BlueVine has named Ana Sirbu as the chief financial officer.
Ms. Sirbu became BlueVine’s vice president of finance and capital markets in 2016, helping the online business lender secure more than $200 million in equity and debt financing over the past two years.
“Ana has played a critical role in BlueVine’s growth and success,” company founder and CEO Eyal Lifshitz said. “She has done an incredible job spearheading our capital markets strategy, building out our finance and analytics functions, and strengthening our position in the online business lending market.”
“Ana Sirbu has been instrumental in BlueVine’s impressive rise as one of the most successful fin-tech startups today,” Tyler Sosin, a partner at Menlo Ventures, a BlueVine investor, said. “I’m sure she will make even more significant contributions to BlueVine’s growth in her new role as CFO.”
In November 2017 Ms. Sirbu was named to the Women in Fintech Powerlist, which recognizes the contributions of women professionals in the rapidly-expanding industry.
A graduate of Harvard University, Ms. Sirbu began her career in investment banking on Wall Street. She later was a technology investor at Silver Lake Partners and Google Capital before joining BlueVine.
BlueVine’s total funded volume since founding topped $700 million in 2017. The company also earned the Best Business Finance Provider in North America award at the 2017 Trade Finance Global Awards.
