Hi!

I’m Charley and I’m currently doing all things fintech at Alloy in NYC. We’re hiring!! I’m always happy to grab ice cream/fries/tea/food to talk startups, fintech, or new anime recommendations. Feel free to email me at firstnamelastname@gmail.com.

I was previously one of the first business hires and head of growth at Ramp, helping to launch the first corporate card built for savings. During my tenure, Ramp was one of the fastest growing corporate card programs in the US and raised over $175M in venture capital from Stripe, Founder’s Fund, Coatue, D1 Capital, and many more.

Prior to Ramp, I was the first business hire at Plaid, a San Francisco based startup that enables applications to connect to financial accounts via API. I led our fintech + developer sales vertical in SF as well as built out our New York office over my 5 years. Plaid has since raised over $700M in venture capital from Altimeter, NEA, Spark Capital, Goldman Sachs, A16Z, Ribbit Ventures, Index Ventures, and many others prior.

Prior to Plaid, I started my career at JPMorgan Chase, working across several strategy groups covering payments, APIs, blockchain, and fintech.

Writing!

I currently write for Fintech Today every other Thursday – subscribe or follow me on twitter for random thoughts on fintech :).

Investing!

I also sometimes invest in early stage companies focused on fintech, product led enterprise software, and developer infrastructure. I’ve invested alongside and helped founders get funding from (🚨namedrop time🚨) firms such as A16Z, Anthemis, Bain Capital Ventures, Better Tomorrow Ventures, Benchmark, Canapi, Coatue, FirstMark Capital, First Round Capital, Founder’s Fund, Homebrew, Index Ventures, Inspired Capital, General Catalyst, Gradient Ventures, TLV Ventures, Redpoint, Spark Capital, and many more!
