Wealthfront is disrupting the traditional financial industry by using software to put our clients’ interests first. We’re building the one platform you need to manage your entire financial life and grow your long-term wealth responsibly. Plans this big require an exceptional team, and today we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Jaleh Bisharat to our board of directors. 

A highly coveted board member

Jaleh brings more than 30 years of experience as a marketing executive working with beloved brands including Amazon, Eventbrite, OpenTable, and Upwork. She is also the co-founder and CEO of NakedPoppy, a clean beauty company, and serves on the boards of Novi and Skillshare. 

She’s consistently been a transformative force for consumer brands over the course of her career: she oversaw the rebranding of Amazon that led to the iconic Amazon smile logo, helped Opentable leapfrog over the competition by prioritizing core markets, and helped Upwork revolutionize the freelancing industry.  Her writing has appeared in a variety of outlets including Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, the Huffington Post, and VentureBeat. 

She believes strongly in Wealthront’s mission and is excited to help even more people build secure and rewarding financial futures. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to join Wealthfront’s Board of Directors to give more people the peace of mind that comes from knowing their finances are in good hands,” said Jaleh. “Wealthfront has an exciting opportunity to not just be the best in their category but to become a brand people can’t live without.” 

An exciting time 

Jaleh joins Wealthfront at an incredibly exciting time. Just last month, we delivered on our vision of Self-Driving Money™ when we released new banking features that allow you to automate your finances from end to end. We also launched new investing features that allow you to customize your investment portfolio or build a new one from scratch. Next, we plan to offer even more investing options like individual stocks, a wider selection of ETFs, and cryptocurrency. All of these improvements are a way of putting decision-making power where it belongs: in your hands.

At Wealthfront, we’re building a financial system that favors people, not institutions. That means putting your interests first in everything we do and helping you build the financial future you want on your own terms. We’re thrilled to partner with Jaleh, and we know her deep expertise will be crucial as we help even more people build financial lives they can be proud of. 

Welcome to the board of directors, Jaleh!
