It’s important for us to leverage the existing infrastructure in the consumer finance industry while innovating in areas where that infrastructure has become outdated.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
David Johnson, CEO of First Associates Loan Servicing, will speak at the Building an Online Lending Platform Pre-Conference Workshop at the third annual LendIt Conference on April 13 in New York, NY. Johnson will share his insights on loan servicing considerations when building a platform’s back office.
“This workshop provides an excellent opportunity for participants to discuss the special challenges and considerations around building an online lending platform from the ground up” said Johnson. “Even though the online lending industry as a whole is still in the early stages of development, it’s important for us to leverage the existing infrastructure in the consumer finance industry while innovating in areas where that infrastructure has become outdated.”
Johnson has 25 years of experience across industries including finance, technology and energy. He also serves as a Principal with Clearpath Advisors and held leadership positions with companies such as Memec, McKinsey & Company and Bain & Company working with Global 500 clients across North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
“The pre-conference workshops, featuring top industry leaders like David Johnson, is another way to help grow our industry by coaching up-and-coming participants,” said Peter Renton, Co-founder of LendIt and Founder of Lend Academy. “Connecting top industry investors, innovators, and technology companies benefits everyone in our industry and helps fuel growth.”
