BOSTON. Knox Financial, a fintech company focused on real estate investors, announced that it has appointed Matt Marr to lead the company’s national expansion as director of development.
Marra joined Knox Financial in May 2020 as VP of Development when Knox was only available to Boston residents. Under Marra’s leadership, Knox began operations in cities in Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Arizona and Texas. Marra has been instrumental in recruiting more than 15 new employees across six states and expanding the Knox Frictionless Ownership Platform investment portfolio to over $ 100 million.
“We are seeing incredible demand for Knox, not only in the markets where we currently operate, but also in the US,” said Marra. “As a development director, I look forward to rapidly expanding the markets in which Knox operates and increasing the value of Knox’s investment property portfolio next year.”
Marra brings to Knox a wealth of experience in scaling fast-growing tech startups. He joined Uber as one of the company’s first 40 employees, initially serving as Operations and Logistics Manager for the Greater Boston area. During this time, he launched and scaled Uber Black, TAXI, SUV and uberX product offerings in the Boston market. In 2016, Marra became Uber’s head of US automotive solutions to lead operational, marketing and programmatic negotiations with participating third-party auto lenders, rental companies, dealerships and manufacturers, reporting to the CFO. He left Uber in January 2018 and used his vast market and operations experience to advise New England founders and build a portfolio of business angels.
“As Knox continues to grow, we wanted to have a leader in our C-Suite who truly understands how to scale a technology company quickly while delivering a consistently great experience across all of our markets,” said David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Knox Financial. “Matt was instrumental in the growth of Uber in the US and was an important reason why Knox was able to grow so successfully during the year when we all faced extreme challenges. I am confident that with his expanded role as Director of Development, he will make Knox a household name in US cities. ”
Knox has been named one of the 2021 HousingWire Tech100 for “creating technology solutions that make owning investment properties as easy as owning stocks.” Knox recently announced $ 10 million in Series A funding and will use that capital to fund expansion in U.S. cities in 2021.
