Matt says “I am very excited to join Trust Science. Evan and the team have developed a powerful platform that is demonstrating its distinctive capabilities in financial services and supporting many thousands of consumers who are often excluded by the use of legacy data and tools.

In joining Trust Science, Mr. Browning will help lead Trust Science through its accelerating growth, and he brings industry knowledge to support rapid innovation and banking-grade commercialization.

According to Evan Chrapko, Trust Science’s Founder, Chairman & CEO, “We had to compete for Matt against a tsunami of VCs and PE firms that were clamoring to hire him to lead their portfolio companies. All Trust Scientists, our lender customers, and our software & data partners now have an extremely capable President who can turbocharge our Go-To-Market. Matt is committed to our mission of ensuring that hundreds of millions of deserving individual consumers around the world get the money they deserve.” 

Mr. Browning comes to Trust Science with over two decades of experience in senior executive roles for a myriad of companies ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 100 companies. His experience is highlighted by seven years as a Director on the Board of Altabank (NASDAQ: ALTA), later sold to Glacier Bank (NASDAQ: GBCI) at 2.9X TBV, 5 years as President of Target Bank, and multiple other financial technology and financial services companies, including providing testimony before the US House Committee on Oversight and Accountability regarding banking and chartering.

On the basis of his lifetime of rich experience and deep vision, Matt predicts, “We will build upon our success and further expand in financial services, and soon into new verticals as well, delivering for deserving consumers, for our forward thinking customers, and for our tremendously supportive investors.”
