SpringFour Growth: Team Additions
February was a big month for us here at SpringFour. SpringFour’s CEO Rochelle Gorey has spent her entire career in financial services, often from the perspective of building better policies, products and solutions that help people see a better financial life. So it was a full circle moment for her to be named a finalist for Lendit’s Fintech Woman of the Year and to share this recognition with other leading fintech leaders. This Award serves as a powerful recognition that what we are building at SpringFour matters–financial health has become a key aspect of financial services, and we are creating long-term impact in the industry. This nomination was a nod to the hard work and passion of the SpringFour team and a recognition for our passion: day in and day out, we continue to build the best financial health platform that exists.
The SpringFour team is growing and in doing so will allow us to accelerate our ability to scale and create impact. Our two new hires have extensive experience in leading industry organizations and it’s a proud moment as a founder to have the ability to bring them on board. It’s been a fast start to 2022 and we’ve added more financial industry leaders to our client list, seen demand for financial health resources continue and are beginning work on important product enhancements. As always, we are thrilled to be working with you in support of the mission of promoting financial health.
Yasmine Anavi has joined SpringFour as EVP, Business Development and Strategic Partnerships. In this role, Anavi will be responsible for developing and expanding SpringFour’s strategic relationships and implementing partner programs throughout the financial services industry.
