ezbob targets new markets after hiring VP of business development

Lending as a service platform provider ezbob has hired Jason O'Shaughnessy as its VP of business development as it plans to grow into new markets.

The ezbob platform – designed for banks and other financial institutions – currently supports several high-profile companies, including ESME Loans, CYBG and American Express.

Jason will bring over 20 years of experience to ezbob having held senior sales and management positions within established businesses such as Yodlee – a data aggregation and analytics platform provider – and Versive, a cyber machine learning, early threat detection solution.

In his new role, Jason will be tasked with opening up new markets for the ezbob offering.

He explained that his passion was business development and creating new opportunities.

“SME lending is very much in vogue with both 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 potential customers and partners across these regions.”

Tomer Guriel, founder and CEO of ezbob, said he was 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.

“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.”
