Even Surpasses $2.5 Billion in On-Demand Pay, Strengthens Leadership Team to Improve Financial Health of Fortune 1000 Workers

Even, a leading earned wage access platform designed to provide financial stability and flexibility to US employees, today announced a key milestone: It has now provided more than $2.5B in on-demand pay to its members. On-demand pay, which Even has provided since 2017, helps people cover expenses between paychecks while avoiding overdraft fees, credit card debt, and payday loans, and is part of a platform that also includes tools for planning, budgeting, and saving. To help accelerate adoption among Fortune 1000 companies and their employees, Even also announced that it is strengthening its executive team by hiring seasoned go-to-market leaders, Preston Clark as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) and Samantha Goldman as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).

Gartner Research predicts that by 2023, at least 20% of companies with majority hourly workforces will offer flexible, earned wage access. “The industry is at an inflection point and we need to scale quickly by building the strongest go-to-market team in our industry. Our goal: To ensure that Fortune 1000 employers offer on-demand pay in a way that actually improves the financial health of their workforce,” said Even CEO David Baga. “Our on-demand pay helps members with expenses that come up between paychecks — like childcare, groceries, or car repairs — so they can avoid overdraft fees and payday loans. But we also provide powerful and intuitive tools to help people plan, budget, and save.” According to Baga, Even already boasts a high engagement rate among members. On any given week, 90% of its members use Even.
