We’re pleased to announce that our CEO, Renaud Laplanche, was yesterday named a winner of Ernst & Young’s Venture Capital Award of Excellence. The EY Venture Capital Award of Excellence honors outstanding entrepreneurs who have benefited from venture capital funding. The winners were selected out of 50 nominees by an independent panel of judges, comprised of four leading venture capitalists from across the country based on factors including VC funding, equity and revenue growth, earnings, margins, and their founding stories.

Renaud was one of six winners of the award, alongside the founders and co-founders of Indeed, SkinMedica and Workday, Inc. He will accept the award at the EY Strategic Growth Forum and National Entrepreneur Of The Year Program in Palm Springs, Calif.

Our appreciation to Ernst & Young for recognizing Renaud’s leadership of Lending Club with this prestigious award.
