MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 27, 2012) - Credit Sesame, the consumer's credit and loan expert, announced the appointment of Anton Commissaris to its executive team as Chief Operating Officer. He will be responsible for driving revenue growth and overseeing the product and marketing teams.
Commissaris brings more than 18 years of experience in the software, Internet, and mobile sectors spanning leadership roles in product management, sales, business development, marketing, and operations.
Commissaris joins Credit Sesame at a time of rapid growth. The company recently won "Best-in-Show" honors at FinovateFall 2012 and announced that it had passed the 1 million member mark. It currently has more than $41 billion in debt under management and has been quickly adding more members. The growth has also taken Credit Sesame out of a start-up incubator space into its own headquarters in downtown Mountain View, CA.
"Anton is a dynamic talent and a veteran of the personal finance world," said Adrian Nazari, founder and CEO of Credit Sesame. "His unique background and track record in product strategy and growing revenue will be instrumental in helping Credit Sesame continue its momentum."
Prior to Credit Sesame, Commissaris was a founding member of the Mint.com executive team, where he helped the company become a leading personal finance management destination. Under his guidance, Mint was acquired by Intuit for $170 million in 2009, two years after launch. At Intuit, Commissaris helped integrate Mint.com and lay the foundation for the service to grow to more than 10 million users.
"This is an exciting time to join Credit Sesame," said Commissaris. "We're on a mission to make finances more transparent and help consumers save money by leveraging their credit standing and getting the best access to personalized loans, and I look forward to helping Credit Sesame expand through strategic initiatives and revenue growth."
Most recently, Commissaris was the Chief Revenue Officer for Apsalar, a mobile engagement management provider in San Francisco. He holds law degrees from the University of Auckland and the University of Montpellier, France.
