US fintech Stash appoints Liza Landsman as new CEO
US-based investing and banking app Stash has appointed Liza Landsman as its new CEO, effective 6 February 2023.
Landsman brings more than 30 years of experience to her new role, having served in various senior roles at companies including Jet.com, Citigroup, BlackRock and E*Trade.
Prior to joining Stash, she served as general partner at NEA, a global venture capital firm with more than $25 billion in assets under management.
Landsman has been an independent board member of Stash since mid-2022. As she takes up her new role, Brandon Krieg, co-founder and former CEO of Stash, will transition into the role of head of business development.
“Stash empowers millions of Americans to manage and grow their wealth,” says Landsman.
“Its simple-yet-disruptive subscription platform, rooted in a deep commitment to the financial well-being of our customers, is exactly what millions of everyday Americans need today.”
“Liza brings incredible expertise and experience,” Krieg says. “She has seen a company hyperscale; she’s operated in consumer and financial services successfully.
“Liza is customer-centric and ready to bring even more value to the Stash subscription,” Krieg adds.
Stash claims to have more than two million active subscribers, with revenue surpassing $100 million and 30% growth seen last year.
In 2022, it launched its own banking infrastructure Stash Core, and developed a patented Stock-Back debit Mastercard for its customers.
