Better Mortgage taps CFO from small biz lender

Digital mortgage company Better Mortgage has announced the appointment of Howard Katzenberg as CFO as it plans to build up its West Coast presence.

Katzenberg has focused entirely on innovation within financial services throughout his career. He brings with him experience in scaling operations of entrepreneurial businesses to his role.

Katzenberg will be based out of the company’s New York City office. He joined from online small business lender OnDeck, where he most recently served as CFO. Katzenberg joined OnDeck in 2008 as one of its first employees. Under his financial leadership, OnDeck grew its revenues more than 80% per year, scaled headcount to more than 500 employees across three countries, raised more than $1 billion in securitization and credit commitments, and completed a $230 million IPO.

Better Mortgage also plans to hire new talent for its West Coast offices. The plan is part of the company’s efforts to support more borrowers across the US by being in two time zones.
