Greg Symons

COO & co-founder

Greg is the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of SocietyOne. A driven lifetime entrepreneur, Greg has been highly focused in business start-ups in the financial technology space. Greg’s specialty is in developing web-based, industrial grade financial banking and origination systems. With ClearMatchTM, he continues to pioneer disruptive and globally relevant P2P investment and lending platform models for both consumers and institutions.

Prior to co-founding SocietyOne in 2011, Greg was based in New Zealand where he and his technology team developed the first online retail lending system in the country in 2000. Greg continued to evolve the platform into a comprehensive banking solution when it was licensed to a number of banks and finance companies in South Africa, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia.

In 2005 Greg leveraged his technology platform and industry experience to launch a direct consumer finance company. Greg exited the business in 2007, with the exclusive rights to the technology. He immediately re-architected the platform, now known as ClearMatchTM, with his technology team by building a unique SAAS-based direct investment/borrow market ecosystem solution that now powers SocietyOne and other finance market companies.
