Two-decade industry veteran joins team as data analytics platform officially launches
ROANOKE, Va., Jan. 21, 2020 – KlariVis, a unique and proprietary data analytics software platform developed by bankers for bankers, announced that financial industry veteran, Jeff Harper, has joined its team as chief revenue officer (CRO). KlariVis, which will officially launch this week at Bank Directors’ Acquire or Be Acquired Conference, provides transformative data visibility to financial institutions as many face difficulties with their siloed ancillary systems and fragmented customer information.
In addition to Jeff’s powerful network of financial institutions, trade associations and suppliers to the banking industry, Harper brings extensive experience in product development, sales and marketing management and senior leadership to the KlariVis team. In his new role, Jeff will be responsible for driving the company’s revenue strategy and will manage all revenue-related functions, including sales/business development, marketing, channel management, and customer success/customer service.
“Having Jeff join KlariVis at this exciting juncture speaks volumes to the confidence he has in our new software platform,” said Kim Snyder, CEO and founder of KlariVis. “Jeff and I have known each other through various business associations for many years, so having the opportunity to now work together on creating this unique tool for bankers is exciting and energizing. He is uber-connected in the industry and we see landing someone of his caliber and experience to the KlariVis executive team as a huge win for our company.”
Most recently, Harper served as the CRO for Allied Payment Network where he managed Allied’s channel partner network and marketing initiatives. Harper also was president of BSG Financial Group, a provider of profit-enhancing solutions for financial institutions nationwide, where he actively participated in the sale of the company to Velocity Solutions. He worked as a commercial lender for PNC Bank and SunTrust Bank, and a staff accountant for PWC as well. Harper serves on the board of the Association for Financial Technology (AFT) and has been a member of various banking associations, including the Financial Managers Society. He is an active member in numerous non-profit associations in Louisville and serves on the Executive Advisory Council for the College of Business at James Madison University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Harper said, “Having the opportunity to work with an entrepreneurial group of former community bankers to develop a data analytics solution that can be deployed in a straightforward and user friendly format and at an affordable price for financial institutions nationwide is so refreshing for our industry. I am honored and humbled to have been selected for this leadership role with KlariVis. The overarching market demand for technology created, developed and supported by seasoned bankers is one of the factors that attracted me to KlariVis.”
“The KlariVis team is filled with entrepreneurial spirt – self-starters with a ‘can-do’ approach,” Snyder explained. “Jeff’s integrity, responsiveness, industry knowledge, work ethic and collaborative approach match perfectly with the KlariVis team and core values. He understands that we created KlariVis to help our clients become high-performance financial organizations and also understands we are only successful when our clients are successful.”
Created by bankers, for bankers, KlariVis enables employees at all levels of the organization to efficiently access the massive amounts of customer, market, product and service data that resides in their core and ancillary siloed systems, thereby empowering bankers to make data-driven decisions by improving insight into the components that affect loan, deposit and revenue growth. Additionally, KlariVis creates organizational efficiencies that allow financial institutions to focus on strategic decision-making, not managing cumbersome data and reporting processes. With KlariVis, financial institutions now have the capability to get the right data in the right hands at the right time to make the right decisions for their organization. The KlariVis team will be exhibiting the platform at Bank Director’s Acquire or Be Acquired Conference, ABA’s Conference for Community Bankers and ICBA Live 2020.
Created by veteran community bank executives, KlariVis was developed to enable institutions of all sizes to access their transformative data in an efficient way, interpret it, and act decisively on it. The KlariVis team has more than 85 years of community banking experience and aims to provide financial institutions with a data analytics platform designed to solve the data conundrum that is prevalent in the industry today.
