Three Top Execs To Leave Online Lending Platform SoFi
SoFi, a fintech startup firm in the online lending services industry, has recently seen three of its top executives departing, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The company had great plans for the year. SoFi has started a partnership with Coinbase this year, the largest exchange of the U. S. Because of the partnership, the company was set to roll out crypto trading support.
Now, however, three execs left the company. They were Kevin Moss (head of risk), Ashish Jain (top capital markets exec) and Joanne Bradford (marketing chief). They were all working on the company for a long time and they revealed to the CEO Anthony Noto this week that they plan to leave their current job positions at SoFi.
About The Executives Leaving
Bradford worked for both Yahoo and Pinterest before arriving at SoFi, so he was very experienced. He oversaw the marketing of the company while he worked there.
Moss came from Wells Fargo, where he worked as an executive before. He is the one who set up the lending standards of the company, while Jain managed all the interactions between the company and the banks directly.
At the moment, we only know that Lauren Stafford Webb, who worked on Zynga before, and Jennifer Nuckles will take over the role that was originally held by Bradford. The people who will be the successors of the other two were still not announced at the time of this report.
The Future Of SoFi
At the moment, it looks like SoFi is set to continue working as it has always been. The impact of three very important people leaving the company will certainly not be meaningless, but the truth is that it may cause some unforeseen trouble.
Now, we have to look carefully at the company to see whether it will continue its usual plans for moving forward of if these key figures leaving the company will actually end up being a problem for SoFi.
SoFi was able to raise half a billion USD from its funding round last month, though, so it is hard to say that it will be in trouble with all that money around. At the moment, the company is valued at $4.3 billion USD.
