National Fintech Company Accelerates Reno-Tahoe Job Creation, Economic Growth
Clear Capital announced plans to hire more than 50 new employees at its Reno headquarters by the end of the year. The move follows news of Nevada’s sustained private sector growth and the addition of nearly 41,000 jobs statewide in 2017.
“We’re creating permanent jobs, meaning more dollars will be spent in our local businesses and that investment will stay in our community in the long run,” said Clear Capital President and Co-Founder Kevin Marshall. “Reno is an outdoor-lover’s paradise filled with incredible talent, trailblazing startups and a national Tier 1 University, and we’re excited to continue our growth from right here in Northern Nevada.”
Clear Capital provides technology, services and analytics to the nation’s largest banks and investment firms to help make critical, collateral valuation decisions. Part of Clear Capital’s workforce expansion focuses on building its sales team to support the company’s next-generation products that use advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies.
To spearhead the company’s growth, Simon Blackburn has joined Clear Capital as executive vice president of sales. Blackburn is responsible for revenue growth, new business and leading the Sales Center of Excellence, the company’s enhanced sales training program designed to hone staff’s sales skills and immerse them in advanced product and industry knowledge.
“Clear Capital is raising the industry’s expectations with its technology and I’m honored to join their team,” Blackburn said. “I’m looking forward to deepening customer relationships and bringing the company’s transformative technology to the rest of the industry.”
Before joining Clear Capital, Blackburn was CEO and co-founder of sales acceleration consultancy Replystream. Earlier in his career, he led sales teams at companies including Accenture, Oracle and NetIQ. Blackburn graduated with honors from Loughborough University in England.
Clear Capital employs more than 500 people nationwide and expects to double in size over the next five years. The company hired more than 100 people last year. For information about job opportunities with Clear Capital, visit careers.clearcapital.com.
