John is a Regional Account Manager at Velocity Solutions. He is responsible for sales of Akouba Digital Lending Solutions to financial institutions in the Upper Midwest and Northeast.
John started a banking career nearly thirty years ago with US Bank, while a student at the University of Oregon. He continued in banking after his graduation and gained valuable insights into all aspects of retail operations as well as consumer and commercial lending.
In 1995, John moved into the bank technology sector by joining CFI ProServices in Portland, Oregon. While a Sales Executive for CFI, John helped build the market presence for its flagship loan documentation and compliance product, LaserPro. Most recently, John was a Sales Executive for Finastra, formerly D+H and Harland Financial Solutions. During his tenure there, his focus was on process automation for end-to-end commercial and retail lending.
While he’s a native and proud Oregonian, John has adapted exceptionally well to the Midwest. He lives in Mayville, Wisconsin with his wife Sara, who made John pledge loyalty to the Packers as a condition to agreeing to marry him. When not working, John enjoys the outdoors, shooting sporting clays, and he also enjoys traveling around the US by RV with Sara and their two Australian Shepherds.
