Howard Tischler is the founder and CEO of EverSafe, a technology company focused on enhanced financial monitoring and the prevention of fraud and identity theft in later life. A tool for seniors and the growing number of financial caregivers nationwide, EverSafe was founded after Howard’s mother was defrauded and his research revealed no viable solution to this widespread problem.

His career includes the founding of several companies, including Intelus Corporation (electronic medical records), Credit Online (an automotive financial exchange) and Enfocel (financial services lead generation). He has held senior executive positions at SunGard Data, First American Financial and First Advantage Corporation. He also served as the Lead Director of DealerTrack Technologies from the time of the company’s merger with Credit Online in 2003 through its IPO in 2005 until its sale to Cox Automotive in 2015.
In 2016, Howard was named by AARP Magazine as one of twenty-five people who bust age-old myths for his work in preventing elder financial exploitation. He has also been cited by the President’s Council on Science and Technology on “How Technology Can Protect Older Adults’ Economic Security” as well as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s recommendations on how financial institutions can prevent elder fraud.
