Blend Bolsters its Board of Directors to Guide Next Phase of Growth

SAN FRANCISCO: Blend (NYSE: BLND), a leading provider of digital banking solutions, is pleased that Bryan Sullivan and Eric Woersching have been elected to its Board of Directors, at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders held on June 12, 2024.

As of June 12, 2024, Sullivan is serving as Chair of the Audit Committee and member of the Compensation Committee, and Woersching is serving as a member of the Audit Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Bryan Sullivan and Eric Woersching to Blend’s Board of Directors,” said Nima Ghamsari, Chair of the Board and Head of Blend. “Sullivan brings over 20 years of experience as an executive, advisor, and operator in consumer lending and identity intelligence businesses, and Woersching’s success advising high-growth software companies will be invaluable as we continue to bring innovative banking solutions to our customers and enhance value for Blend’s shareholders.”

Sullivan currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Identity Intelligence Group, a financial intelligence company specializing in identity theft protection, credit monitoring and financial education. Sullivan was also Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at loanDepot, where he helped lead the company through several acquisitions, capital financings and significant growth.

“Blend has taken several major steps over the last few years to set the business up for long-term success,” said Sullivan. “With a market-leading business, a stronger balance sheet, and a single platform powering multiple types of originations and deposit gathering, Blend now has the opportunity to drive much more efficient growth and innovation for its customers. I have known Blend and Nima since my early days at loanDepot and I am honored to now become a member of the Board, and I look forward to helping Blend build upon its strong foundation.”

Woershing has been a board member and chair of the audit committee at Palantir Technologies since 2022. Prior to that, he led corporate development at EasyPost, was a General Partner at Initialized Capital, and was a portfolio manager and head trader at Thiel Macro and Clarium Capital, from 2008 to 2016.

“Blend is the gold standard for digital banking technology for financial institutions,” said Woersching. “By building a strong reputation with many sophisticated financial institutions, I believe they are uniquely positioned to lead the digital transformation trend in banking. I look forward to partnering with the Board and helping to maximize the opportunity ahead.”

These elections closely follow the appointment of Brian Sheth, who joined Blend’s Board of Directors in April 2024, in connection with a $150 million investment by Haveli Investments, and was also elected by stockholders at the annual meeting. Mr. Sheth, Founder of Haveli Investments, has nearly twenty-five years of experience investing in technology businesses.

Along with Bryan Sullivan, Eric Woersching, and Brian Sheth, Blend’s Board of Directors includes Timothy J. Mayopoulos, former President and CEO of Fannie Mae; Erin Lantz, Chief Revenue Officer of Ethos; Gerald Chen, General Partner at Greylock Partners.
