Castlight Financial, the Glasgow-based financial capability company has recruited internationally experienced business development entrepreneur, Jason O’Shaughnessy, as a non executive advisor to the Castlight board.
Phil Grady, Castlight Financial’s founder and CEO says:
“Jason has considerable expertise in account aggregation technology and the open API space and has a reputation for making things happen. His CV is a testament to his talent and enthusiasm for growing businesses of all sizes and we are very excited by some of the ideas we have already been bouncing around the boardroom table. We are looking forward to Jason’s advice and input as we continue to develop our Affordability Passport and Categorisation as a Service (CaaS) products, so that both consumers and financial institutions can be assured they have the most incisive and most secure products on the market.”
Jason is Head of Business Development for International at Versive, a Seattle-based company providing cyber security tools that automatically detect advanced cyber threats, combining innovative AI with human expertise.
Prior to his current role, Jason spent 15 years with Evestnet Yodlee, a leading data aggregation and data analytics platform, which provide innovative cloud-based services for financial services companies. During this time, Jason was responsible for developing markets outside of the US, building a strong presence for the company across nine countries and was a founder of Yodlee’s fintech business, back in 2009.
“I enjoy working with innovative companies, it’s good fun. However, when I started talking to Phil and his team, I realised that I’d hit a sweet spot. Not only did they know the industry inside-out and have a creative, innovative vision for moving their business forward, they are clearly in this area of the fintech world for the right reasons. They want to do the right thing for consumers and financial institutions and make the mortgage space easier, faster and safer for everyone involved. I am looking forward to be being part of that mission.”
