She will be responsible for the growth and performance of the financial technology company, which has processed more than $26 billion in private student loan requests.

“I am honored and thrilled to lead CampusDoor,” said Ms. Parrish. “It is a privilege to steward our mission of educational access for all. I look forward to advancing our platform to make it even easier for lenders to improve the lives of students and their families.”

In 2017, CampusDoor was acquired by Incenter LLC, a family of companies whose solutions help banking and specialty finance organizations optimize processes and improve performance.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Sara to our top leadership team,” said Bruno Pasceri, President, Incenter. “Her vision for meeting the needs of Generation Z borrowers, her deep knowledge of the lending and fintech spaces, and her inspirational leadership all position her for great success.”

Previously Senior Vice President of Client and Product Management, Ms. Parrish joined CampusDoor six years ago and has been overseeing business and product development, client relationships, finance and strategic initiatives.
