We’ve got two brand new rock-star members on our executive team and we want you to meet them: Lana Johnson and Scott Johnson (and no, they are not related)!
First, Lana Johnson, a 24-year auto finance guru and early defi investor. She joined us in January as our new chief operating officer. Throughout her career, Lana’s held management and executive positions at financial institutions such as Santander Consumer USA/Chrysler Capital, CitiFinancial Auto, and GM Financial.
Lana has a track record of boosting operational efficiency and generating a lot of loan volume. She first found her passion for numbers in kindergarten class, where she and fellow classmates ate Froot Loops to learn their math facts. (A tactic we agree should be included through all years of education!)
Scott Johnson also has 24 years of auto finance and software technology experience under his belt. Scott joined defi just last month as our new chief financial officer, coming most recently from executive positions at CARite and Compuware Corporation.
Scott’s known for his habits of transforming financial reporting systems and leading fast-growing corporate development. (He’s also a former student of legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, and readily dispenses great life advice.)
Both Lana and Scott will be participating in defi SUMMIT 2018, taking place September 18-20, in Southlake, Texas. Join us in welcoming them now and register for defi SUMMIT today and get great lending and life advice from both then. (Who knows? If your last name is Johnson, they might even get you a great deal on the price of admission — free for all defi clients!)
