Akron, OH, USA, Aug, 2021 -- Drips, the founders of Conversational Texting(R), announced Erik Lamb has joined as Executive Vice President of Product and will focus on new product innovation and excellence as the company plans for strategic growth over the next several years.
Erik joins Drips after senior roles as Director of Product Management at SoFi, a financial services company that helps individuals achieve financial independence, and VP of Product at Finicity, a Mastercard company that offers a banking platform to connect customers’ financial data to mobile apps. While at SoFi, he successfully launched the first "Crypto Rewards" program for a U.S. based credit card and helped increase users and assets under management.

We’re fortunate to add a seasoned leader like Erik who brings a wealth of product development knowledge to help us achieve our growth goals. Erik has consistently built successful product portfolios in his career, and we look forward to him doing the same here at Drips."
