“As our company continues its rapid growth, it is imperative that we have a skilled executive driving the performance, strategy and overall success of our sales and business development programs,” said Chase Gilbert, CEO, and Co-founder at Built. “Riley has a proven track record in the financial technology space and we are confident that his expertise in technical marketing and business development will optimize Built’s efficiency and profits within the market.”
Before joining Built, Thomas served as the regional sales manager at Clearwater Analytics in New York City, where he grew three market verticals for the fast-growing fintech provider and assisted in the expansion of its global fund managers, Bermudian & U.S. insurance companies and corporate clients for 10 years. Prior to that, Thomas worked for Micron Technologies, performing business process analysis, strategic planning, and technical marketing work across a broad portfolio of business units.
“I am honored to join Built at a time of tremendous opportunity and growth,” said Thomas. “The global market needs a solution that increases the oversight, efficiency, and collaboration within construction finance, and I look forward to changing the way the world gets Built.”
