He possesses a unique ability to balance customer value and satisfaction with a sustainable business model, and we’re excited that he’s joining our team to continue driving our growth,” Green Dot’s President and CEO, Dan Henry, tells TearSheet; Eckert tripled the size of the business through organic innovation and growth, while building Walmart’s financial services practice into the 3rd largest money services business in the U.S.; Green Dot aims to extend their lead in the banking as a service market, or as it is commonly referred to today as embedded finance.
