Scott Sanborn

Chief Executive Officer

Named 2017 Executive of the Year by LendIt, Scott is the CEO of LendingClub, the largest provider of unsecured personal loans in America, which has helped more than 2.5 million Americans save billions of dollars since it was founded in 2007. 

Appointed CEO in 2016, he is responsible for leading 1,700+ employees to achieve the company’s vision to put members on a path to financial success, as the business evolves beyond its personal loan heritage to serve a broader set of customers’ needs by taking advantage of its technology and data-driven marketplace.

Scott joined LendingClub in 2010 and has been a driving force in the management and development of the organization. With executive roles as Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Operations Officer, and President, he helped steer the company through a prolonged period of triple-digit growth running up to its 2014 IPO, the largest tech IPO that year. Prior to LendingClub, Scott held leadership positions as the Chief Revenue Officer for publicly-traded eHealth Insurance, President of RedEnvelope, Inc., and SVP at the Home Shopping Network.

He holds a BA from Tufts University.
