Todd Mera

Todd Mera, Co-Founder

AwardWallet started with a need. In 2004 Todd Mera had been traveling extensively for work and belonged to many reward programs. He figured there had to be a better way to track his miles than logging into each award program site separately and manually maintaining a consolidated statement on a spreadsheet. Todd’s insight sparked the idea for AwardWallet, which Todd and co-founder, Alexi Vereschaga, launched in 2004. Todd has been in Information Technology for 18 years and has worked in Asia, Europe and the USA on behalf of major corporate clients such as Nissan, Adidas, Merrill Lynch, KMPG, Siemens, Honeywell, Boeing, Microsoft, Delta Airlines and Expedia. Prior to starting AwardWallet, Todd worked for enterprise IT Services company, Aelita, where he was a practice leader for Windows and Messaging. Todd received his B.S. in Biochemistry from Western Washington University. Todd enjoys winemaking, technology and travel.
