Prosper Marketplace, which operates a leading online marketplace for consumer credit, today announced the appointment of Parker Barrile as Chief Product Officer.

Barrile will be responsible for expanding Prosper Marketplace’s product and user experience teams and managing Prosper Marketplace’s expanding product suite across web and mobile platforms.

“Parker’s experience building and scaling product and design for high-growth organizations, plus his passion for fintech and online marketplaces makes him an ideal fit for our business,” said Aaron Vermut, chief executive officer at Prosper Marketplace. “He will partner with our engineering team to help us evolve our product offerings as more people discover the benefits of borrowing and investing through the Prosper platform.”

Barrile joins Prosper Marketplace from LinkedIn, where he was vice president of product management and led teams for several of the company’s core monetization products including Talent Solutions, Premium Subscriptions and the Payments Platform. During his five years at LinkedIn, Barrile was instrumental in building consumer and enterprise products that today generate more than $1 billion in annual revenue.

“Prosper Marketplace has achieved the kind of success over the past several years that few companies experience, and I’m really looking forward to taking their product to the next level for the benefit of the platform’s borrowers and investors,” said Barrile.

Prior to LinkedIn, Barrile founded and served as the CEO of Predictify, a community-based prediction platform where members could make and vote on predictions regarding current events. He has also held roles at Google and Bain & Company.
