Eric brings over 20 years of experience in the consumer financial services industry as a former regulator and bank executive, including positions at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Capital One, and GreenNote - a financial technology (FinTech) startup.
“Both FinTech and traditional financial institutions today face greater scrutiny from regulators,” said Treliant CEO Andrew L.

He has been a Principal at QED Investors, a premier venture capital fund with FinTech as one of its focal sectors. As an entrepreneur in 2007, he co-founded GreenNote, the first peer-to-peer lender targeting the private student lending market.
