Peach Adds Senior Leaders to Bolster Product, InfoSec Capabilities

February 16, 2022

Here at Peach, we’re proud to have added two key members to our leadership team: Russell Braden joins as VP of Product, and Dr. Anurag Ojha joins as Chief Information Security Officer.

In his Product role, Braden will focus on financial products—continuing to build out Peach’s robust feature set around payments, communications, agent tools, user portal, strategic partnerships and more.

Braden joins from Grainger, where he oversaw Product Development for Customer Information, a cornerstone of Grainger’s broader digital transformation efforts. Prior to Grainger, Braden held key roles in Product and Strategy & Operations at fintech lenders Avant and Enova International.

“Investment in Product is and always has been central to our mission,” said Eddie Oistacher, CEO of Peach. “A loan management and servicing platform that’s as modern and configurable as ours requires technical expertise, thoughtful design and continuing investments in feature development to deliver a product fit for enterprise clients. Russell Braden brings expertise in all these areas, plus practical experience building lending programs at some of today’s best-known fintechs.”

On the InfoSec side, Dr. Anurag Ojha brings over 20 years of experience building and scaling information security programs for leading banks and fintechs. Ojha will lead the design and strategy of Peach’s information security program, with a focus on best practices in security governance and compliance.

Ojha most recently led the global security program at CentralSquare Technologies. Prior to CentralSquare, Ojha established and managed security programs at other technology companies and fintechs, including NetApp ONTAP and Wipro.

"Our role as a critical technology solution for the financial services industry is not something we take lightly,” said Shara Chang, Peach’s General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer. “As remote work becomes the new normal and data security takes center stage among financial regulators' supervisory priorities, Dr. Anurag Ojha's visionary leadership and hands-on experience managing regulatory audits will significantly advance Peach's vision of being a trusted compliance partner to our clients.”

Braden and Ojha join Peach’s existing leadership team, which includes CEO Eddie Oistacher, CTO Eran Sandler and COO Gur Brosh. Other members of the leadership team include Shara Chang, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer; Noah Trugman, VP of Sales and Partnerships; and Dave Waller, VP of Enterprise Sales.
