Pearl Capital Business Funding, a provider of direct financing to small and midsize businesses, announced Jared Kogan joined the company as chief revenue officer.
“I am thrilled to be joining Pearl Capital and leading the sales team into a new era of success,” said Kogan.
Kogan joined Pearl following a 10 year career in the fintech space, most recently serving as the director of OnDeck’s broker division where he funded 10,000 loans for over $650 million in volume and was able to grow production from $14 million to over $40 million per month. Prior to OnDeck, Kogan served as vice president at Newtek, the largest non-bank SBA lender in the country.
“I have been impressed in the two years I have known Jared with his tactical ability and breadth of knowledge,” said Solomon Lax, chief executive officer at Pearl Capital. “Jared is hugely talented and will accelerate Pearl’s dominance of the subprime small business financing space.”
“As the business loan market consolidates, Pearl Capital continues to stand out as a tried and true force that will persevere and thrive,” said Kogan. “Their underwriting technology and customer support are setting a new bar for the industry. I am looking forward to contributing to the company’s future growth by expanding existing partnerships and continuing to create new ones.”
