Matt joins Validis from LendingFront and has previously held roles at EDR/LightBox where he helped drive strong expansion of SMB finance technology across the US. Matt’s appointment signals an increased focus by the global fintech to further expand its regional footprint and embed the Validis platform across the North American financial services sector.
Validis currently manages the acquisition and curation of SMB accounting data for several top-tier banks, lenders, and the largest global accounting firms – including the US and Canada, where it has had a long-standing operational presence.
“I’m delighted to join Validis in a key role that will help drive further success for the firm”, says Matt. “Validis are a well-established fintech with a wealth of experience, expertise, and an unrivalled level of sophistication in its technology. It’s a very exciting time in the financial services space where we are seeing a huge focus on digital transformation and a wide-spread appetite to improve connectivity and access data in a way that will better serve the SMB community. The Validis platform allows FI’s to seamlessly automate a very manual and time-consuming part of the underwriting and customer management process. I am looking forward to being part of a team that will help reshape the SMB lending experience and drive value for more banks and lenders across North America”.
Paul Thomas, CEO of Validis said, “We’re delighted to welcome Matt to our growing team as we continue to expand our coverage in an evolving US market. He has an impressive track record and brings a depth of knowledge and experience of the banking and SMB lending sector. With our continued focus on product innovation, increased data coverage, and the addition of high-calibre people like Matt, we have exceptional capability to serve our growing customer base.”
