ezbob, the award winning ‘Lending as a Service’ platform provider hires Jason O’Shaughnessy, to drive business growth within new markets. ezbob’s innovative, ‘Lending as a Service’ platform is already supporting some of the world’s leading brands including ESME Loans (powered by Natwest/ RBS), CYBG (recently acquired Virgin Money), and American Express.
Jason is a highly experienced professional with a proven track record of success. He joins as VP Business Development with a specific remit to open up new markets for the ezbob offerings. His impressive career spans over 20 years having held both senior sales and management positions within established businesses such as Yodlee, a leading data aggregation and data analytics platform provider and innovative start-ups including Versive, a cyber machine learning early threat detection solution.
Jason commented. “My passion is business development, technology innovation and creating new opportunities. SME lending is very much in vogue with both the traditional providers and the disruptive new players all vying for a segment of this highly lucrative market. And this trend is not just confined to the UK and Western Europe as we are seeing increased interest in our solutions across other geographies including Poland, Spain, South Africa, parts of Asia and Australia. The ezbob platform can be easily modified to suit local requirements which is required when penetrating new territories and plays directly to my strengths and experience. I am very excited to be part of the ezbob team and have already initiated some very interesting conversations with both potential customers and partners across these regions.”
Tomer Guriel, founder and CEO of ezbob said, “I am delighted to welcome Jason to the firm. These are exciting times for the business and the past 12 months have been exhilarating as the interest in our industry leading platform grows apace. Thus far, the achievements of the existing ezbob team have been nothing short of spectacular. Not only have we successfully on-boarded a prestigious new client in the form of American Express, we also extended our relationships with existing clients and the scale of incoming enquiries across the world continues to rise unabated. The new business development expertise that Jason’s hiring brings to the team will be invaluable in augmenting and supporting our ambitious global expansion plans.”
