New hires include an NFL veteran and prominent general counsel.

EarnUp, a San Francisco-based fintech company offering payment and data solutions for the mortgage industry, has announced the expansion of its executive team to help accelerate the company's growth and support its mission to create a financial system that transforms the loan payment system into a key driver for achieving financial wellness.

The four new executive appointees are Michelle Scanlon as chief people officer; Aileen Casanave as general counsel; Brad Woodcox as vice president of strategy and operations; and Johnathan Flowers as head of marketing.

“Michelle, Aileen, Brad, and Johnathan bring with them decades of experience and their expertise will bolster our executive team as we drive the company’s next round of growth together,” said Nadim Homsany, EarnUp co-founder and CEO. “EarnUp has already helped over 100,000 borrowers to simplify the mortgage payment experience. With our expanded executive team, we are well positioned to grow the number of lenders and servicers on our platform to reach and serve even more people.”

EarnUp’s four new leaders bring a wealth of experience with them:

  • Michelle Scanlon has been promoted to the newly created role of chief people officer. She will continue to drive people strategy and enhance the company’s culture. Scanlon joined EarnUp in 2020, with more than 15 years of experience leading global people and culture programs for high-growth technology companies, including Broadcom, Accela, Jiff, and HelloSign (a Dropbox Company).
  • Aileen Casanave has been appointed general counsel to  oversee and manage EarnUp’s legal and regulatory compliance matters. Casanave has been general counsel or has held senior legal positions at many Silicon Valley companies, including Jiff, TIBCO, Sun Microsystems, and Lockheed Martin. She has over 30 years of legal and business experience in technology commercial transactions, regulatory compliance, intellectual property, and corporate governance. She serves on the Board of Governors of University of San Francisco School of Law and is president of the California Association of Black Lawyers.
  • Brad Woodcox has been promoted to the role of vice president of strategy and operations. He will continue to drive EarnUp’s internal operations as well as lead company strategy. He joined EarnUp in 2017 to create and lead the partnerships and business development teams. In his role, he helped grow the company from first enterprise sale to double-digit enterprise contracts and over $10 billion in loans managed on the EarnUp platform. Woodcox has more than 20 years of experience creating business value and impact for startups and large corporations via roles in product, engineering, operations, strategy, and business development for companies in highly regulated industries, including fintech, medical devices, and legal.
  • Johnathan Flowers has been appointed head of marketing to lead all marketing initiatives to attract and retain enterprise customers. He brings over 25 years of marketing, design, and creative experience to EarnUp, having held senior positions at companies such as Google, PayPal, Amazon, PubNub, eBay, Agilent, and HP. He is a U.S. Army combat veteran; an NFL veteran with the Los Angeles Raiders football organization; and the Scottish Claymores football team, formerly part of NFL Europe.
