When Kabbage co-founder Kathryn Petralia approached her former colleague, Jon Hoffmann, about joining the company, he was quickly intrigued. With an extensive background in financial services, Jon wanted to be a part of the industry's next evolution. As Kabbage's Head of Credit Operations, he is responsible for many of the customer-facing impacts associated with Kabbage's direct lending business.
Prior to joining Kabbage, Jon was the Head of Strategy, Collections and Portfolio Management for Aegis Global. Previously as a Managing Director for CompuCredit Corp, he oversaw the international collection platform that provided a strategic edge for CompuCredit in the U.S. and Europe.
His extensive background also includes serving as the Senior Vice President and Group Executive over consumer collections, recovery, fraud, authorizations and some credit functions for Wachovia Bank. In addition, he was the Vice President of collections, recovery and fraud for USBank.
An adventurous spirit, Jon enjoys snow skiing, off-road motorsports and wake surfing and counts Pelican Pete’s Bar & Gill on Lake Lanier as one of his favorite small businesses. He serves as Kabbage's resident scuba diving expert, having spent time diving in Thailand, Malaysia, Palau, The Maldives, New Guinea, the Philippines and other places around the world.
