Henry Cason Joins FinLocker as CEO

St. Louis-based FinLocker, a financial technology startup, has hired a mortgage industry veteran as its new CEO.

The startup said Tuesday it has hired Henry Cason to its CEO post. Cason most recently was senior vice president and head of digital products at federal mortgage loan company Fannie Mae. Cason joined Fannie Mae in 1993 and was its chief data officer prior to his most recent role.

Cason will replace FinLocker co-founder Peter Esparrago as CEO. Esparrago will become FinLocker’s executive chairman and “continue to lead key strategic business relationships,” officials said.
