Biography

After a 15 year career in corporate banking (RBS and Allied Irish Bank) dedicated to winning Irish, US and European client relationships, Dave McArdle took a role as a VP in Key Bank’s Credit unit (the poacher became game keeper). Two years on and despite a number of attractive offers from US banks, Dave caught the Seattle bug and has turned his attention to technology, specifically the up and coming fintech firm, Finagraph, where Dave serves as Director of Partnerships and Strategic Accounts. Why Finagraph ? It wasn’t a huge leap. Finagraph’s core area of expertise is software specifically designed for the commercial lending industry. The company’s technology enables banks to access client’s financial MI directly from their accounting system, then normalizes and analyzes the figures. Finagraph’s technology hugely streamlines the credit analysis and loan approval process for bank’s small business divisions. In his 15 years in corporate banking Dave witnessed numerous industries revolutionized by technology. Service industries such as travel, traditional retail, insurance and personal banking all were dramatically altered by online solutions. It is Dave’s opinion that commercial banking and finance is the next big shift and it is companies such as Finagraph that are leading the charge in this movement. The opportunity was too enticing to turn down. it doesn’t hurt that Finagraph’s owner (James Walter) shares Dave’s passion for small business and as Finagraph was perfecting their technology for the institutional market, development was already underway on the company’s next big thing: “Flight” With Flight, the newest Finagraph tool, financial data meets private activity feed. Finagraph is now taking the financial analysis available to banks and advisors and giving it back to the small business owner in mobile form.
