Moneythink Adds Industry-Leading Fin-Tech Ceos to Its Board of Directors
Moneythink is thrilled to announce the election of its two newest members to its Board of Directors, Leigh Phillips, CEO of nonprofit fintech SaverLife, and Jerry Nemorin, CEO of financial health platform LendStreet.
Moneythink’s CEO, Joshua Lachs, stated, “We’re humbled and so incredibly energized to bring Leigh and Jerry onto our Board! Our mission is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to successfully complete college with little to no debt while bringing full transparency to college costs. Leigh and Jerry’s individual and combined knowledge of and know-how in solving big, societal financial challenges will, no doubt, accelerate our already strong momentum. As importantly, their combined experience, expertise, and acumen in leading organizational growth will fuel Moneythink’s ability to bring our bold, long-term vision of helping to build a more inclusive economy to life. Our entire organization, Board and staff, is excited to welcome them to Moneythink and get to work!”
Greg Nance, Moneythink’s Board Chair, echoed the sentiment, adding, “Leigh and Jerry are industry-leading executives with tremendous track records. They’ve both built sustainable, impact-generating fin-tech organizations. Leigh and Jerry bring strategic acumen that will be transformative for Moneythink’s ‘less debt, more degrees’ mission!”
About joining Moneythink’s Board of Directors, Mr. Nemorin stated, “College is one of the most transformative and costly financial decisions one will ever make. To have to make that decision at 18 or 19 years old with very little guidance from your parents, as most first-generation college students have had to do, puts them at a significant disadvantage. As an immigrant, I know firsthand. Moneythink’s innovative tools allow students to better assess their options and make the best decision for their future. I am honored to be joining the Board of Moneythink as it prepares to scale its impact and close the education equity gap.” Likewise, Ms. Phillips said, “Moneythink gives students what they need to make one of the biggest decisions of their lives – how to finance their college education. Getting more young people — especially first-generation college students – to and through post-secondary education is one of the most important issues for us to solve as a society. This is as much a financial challenge as an education challenge. I am honored to serve on this stellar Board to help Moneythink emerge as a leader in both the edtech and fintech sectors.”
