February 8, 2024, New York, NY – Stash, the pioneering investing app that serves millions of Americans, today announced Steven Hodgeman as Chief Financial Officer and Jackie Stern as Chief Marketing Officer. With these additions, Stash’s top leadership ranks are complete. 

“Steven and Jackie are among the most impressive and skillful consumer tech leaders in the business,” says CEO Liza Landsman. “They were tapped for their deep domain expertise as well as their background driving exponential growth as they scaled wildly ambitious companies across sectors. As Stash enters this new year infused with fresh capital, our executive team is officially complete, and we’re focused on relentlessly pursuing the high bar of achievements we anticipate for 2024.”

Steven Hodgeman joins Stash from Getir, the global ultra-fast delivery service that recently acquired FreshDirect, where he served as CFO of International, overseeing all Europe and U.S. finance responsibilities. Before that, he was Global Deputy CFO of Gorillas, a European and U.S. Getir competitor that the company acquired for $1.2 billion. These two acquisitions were just the latest in a decades-long string of transaction-related experience for Stash’s new CFO. During the high-growth era of the late 2010s, Hodgeman advised private and public technology, media, and telecommunication (TMT) clients on mergers, acquisitions and other strategic moves as Vice President at Lazard, amongst the world’s most prolific financial advisory and asset management firms.

Jackie Stern joins Stash from the helm of Kixtar LLC, a marketing consultancy that partners with high-growth start-ups ranging from health tech to e-commerce. She launched Kixter after decades leading marketing and product innovation for massive consumer financial and media companies including E*TRADE, Citibank, SiriusXM, and Priceline. A proven marketing powerhouse, Stern transformed Citibank’s online and mobile experiences and put Priceline on the map with William Shatner’s award-winning campaign.  

Alongside these new appointments, Kimberley Meehan, who oversees all of Stash Operations (banking, brokerage, and customer operations), has been elevated to the executive team. A five-year veteran of Stash, she will continue to drive outstanding customer interactions with the millions of Americans that rely on the platform. In 2022, Meehan was listed amongst the Women in Fintech Powerlist.
