Adam Hughes is the Chief Executive Officer of Amount, a technology company focused on accelerating the world’s transition to digital financial services. In 2016, Amount was created as a new solution for financial institutions that wanted to significantly enhance their lending experiences around personal loans, credit cards, deposit, point-of-sale, and servicing capabilities.
Amount’s technology enables partners to understand their fraud and credit risk in automated ways, and provides customer self-service tools to help them become more efficient and cost-effective. Since its inception, Amount has grown rapidly with banking partners who collectively manage close to $1T in US assets and are servicing more than 25 million customers.
Before his role at Amount, Adam was President & COO at Avant, an industry-leading, digital consumer lending platform. As Avant’s first employee in 2012, Adam helped successfully scale the high growth financial technology company over the next seven years.
Under Adam’s leadership, Avant secured more than $6 billion in institutional funding and issued over one million personal loan, auto loan, and credit card products through its lending platform. Before his tenure at Avant, Adam spent six years at the consumer lending platform Enova International (ENVA) and also worked as a strategic consultant with Accenture (ACN).
Adam holds a degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, where he lives today with his wife and two children.
