Marlette Holdings, a leading financial technology company operating the Best Egg financial platform, announces that Graham Kennedy has joined the team as Managing Director, Head of People and Workplaces, a new role the company created this year. He is responsible for overseeing the company’s human resources organization and people strategy, focusing on all aspects of HR, including talent strategies, employee experience, performance management, leadership development, and workforce digital and physical environments.

Best Egg’s personal loan products have seen tremendous growth in the past two years, accelerating to $19B of loans with solid credit performance. The company has also diversified its offering, introducing the Best Egg Visa® Credit Card and the free Best Egg Financial Health tool in 2021 and announcing $225 million in equity funding in March 2022.

Together, we aim to build a great brand and workplace that will attract and engage the best talent in the U.S.”
