We are thrilled that Keven Sticher has joined the defi team as our chief information officer! Keven is taking charge of business alignment, vision, strategy and execution of information technology and information security for the company.
What does that mean exactly?
To boil it down, we share Keven’s conviction that organizational alignment is key to the overall success of a growing company. So, Keven’s role will be to make sure that our company’s goals, people and processes are accurately aligned, and that our clients, partners, and defi team members understand their essential roles in helping us attain these goals. Sound simple? It’s not!
defi has recently grown from a single loan origination service to a multi-family lending technology platform that includes loan management and servicing, analytics and reporting, digital document handling, an auto loan portfolio marketplace, and direct loan application services. And Keven has the right experience for the excitement ahead.
Keven comes to us with over 25 years in technology, over 15 years in finance, and he’s built and led multiple technology and security organizations from the startup stage to over $3 billion in revenue. Translation: this guy knows his stuff!
“The timing was perfect for bringing Keven onboard.” said COO Georgine. “His experience and solid track record of deploying scalable technology makes him a perfect fit for us moving forward. And we’re confident that his strategic leadership will strengthen the defi core as we expand to provide more value to our lenders.”
Keven was previously SVP of IT at Monogram Residential Trust, VP of IT at Exeter Finance Corp. and director of IT, Data Center Services at Capital One. He currently serves on the board of Fox Three, a cyber security organization, and as a member of the Forbes Technology Council.
Join us in wishing Keven a hearty welcome!
