MotoRefi hires 3 new senior execs, signs lease for new headquarters
MotoRefi announced a series of moves on Wednesday, including a new expanded headquarters as well as the addition of three senior executives to its management team.
The auto fintech startup that was an Emerging 8 honoree last year and secured $10 million funding to begin 2021 has signed a lease for a modern 22,000-square-foot space in downtown Washington, D.C. Previously based in Arlington, Va., MotoRefi said in a news release that the decision to relocate to a larger headquarters was due in part to the growth of its team.
And that team now includes:
— Dan Morrison as vice president of product
— Aaron Fagan as senior director of analytics
— Casey Clare Fraser as executive level chief of staff
Morrison comes from Arlington-based LiveSafe where he was a senior product director focused on shipping next generation preventative intelligence solutions, fueling four-fold revenue growth over a three-year span.
Following LiveSafe’s exit, Morrison served as a vice president in the acquiring company, driving LiveSafe’s continued product strategy and roadmap.
Fagan, formerly an analytics and strategy leader at Uber, advised company executives on topics ranging from capital allocation to multi-year growth strategies during his six-year tenure. Fagan joins the MotoRefi community along with notable Uber alumni including board member Rachel Holt, chief operating Eric Stradley and investor Billy Guernier.
Fraser will join MotoRefi as after previously holding a similar role at Washington, D.C.-based Optoro.
“We couldn’t be more excited to add these talented executives to our management team,” MotoRefi chief executive officer Kevin Bennett said in the news release.
“This investment in senior, high-caliber talent showcases our commitment to rapid growth and building a world-class, mission-driven fintech company,” Bennett continued. “Each of these individuals bring a unique, critically important skill set that will prepare MotoRefi for the next phase in our journey.”
With its new central D.C.-based office, MotoRefi added that it intends to continue hiring locally and plans to open the new office for its staff later this year.
