Elevate Credit International, a UK lender offering tech-enabled online credit solutions, has appointed Steve Grice as its new Managing Director. Steve will lead the UK operation of Elevate Credit, which strives to create a fairer financial world for all.
Prior to his appointment as Managing Director, Steve served as Chief Technology Officer where he was responsible for building Elevate’s next generation technology platforms to help customers on their path to better borrowing. Before Elevate, Steve held senior technology roles at RBS, where at different times he led the delivery of technology solutions for the Insurance, International Banking and Global Transaction Services divisions. He has over 20 years’ experience in financial services technology which included positions with Capital One and Barclays Stockbrokers.
Coming into the role, Steve hopes to continue expanding Elevate’s product reach with a long-term view of meeting a broader set of customer needs, with product options more tailored to individuals and their circumstances.
Scott Greever, who previously held the role, will join the US-based management team as Executive Vice President of Rise, Sunny, and Elastic and will continue to work closely with the UK team.
Speaking of his appointment, Steve said: “I worked with Scott for three years as CTO, steering Elevate’s technology adoption, to meet the needs of the company and our customers.
“Having friends and family who have needed short-term credit in the past helped me relate to the needs of our customers and I want to ensure we remain focused on the issues that matter to them. We will continue to call for change where it is needed, for example, in the way credit scores are calculated so that we can help consumers across the UK to access the right products for their needs whilst delivering good customer outcomes.”
“I’m thrilled to be in post as Managing Director and look forward to the next stage of Elevate’s journey.
