To many, Amos Taman is an urban hero. He's the genius behind the technology that allows you to pay for your cab with a credit card in major cities such as New York, Philadelphia and Chicago.
Amos Taman moved to the United States from Israel in the 1980s looking for a brand new start in the land of opportunity. An electrical engineer trained at Tel Aviv University, Amos began servicing taxi cabs in New York City. 20 years later he's the CEO of Veriphone Transportation Systems, the industry leader in wireless technology that enables taxis to accept credit cards.
Amos Taman and his ingenuity have transformed the taxi industry by giving customers the ability to pay by credit card and providing content through touch-screens in the back of a cab.
