Mark How - Chief Executive Officer

It is pretty simple…Origins Ecommerce cares a helluva lot more about your business than the big banks, big processors, big cart-commerce companies and big agencies do; Origins Ecommerce offers proven-successful guidance, provide profoundly better service, more flexibility, independence and often helping unlock a magnitude of more growth. Let’s test something together and see…
Mark How has been driving commercialization for early- and growth- stage companies successfully since the late 90’s, companies generating over half a billion dollars in new revenues. Mark spent the majority of that time leading organizations’ revenue generation as the senior executive responsible for business development, strategic partnerships, marketing, sales and corporate development and or some combination thereof.

Jeff Richards - Vice President of Development

A mechanical engineer by trade, Jeff has over a decade of experience in the payments world. Previously he worked in intellectual property, renewable energy, and maritime software development. At Origins Ecommerce, he is the technical expert on digital systems for all things payments. Jeff ensures the company’s platform works as expected by our clients.

Jeff is passionate about the environment. An adept sailor, he has sailed to Haida Gwaii and hopes to travel to the Ningaloo Reef. When he is not being at one with nature or catching a wave, you can find Jeff enjoying time with his kids.

Greg Connolly - Vice President of Information Technology

Greg’s extensive IT experience allows him to seamlessly finesse Origins Ecommerce systems design, production deployment, and infrastructure management. He is well-versed in mission-critical environments with a focus on uptime, and one of his favorite projects — if you speak Robot — entailed the reengineering of a 60,000-socket distributed grid AIX Chip design environment scaled to a 140 user Redhat distributed grid.

Greg loves a good adventure. He once conquered an 80-kilometer whitewater rafting trip from Ashcroft to Lytton relying solely on paddle-power. When Greg isn’t working or adventuring, he spends time with his family and keeps up-to-date with the latest NHL scores. He also enjoys coaching and playing hockey with his kids.

Michael Paolasini - Vice President of Compliance

Michael’s 16 plus years of AML and Compliance experience started with a career at the Chicago Stock Exchange where he performed market surveillance and regulation. He then went on to work for Harbor Capital Advisors, ABN-AMRO, American Express and finally Capital One for 7 years, before joining Origins Ecommerce. While at these companies Michael was responsible for the successful development and implementation of enterprise-wide AML/FIU programs, drafting policies and procedures, and working with regulators such as the OCC and SEC.

In his spare time Michael is an avid outdoorsman, he enjoys snowboarding/skiing, mountain biking, hunting, fishing and running. He even ran his first full marathon on his 30th birthday in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, combining his love of sports and the outdoors.
