Tomer Guriel, founder and CEO of ezbob said, “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Marc to the rapidly expanding ezbob team. His sales leadership experience and in-depth knowledge of the global financial services sector are exactly what we need and will enable us to exploit the many new business opportunities that are coming our way. Marc’s joining, together with the recent equity investment, and the appointment of Lindsey McMurray to the ezbob board, means we are in the best position to make our vision of a one-stop-solution for financial institutions that offer lending capabilities to their customers a reality."

Our lending platform is proven and already in use by two major players. ezbob is revolutionising the way SMEs can apply for finance, turning what was once an onerous and frustrating process into a 7 minute yes/no decision.
