AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Liveoak Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce the appointing of Tim Ramza as new CEO in January of this year.
Tim's appointment comes at a critical inflection point for growth and expansion, having recently won several enterprise engagements with global customers. With the strategic vision and operational expertise that Tim brings to the table, Liveoak is poised to continue on a rapid growth trajectory.
Prior to joining Liveoak, Tim served as the Chief Innovation Officer at John Hancock/Manulife and President of Manulife New Ventures where he led strategic investments into early stage fintech companies. He has spent the past twenty five years operating at the intersection of software and financial services, having held various executive roles at Fidelity Investments and Advent Software.
When asked about the opportunity, Tim said, "Digital Transformation is going to be a hard journey for large companies in the financial services, real estate and automotive industries. Complex legacy systems and years of compounding regulations create major roadblocks for converting prospects to clients. Liveoak aims to be a critical partner to those firms that want to take the friction out of the buying process and dramatically reimagine the customer experience. I'm fired up to be part of this mission."
Andy Ambrose, Co-founder and former CEO of Liveoak Technologies, will take on a new role as President and head of business development and partnership initiatives. Andy will continue to lead the charge introducing Liveoak's Virtual Interactions™ platform to leaders in banking, insurance, retirement and wealth. He's been instrumental in building foundational traction and we are thankful for his continued leadership and commitment.
"Starting Liveoak and having the chance to build and work with such a great team has been one of the most incredible and rewarding experiences of my career. We set out to improve customer engagement and digital transformation - and we are well on our way. I'm over the top excited to bring in an executive of Tim's caliber to help us achieve the next stage of exponential growth," said Andy.
