Portland – Apr 21, 2020 – Today, Qualtik Founder & CEO Mark Prior announced the appointment of Steve Barham to the position of Chief Revenue Officer. Barham, an experienced technology growth executive, will oversee sales execution and revenue strategy for Qualtik.
“Qualtik allows real estate investors to analyze risk and to help navigate these increasingly volatile market conditions. The timing is perfect to have Steve on board to help us build a world-class sales organization,” said Mr. Prior. “He has played a vital role in the growth of numerous pioneering companies in the FinTech space, and he helped lead one of the fastest revenue-growth stories of the last decade, LinkedIn.”
“I’m impressed by how well-positioned Qualtik is to disrupt the global real estate lending ecosystem, and how they’ve already achieved significant traction in terms of product and revenue,” said Mr. Barham. “Companies like Plaid, Brex, and DocuSign have reinvented their respective industries. At Qualtik, we’re revolutionizing the way commercial real estate lenders and investors manage their portfolios. Carta transformed an industry where spreadsheets were the dominant solution. We have a similar vision for modernizing the real estate lending industry.“
Steve brings a proven track record of growing early-stage technology organizations. As LinkedIn’s first expatriate, he led the growth of LinkedIn Talent Solutions throughout the Asia Pacific region, building teams and offices in seven countries while scaling revenue from $0 to $140M in less than five years. Also, he served as Head of Sales Effectiveness for LinkedIn’s global sales teams.
Mr. Barham’s FinTech experience includes co-founding and leading sales and marketing at mPower.com, the internet’s first online investment advisory platform (later acquired by Morningstar, NASDAQ: MORN). He also held senior leadership positions and was responsible for revenue and customer success at Yodlee (NASDAQ: YDLE), a pioneer in financial data aggregation and analytics.
Mr. Barham is also an active member of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Pacific Northwest. He served as Investment Partner at Seven Peaks Ventures, an early-stage technology venture capital firm, and co-founded Riff, Oregon Entrepreneur’s Network 2018 ‘Early Stage Company of the Year.’
