Fundbox hires new Chief Risk Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and Chief People Officer
The appointment of the former Capital One, Visa and Condé Nast executives comes on the back of the company’s $100 million funding round at a $1.1 billion valuation
Fundbox, which develops an artificial-intelligence-powered financial platform for small businesses, announced on Tuesday that it has made three new executive hires: Iskender Eguz as Chief Risk Officer, Steve Greig as Chief Marketing Officer, and Rebecca Sachs as Chief People Officer.
As Chief Risk Officer, Eguz will be responsible for Fundbox’s lending decisions, fraud and credit loss mitigation, and broader risk management oversight. He previously served at Capital One, where he held various leadership roles; most recently, he led shared credit risk management and analytic capabilities for the business.
In the role of Chief Marketing Officer, Greig will build the Fundbox brand and accelerate growth, leading the brand, product and growth marketing, and communications functions. He previously worked for Visa, where he was Vice President of Global Marketing and played a critical role in driving success across Brand Strategy, Product Marketing, Olympics, and FIFA sponsorships. Prior to Visa, Greig served as Head of Consumer Marketing at The Heineken Company.
As Chief People Officer, Sachs will focus on developing Fundbox’s high performance culture and growing talent pool, and will oversee all human resources operations. Sachs previously served at Condé Nast as the Global SVP of People, where she built and executed talent management strategies as the company underwent a digital transformation and globalization. Prior to Condé Nast, she was VP of Human Resources at SiriusXM.
Last year, Fundbox announced a Series D funding round of $100 million at a $1.1 billion valuation. The financing tripled new customer acquisition growth, and helped the company expand the payment capabilities it offers on its platform.
“I am excited to welcome Iskender, Steve, and Rebecca to our leadership team as we continue to build Fundbox into a successful and durable company,” said Prashant Fuloria, CEO of Fundbox. “Not only are they strong functional leaders with deep domain expertise, they are also passionate about serving small businesses and resonate with our culture and values.”
