AUSTIN, TEXAS – August 6, 2018– Open Lending, LLC, is honored to announce Ross Jessup as one of Austin’s area’s top chief financial officers. The Best CFO Awards recognize the “fearless financial strategists who provide key guidance to CEO’s, board directors and employees of all levels to keep them on track and thriving.”

In 2017, Open Lending experienced revenue growth by 45% over the prior year. Ross Jessup co-founded the business in 2000. Ross Jessup is Chief Financial and Operations Officer at Open Lending LLC. Eighteen years after starting Open Lending, Jessup oversees the financial and operational aspects of the businesses and works closely with outside actuaries, investors, and insurance partners. Additionally, he helps support national account sales and customer support functions. Previously, he worked in the public accounting area with national firms such as Arthur Andersen and regional firms primarily specializing in transactional matters including mergers, acquisitions, taxation and financing transactions. He also is a general partner of various investment funds that provide early-stage capital to technology-related companies.


“A key attribute of a successful CFO is a self-starter; ask why more. If you depend on following what’s been done in the past, then you’re limiting your scope and setting yourself up for failure or just being equal. I believe being a networker in the financial community has multiple benefits. Anyone can raise capital when things are going great. Building trusting relationships last for a lifetime, as long as you stay honest in what you promise. Bankers and other financial sources want to hear the truth.” –Ross Jessup
