Chicago, Il, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OppLoans, a leading socially responsible fintech firm, has appointed Kyle Williams to the new role of Head of Government Affairs. Williams is a seasoned policy executive with a background in the consumer finance industry, extensive experience on Capitol Hill and a strong track record advocating for underserved borrowers nationwide. He will pursue expansive policies in Washington, D.C., on behalf of OppLoans and its growing customer base.
Most recently, he served as the Director of Financial Services Policy of the Washington Bureau of the National Urban League. He has extensive experience leading policy efforts to help underserved communities gain access to traditional financial services, products and jobs. He also helped lead Congresswoman Fudge’s (D-Ohio) and Governor Strickland's (D-Ohio) federal economic policy portfolios.
"Kyle is the perfect leader to introduce Capitol Hill to the OppLoans story," said OppLoans CEO Jared Kaplan. "As a consumer finance platform focused on the median-income U.S. consumer, OppLoans hopes to work with policymakers to ensure adequate access to credit for those who don't qualify for traditional financing options. Kyle's compelling financial policy background and subject matter expertise make him the only choice to be our leader at the intersection of compliance, regulation and ethical lending."
Williams added, “My years in the financial services policy field have demonstrated time and time again that borrowers need responsible access to credit and protection from predatory actors in the space. I’m excited to join the team at OppLoans, whose proven history of borrower advocacy aligns with my own professional history and values.”
Williams will be the face and the voice of OppLoans in Washington, D.C., to ensure members of Congress, federal regulators and community advocates have knowledge of the unparalleled benefits of OppLoans' consumer products.
