Thomas W. Casey will join Lending Club as chief financial officer, effective September 19, 2016.
Casey joins Lending Club with extensive experience and strategic perspective across the entire range of financial functions, including financial accounting, reporting, planning and analysis. He joins Lending Club most recently from Acelity, where he was executive vice president and CFO. In addition, he has more than two decades of senior financial services leadership experience at GE Capital, Washington Mutual, JP Morgan Chase and Citicorp. Casey will report to Scott Sanborn, president and CEO of Lending Club.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Tom to Lending Club’s leadership team,” Sanborn said. “Tom’s outstanding reputation of strategic leadership, metrics-driven management, talent development and integrity, combined with his experience working with investors, analysts and regulators, will be enormously valuable as we further strengthen our foundation in preparation for our next chapter of growth.”
“Lending Club’s success to date is just the beginning,” Casey said. “I look forward to adding my talents to this outstanding team in order to deliver long-term value for shareholders and support Lending Club’s mission to transform the banking system.”
The hiring of Casey follows several other recent high-profile hires, including Patrick Dunne from Blackrock as chief capital officer, Valerie Kay from Morgan Stanley as head of Institutional Investors, Raman Suri from Blackrock as head of Retail Investors and Sameer Gulati from McKinsey as chief operations officer.
Brad Coleman will remain in his role as principal accounting officer and corporate controller, reporting to Casey.
