MoneyLion Names First COO

The fintech startup named its first chief operating officer following a $100 million Series C capital raise earlier this year.

With MoneyLion on the hunt for new customers following an injection of capital earlier this year, the fintech investing and banking firm is adding Samantha Roady as chief operating officer. Roady has been a board member at the New York City-based firm since September 2016 and was previously a founding partner at GAIN Capital.

"As a MoneyLion board member, Sam has been instrumental in our evolution and deeply involved as a strategic advisor,” said Dee Choubey, MoneyLion founder and CEO, in a statement. “I couldn't be more thrilled that she's decided to join MoneyLion full-time as our COO. She shares our vision to change the way millions of hard-working Americans engage with their finances and our mission of putting them on a path to a stronger financial future."

Roady will be bringing her commercial strategy and experience in “revenue-generating activities” to MoneyLion. She was drawn to the membership model established at the firm, according to the hiring announcement. MoneyLion said it surpassed 6 million members in 2019.
