Provide’s Chief Credit & Operational Risk Officer, Sean Simon, recognized on Columbus 40 Under 40 list
The Columbus Business First 40 Under 40 Awards judges candidates on their career accomplishments, volunteer activity, community impact, and letters of recommendation, among other factors. Sean earned this recognition for starting the Simon Family Giving Fund in 2021, creating Credit and Operations teams that work in unison with the Sales team, and helping create and establish Provide’s Columbus office.
Simon joined Provide in May 2017 as director of credit, employee #12, and was the first employee in Ohio. Since then Simon has helped build out Provide’s operational headquarters in Columbus while also building a Credit and Sales team centered around a culture of collaboration, empathy, and humility.
“Everyone at Provide is proud and excited to see Sean so deservingly included on the 40 Under 40 list,” said Provide’s Chief Business Officer, Andrew Bennett. “Nobody at Provide has contributed more than Sean to the company’s presence and growth in Central Ohio. He’s as powerful an advocate for the city of Columbus as he is for Provide — and this recognition is yet another reminder of how lucky we are to have him in such a critical leadership role for our team.”
Simon will be honored for his accomplishment alongside other honorees during the annual 40 Under 40 Awards Gala on Thursday, May 25.
