ltd., a privately held consumer packaged goods company that manufactures and sells the world’s #1 selling natural mineral salt deodorant brand, Crystal.  After Larry drove the company’s growth by 250% while tripling EBITDA, French Transit was acquired by Juggernaut Capital Partners in February of 2016.  Prior to French Transit, Larry served as Director of Trust at eBay and Head of Trust and Safety Marketing at PayPal.  He teamed with Colin Rule, the world’s leading expert in ODR, to launch online dispute resolution systems for both eBay (2005) and PayPal (2006) which processed 60mm disputes per year – 90% of which were resolved through automation.  Larry also established the company’s first ever Trust & Safety Community Watch program, which helped reduce online fraud in the Collectibles category.  Prior to eBay, Larry was an executive at Ziff-Davis for six years including three years at ZD Market Intelligence as VP Product Planning.  While there, he built the company’s first channel data product.  Larry is a certified mediator.

Most Awkward Moment

Member of an employee musical group that sang and danced to a parody version of “Age of Aquarius” in period costumes in front of thousands of people at eBay Live in Boston 2007 (I love writing parody lyrics… performing them – never mind dancing to them- not so much).
