eCapital, a finance provider for businesses across North America and the U.K., appointed Todd Zarin as chief legal officer. As part of the executive leadership team, Zarin will oversee eCapital’s in-house legal team and be responsible for all legal operations for the company.

“Todd’s proven aptitude and demonstrated ability to skillfully navigate complex legal scenarios make him a valuable addition to our executive leadership team,” Marius Silvasan, CEO of eCapital, said. “I am confident his expertise will prove instrumental as we continue to enhance our service offerings and expand into new markets to meet the financial needs of even more organizations.”

Zarin’s legal and corporate career spans more than 20 years, with strategic roles helping public and privately held clients in financial services and other industries succeed while navigating critical moments. Throughout his career, Zarin has been instrumental in driving business objectives such as strategic mergers and acquisitions, securing funding through various transactions and guiding companies through initial public offerings. He also provided guidance and direction on corporate governance and securities law compliance matters.

As a seasoned lawyer and board member, he has served clients in multiple capacities, including as general counsel to a South Florida financial services company and as outside counsel with premier law firms such as Weil, Gotshal & Manges and, most recently, as a shareholder at Miami-based Stearns Weaver Miller. Zarin has also helped clients as a strategic and transactional advisor through his own consultancy.

“eCapital’s unique approach to strategic growth while changing the shape of the alternative finance and lending landscape is exciting,” Zarin said. “The leadership team has a well-defined and ambitious vision for the future, and I look forward helping achieve the company’s long-term goals and continue driving the company’s dynamic growth trajectory.”
