Carrie Weber Joins LendingHome As CRO

LendingHome announced that senior executive Carrie Weber has joined the company as chief risk officer (CRO).

Weber will oversee risk and compliance activities and design a risk management strategy intended to bolster LendingHome during a period of growth for the company.

LendingHome recently announced it will change its name to Kiavi this year. It is one of the largest lending companies in the country, catering to professional real estate investors, and has originated more than $7.8 billion in loans.

“Managing risk is critical for every company and we’re eager to add Carrie’s experience and unique perspective to our management team,” said LendingHome CEO Michael Bourque. 

“We’re very confident that she’ll help us create a nimble and modern risk management system that helps us adapt to the changing market dynamics we’ll face as we continue to grow.”

Weber formerly served as senior vice president, CRO at Nebraska-based Ameritas. Before that, she was the director of finance at ConAgra Foods and chief financial officer at Arbor Bank, respectively.

“This is an exciting time for LendingHome and I am thrilled to be part of the team,” Weber said. 

“I’m impressed by the strategic direction and vision set forth by the leadership team to seamlessly bring innovative technology and expertise to real estate investors. A strong risk culture is an important factor in enabling companies to achieve strategic growth goals. I’m passionate about risk and compliance and I look forward to contributing to LendingHome’s success, and working with the team to drive the company’s priorities.”
