Lendkey Hires Ex-Treasury Chief to Head AnalyticsMarch 8, 2016 | By: deBanked Staff
Lending platform LendKey hired Salil Mehta as senior vice president for credit risk and analytics.
Mehta was the director of the policy, research and analysis department at the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. and served as an adjunct professor of statistics at Georgetown University. Prior to that, he headed analytics for the Department of Treasury after the 2008 financial crash and was responsible for econometric, reporting and regulatory advice at the IMF, G-20 and the G-8 summits and has also held private sector positions at HSBC and Citigroup.
At Lendkey, which provides credit unions a platform to set up online lending programs, Mehta will oversee data and analytics—providing insight on credit risk and loan performance for clients and partners.
“We are in an age where banks and credit unions are searching for new capabilities to connect with their customers,” Mehta said. “…I’m inspired and excited to be spearheading that endeavor.”
