Open Lending, leading provider of loan analytics, risk-based pricing, risk modeling and automated decision technology for credit unions and other lenders, is pleased to announce the promotion of two of our sales executives, Matt Roe and Tom Rice.

Roe was promoted to Chief Revenue Officer. He has been with Open Lending for 12 years, most recently as Senior Vice President of Sales. In his new role, Roe will oversee sales, account management and marketing to ensure alignment across all departments.

Roe works cross-functionally with marketing, implementation, operations, finance, and IT systems within the organization to collaborate with sales leaders and meet target growth. His extensive experience as both a national account manager and marketing manager within the company provides him with the skills and leadership abilities to succeed in his new role.

Rice, a consistent leader on the Open Lending sales team since 2013, will assume the Senior Vice President of Sales position and lead the sales team in the western region. He previously served as Regional Vice President, in which he provided business development and strategy support for clients and prospects.

“Matt and Tom are both excellent leaders and human beings,” Open Lending CEO John Flynn said. “I’m very proud of the entire team we’re building here, and these two exemplify the excellence for which Open Lending strives.”
