Alternative financial services provider goeasy Ltd. has announced its latest appointment to its board of directors.
Last week, the Mississauga-based company announced that it had appointed Jason Mullins, goeasy president CEO, to the board. Mullins took the company’s reins back in January 2019, after nine years of ascending through the firm in progressively higher positions.
“Since joining the organization, he has helped lead the transition from Canada’s leading consumer leasing business, through its easyhome brand, to becoming a Canadian leader in the alternative financial services industry through its easyfinancial brand,” goeasy said.
Mullins also brings with him the deft and firm hand that navigated the company through the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.
“We are excited to have Jason join the goeasy board,” said David Ingram, executive chairman of goeasy. “His leadership over the company has resulted in exceptional performance, continued value creation for our shareholders, and furthered our mission of providing everyday Canadians with access to credit.”
goeasy’s online and mobile platforms, along with over 400 leasing and lending locations nationwide supported by more than 2,000 employees, have served more than one million Canadians and originated around $5 billion in loans. The company reported that approximately one-third of its customers graduate to prime credit and 60% improve their credit scores within 12 months of borrowing through goeasy channels.
