Even Financial, the platform powering financial services online, today announced John Ventura as its new president. The company has also added two new members to its advisory board: Don Richman, former CMO at Avant, and Todd Ruppert, former president and CEO at T. Rowe Price.
In his new role, Mr. Ventura will be responsible for overseeing Even Financial’s strategic relationships in financial services, and positioning the company for continued expansion. Even, which was founded in 2016, has grown 500 per cent in the last year, and is now working with over more than partners, including major financial institutions and marketers.
“We are fortunate to have John Ventura join our team,” said Phillip Rosen, CEO of Even Financial. “Tapping his long history in financial services and as an entrepreneur, we are confident that John will help with our continued success and capitalize on the explosion of online financial services.”
From early in his career at American Express until now, Mr. Ventura has helped financial institutions create better ways to find and serve their customers. He has vast experience building new businesses, both inside of growing technology companies including Moviefone and Doubleclick, and his own startups: Cashpath, a fin-tech, and Partner Advisors, a financial services consulting firm.
“Even Financial brings to the market a unique and necessary technology that dramatically improves financial institutions’ ability to acquire and monetize customers,” said Mr. Ventura. “I am thrilled to join the team to help further Even’s mission and expand its relationships throughout the financial service industry.”
The additions of Mr. Richman and Mr. Ruppert to Even Financial’s advisory board gives the company an added breadth of financial services knowledge to depend on as the company expands its partnerships and technology offerings. These new advisory board members join Ron Suber, Jeff Stewart and Lewis Girsh.
