In the fast-paced world of financial services, having a professional who thrives in dynamic environments can make all the difference. Meet Japen Clark, a seasoned Loan Officer at SoFi, whose two decades of origination and management experience have proven to be the driving force behind his ability to adapt, tailor solutions, and support members with their financial needs. We had the opportunity to sit down with Japen and learn about his role and how he supports our members!
Tell us about your role and how you support our members.
I am currently a Loan Officer and I bring over 20 years of origination and management experience to the role. This experience has given me the ability to adjust quickly to changing environments and circumstances to be able to provide our members with the best solution to their needs. Time is often not on our side and the ability to adapt to change and tailor a loan quickly can mean the difference between keeping the member happy and closing the loan or losing the deal.
How would you describe the biggest impact your role makes on people?
I love that I get to play a part in our borrowers’ financial success from purchasing their first home to refinancing to put themselves in a better position financially. What we do here is more than just a job. SoFi has so many programs and resources to aid borrowers and it makes a very big difference in the world we live in. I am very proud to be a part of that every day.
What is your favorite part about working at SoFi?
I would have to say, it is the people that work here. I have enjoyed working with and learning from some of the best in the business since I started in March. The opportunities here are endless and I am excited to be a part of a company that encourages growth, advancement and most of all teamwork.
Just for fun, what would your family say is the most unique thing about you?
I am comfortable in most circles and I can find common ground and relate with most people on some level. I’ve been to over 500 Grateful Dead shows (starting when I was 7 years old) so I’ve met people from all walks of life and love hearing and being a part of their stories. Whether it’s work or in my personal life, I cherish the relationships that we form – short and long term.
Thank you, Japen, for your dedication to our members' financial prosperity and well-being. We are so lucky to have employees who embody the essence of SoFi's commitment to its members' financial well-being.
