Credit.com, a leading consumer education and financial resource website, is proud to announce Raj Jha as its Chief Operating Officer. Raj has spent nearly twenty years working in data licensing, content syndication, social media and Internet advertising in roles ranging from attorney to executive management.
Raj’s appointment marks the latest in a series of new hires tasked with helping to lead the company’s expansion in a consumer marketplace that is increasingly focused on credit and personal data. Raj will oversee Credit.com’s operations, including product and content development initiatives.
“We’re extremely pleased to have Raj on our team,” said Ian Cohen, Credit.com’s CEO. “His skills and experience are a perfect match for the company as it expands its offerings to help change the way people use and shop for credit.”
Given his two decades of experience, Raj is well positioned to help lead the company through the coming period of transition and growth. He was previously Vice President of Strategic Transactions for Ask.com (acquired by IAC) where he led the structuring and negotiation of the company’s technical, marketing and channel alliances, executed the company’s asset purchases and mergers and acquisitions, and managed the company’s intellectual property portfolio. Raj also served as Vice President of Technology Partnerships for Reef (acquired by Mediasurface PLC), a global software company with offices in the US, UK, France, Germany, Belgium and Australia. Most recently, Raj co-founded and was a partner at Smithline Jha LLP, an innovative law firm specializing in structuring strategic deals for VC funded and public companies including Facebook and Yahoo!.
"Credit is an essential part of consumers’ financial lives, and Credit.com does a fantastic job helping people understand how it works. They’ve become a great resource for people looking for both credit information and products that make sense for them,” said Raj. “I’m excited to be part of a team that not only builds great consumer resources, but also provides financial institutions with customers best suited to their products."
Prior to earning his law degree at Boston College Law School, Raj was a software engineer, and as an undergraduate at Brandeis University he did research on database technologies sponsored by Digital Equipment Corporation.
