Exec Shuffle at Online Lender Prosper as Aaron Vermut Named CEO

Online lending marketplace Prosper said on Monday that it has promoted its president Aaron Vermut to the CEO position. His father Stephan Vermut has moved on from the CEO slot to the role of executive chairman.

The Vermuts joined Prosper in January of last year alongside a $20 million investment from Sequoia Capital.
