SoFi has hired Aaron J. Webster as its new chief risk officer, where he will be responsible for the company’s risk, fraud and credit management frameworks

SoFi has announced that its Board of Directors has named Twitter Chief Operating Officer Anthony Noto as Chief Executive Officer and a Director, effective March 1. Interim SoFi CEO Tom Hutton, who also has been serving as Executive Chairman, will become Non-Executive Chairman of the Board.
 
“We are simply thrilled to have found someone of Anthony’s expertise and knowledge to lead SoFi,” Hutton said. “The SoFi board unanimously agrees that Anthony’s deep understanding of technology, consumer, and financial businesses make him the perfect fit to be SoFi’s CEO. We could not be more excited to have someone of his caliber on board.”
 
Noto joins SoFi from Twitter, where he has served as COO since November 2016. Noto joined Twitter as Chief Financial Officer in July 2014. Before Twitter, Noto served for almost four years as Co-Head of Global TMT Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1999, was named Partner in 2004, and served as the Head of Communications Media and Internet Equity Research. Before returning to Goldman, Noto spent almost three years as CFO of the National Football League (NFL).
 
“I’m grateful to the SoFi Board for this extraordinary opportunity to lead one of the most important new companies at the intersection of technology and finance,” Noto said. “SoFi has a significant opportunity to build on its leadership position in student and personal loans to revolutionize consumer finance and build a next-generation financial services company. I’m excited to work with Tom and the rest of the SoFi team.”
 
SoFi closed 2017 having reached new milestones across its business, cracking $25 billion in funded loans since inception and over 430,000 members.
 
Hutton was named Interim CEO in September 2017. An initial investor in the company, he joined the SoFi Board in June 2012. Hutton serves as Managing Director of XL Innovate, a venture capital firm focused on insurance and financial technology.
 
Earlier this year, SoFi promised a month’s worth of home-delivered avocado toast to any borrower who took out a home loan with the company during the month of July.
