Meet Our Founders
Shawn Budde and Mike Armstrong, the founders of Ensemblex, first worked together twenty years ago in the sub-prime card business at Capital One. Over the course of a few years they grew the profitability of the business by 60%+.
A decade later they reunited at ZestFinance to build the first consumer lending business using machine learning in marketing, underwriting and collections to drive industry leading loan economics.
They’ve reunited again to form Ensemblex. They bring the power of their experience in lending and machine learning to a wide range of clients, from startups to market leaders.
