Oanda, a global provider of innovative forex trading services, is pleased to announce the addition of two financial-technology industry veterans to its Board of Directors, adding more than 50 years of collective global experience to Oanda's Advisory team.
Joining the Board are Steve Freiberg and Tyler Sloat. Freiberg brings decades of experience from the financial technology (fintech) industry, including his tenure at Citigroup where he served as Co-Chairman and CEO of the company's Global Consumer Group, its Global Cards Group and its North American Investment Products Division. He was most recently the CEO of Etrade Financial Corporation, and is currently an advisor to the Boston Consulting Group, Verisk Analytics, and 7. Freiberg also serves on the Boards of Regional Management Corp., MasterCard, and serves on the Board of Trustees for both the March of Dimes and Hofstra University.
Sloat has more than 15 years' experience in executive roles for Silicon Valley-based payment, software, and hardware technology companies varying in size from start-ups to Fortune 500 firms. Today, he is the Chief Financial Officer at Zuora where he led the efforts to raise more than $100M of equity capital, and helped steer the company to achieve over 10X growth during his tenure.
"For me, one of the many draws to OANDA was its sheer volume of incredible talent and expertise across the entire organization, and the company's Board of Directors is no exception: Steve and Tyler are welcome additions that serve to build on our world-class leadership and market expertise," said President and CEO, Ed Eger, OANDA Corporation. "As we steer into 2015, I know the combined vision, expertise and understanding of OANDA's portfolio from Steve and Tyler will be a tremendous asset and I'm bullish about our continued success."
