Even Financial Appoints Ad Tech Veteran Chris Scott as Chief Revenue Officer

Leading B2B2C Fintech Poised for Continued Expansion

New York, NY – August 1, 2019 – Even Financial (“Even”), the leading API for financial services search, acquisition, and monetization, announced today that Chris Scott has joined the firm as Chief Revenue Officer. Scott, an ad tech veteran with over 20 years of experience across industry leaders including Criteo, Google, Admeld, and Taboola, will be part of Even’s executive team, responsible for the company’s revenue generation strategy and execution.

Scott is a seasoned business executive with an impressive track record helping hyper-growth companies scale and achieve sustainable revenue growth through a relentless focus on prioritizing customer and partner needs. As Chief Revenue Officer, he will drive integration across Even’s revenue stack, including sales, business development, and account management. As part of the executive leadership team, Scott will play a key role pioneering new markets and partnership opportunities, accelerating pipeline growth across the company’s key network partners: financial institutions, channel partners, and enterprise organizations (personal finance, tax prep, retail, lifestyle, member, and workforce).

“Chris brings to Even a passion for growing businesses and a proven track record of success in leading global sales organizations, with deep and lasting partner relationships,” said Phill Rosen, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Even. “We’re thrilled to add his depth of experience, leadership, and operational acumen to Even as we continue to transform the way financial institutions find and connect with consumers.”

Scott has helped build and scale leading B2B ad marketplaces for more than 20 years. He was Senior Vice President of Global Real-Time Bidding & Publisher Strategy at Criteo, where he oversaw the company’s buying function across all global ad exchanges and Tier 1 publisher relationships, through its successful $250M IPO. Scott was Vice President of Publisher Development at Admeld and was instrumental in the company’s successful sale to Google, where he stayed on as part of the transition leadership team. In addition, he was President and Chief Revenue Officer at ConvertMedia, partnering to drive the company’s sale to Taboola, where he then served as Vice President of Video Revenue. He holds an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a BSBA from Washington University.

“Even solves a significant pain point in financial services acquisition by seamlessly connecting supply and demand via our API, turning any consumer touchpoint into an ROI-driven, programmatic acquisition source with full security and compliance,” said Scott. “I’m thrilled to join the amazing team Phill has assembled, and to be part of an organization that is driving market-leading innovation and value not only for our entire network of partners, but also for consumers.”
