Jared Kaplan, CEO of OppLoans, speaks to the reality of consumer lending today and his firm’s efforts to create a path to credit history for non-prime borrowers.

Chicago, Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Jared Kaplan, CEO of the rapidly growing financing platform OppLoans, has released an article addressing the phenomenal health of the business, the state of today’s non-prime borrower, and the firm’s strengths and roadmap.

Kaplan has led OppLoans as CEO since November 2015. In that time, OppLoans has:

  •   Increased headcount from 15 to 315.
  •   Appeared on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies three consecutive years.
  •   Expanded their footprint nationally.
  •   Collected more than five thousand five-star customer reviews.
  •   Created a path to establishing credit history for millions of applicants.

Kaplan said, “Now, at the my three-year mark, the time is right to applaud the OppLoans employees who truly made our incredible growth story possible. And we’re just getting started. With that in mind, I wanted to reflect and also take a clear-eyed assessment of what we’ve achieved for our customers: Are we delivering unmatched value and a responsible credit product for today’s non-prime consumer? Based on the customer response we hear every day, we believe we are. This article represents my thinking on how we got to this point, our core values as a firm, the culture we’ve created, and where we’re going next.”

Kaplan’s article is available on the OppLoans website here.

Over the past three years, OppLoans has grown 1,465 percent and transformed from a Chicagoland brick-and-mortar lender into an online financing platform enabling the non-prime consumer to build credit history.
