Raistone Hires Ksusha McCormick to Lead Firmwide Strategy

McCormick brings 20+ years of business building experience within the financial services and fintech industries

Raistone today announced the addition of Ksusha McCormick to its executive team, where she will serve as the company’s new Chief Strategy Officer and spearhead the leading fintech’s next phase of growth.

In her role, McCormick will be responsible for alignment and implementation of strategic priorities across Raistone. She will oversee the teams responsible for corporate and product strategy, and will report to Raistone Chief Executive and founder Dave Skirzenski.

“This is a pivotal time for the financial services industry, as many companies are forced to seek non-bank partners to meet their working capital needs,” McCormick said. “Uncertainty in the banking sector presents a tremendous opportunity for Raistone, which has proven itself to be a reliable, scalable and flexible provider of business funding. Amid rising interest rates and a stressed financial system, Raistone is a best-in-class partner for SMEs looking to strengthen their cash position using alternative working capital solutions.”
