PORTLAND, Oregon, June 17, 2019 – Money Crashers is pleased to announce the addition of Jack Phan as their new President & COO. Phan brings 20+ years experience in executive leadership, business & product development, online media, marketing, team building and operations.
Phan’s arrival comes on the heels of a significant website and branding revamp designed to bring Money Crashers’ reliable, modern, and authentic personal finance education to a wider audience. Money Crashers’ deep commitment to helping its readers turn the tables on money will be supported by Phan’s dedication to Money Crashers’ values and his many years of experience in leveraging technology to help businesses scale for growth.
“Americans have an unhealthy relationship with money. Part of this is due to a lack of personal finance education within our primary, secondary and even tertiary education system,” Phan says. “People are left to figure things out for themselves and that can be intimidating and lead to unintended consequences. Money Crashers helps its readers turn the tables on money. Readers learn not only how to grow and protect their money, but also how to enjoy their money.”
Money Crashers was established in the wake of The Great Recession. On a mission to fill the void in personal finance education, Money Crashers now proudly serves over 3 million unique visitors each month. With a nuanced approach to personal finance education, Money Crashers provides accessible, reliable, and trustworthy personal finance editorial content that covers a wide array of topics that includes budgeting, investing, taxation, family planning, banking, lending, and more.
Phan- who helped scale Digital Trends company into the #1 private tech media company in the world – is a member of the Linfield Business Advisory Council, Oregon Venture Fund and Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN). He attended Pacific University and is a regular participant in events and discussions surrounding entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology. He co-founded ReliableRemodeler.com in 2001 as CTO and bootstrapped the company to ranking #187 on the 2007 Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies and pioneered the matching algorithms and lead distribution platforms for online lead generation in the 90s.
