"Online marketplaces have transformed many of our everyday experiences, and Prosper is transforming the financial industry by creating an online marketplace for credit," said Morris. "The growth and momentum at Prosper over the past year has been absolutely stellar and I'm thrilled to be able to contribute my own experience to the company."
