Bryan’s educational background is vast—with bachelor's degrees in economics and finance, a master’s in business, and a PhD in higher education—and he’s worked in the banking and finance industry for over 20 years. While working in his most recent position at a bank, Bryan worked alongside Clara’s future COO, who offered him the opportunity to relocate to San Francisco and become a part of Clara’s growing Compliance Team.
As a morning person, Bryan gets to the office around 6:30 AM and immediately catches up on any alerts that happened the night before—which can include new legal filings, risks to the organization, and compliance changes. He then schedules meetings with any team members he needs to talk with and ensures that Clara is always in line with the new rules through various monitoring, testing, reporting, and analytics projects.
"I'm looking forward to seeing loans move through a process that we're disrupting from start to finish in a way that is compliant, inexpensive, and meets our individual customer needs."
"There's a passion here unlike any I've ever seen or worked with in my history. There is a commitment to changing what we're doing here in the industry—to make it better for the consumer, not the organization."
