Getting to Know: Analytics
1. How did you come to work at Enova?
I began my career in credit risk analytics, working with various financial services companies: Providian Financial Corporation, First Chicago Bank, and LaSalle Bank, just to name a few. Frustrated by the commonality of acquisitions and mergers in the financial services industry, I made a career detour from financial services to direct marketing consulting services. However, I have always had a strong desire to utilize my analytics skills in the financial services industry, and here I am, back in the right field!
2. What do you do at Enova?
I’m a senior associate on the Credit Risk Analytics team. An average day might find me building credit risk models for different products across various markets to help the business make sound financial decisions and minimize credit losses. The first model I did early in my career was a credit risk model for our DollarsDirect Australia business. My next challenge is developing a suite of risk models for the U.K. market.
3. What’s the best part of working at Enova?
Easy: The people and the culture. The best working environment I’ve ever been a part of features energetic, bright and supportive coworkers, alongside a culture geared toward making a positive impact on our communities. Best of all, the endless supply of fresh fruit!
4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Any place with magnificent views of the coastline, and a big green mountain.
