NEW YORK – June 8, 2022 – National financial services innovator Neighborhood Trust Financial Partners (Neighborhood Trust) welcomes Aliah Greene as Chair of its Board of Directors.
Aliah is the Co-Founder and current Chief Operating Officer of Percapita Group, LLC, a social impact FinTech providing under-served workers with access to products and services that support their financial needs. Greene brings two decades of financial services leadership and expertise to Neighborhood Trust’s efforts to make financial security possible for all workers.
“Aliah’s entrepreneurial spirit, financial services expertise, and commitment to financial justice make her the right board chair to lead us in our new era of national growth,” says Justine Zinkin, CEO, Neighborhood Trust. “We were looking for a strong alignment of values and a desire to create structural fixes to the workplace and financial services that perpetuate workers’ reliance on debt. Aliah embodies both qualities, and we’re delighted to welcome her to her new role as board chair.”
“The opportunity to use the insights from our work to help employers, nonprofits, banks and FinTechs better understand the unique financial challenges facing the workers they serve, and to push the marketplace to prioritize workers and be more accountable to their needs is exhilarating,” says Greene. “It’s also personal, meaningful work to me, and vital for the future of our country. By harnessing the power of FinTech, data, and philanthropy, we can improve the lives of individuals, strengthen institutions, and change the system to make financial security possible for all workers.”
Previously, Aliah was at Morgan Stanley for more than two decades, serving in finance, treasury, and risk management roles in the U.S. and the U.K. Most recently, Aliah was Managing Director, Head of Enterprise Risk Management and Analytics for the firm’s Wealth Management segment and Morgan Stanley Private Bank, N.A.
She serves on the boards of KEEN NYC, which provides free recreational activities for disabled and neurodivergent children, and the League Education and Treatment Center, which provides educational and support services for children and young adults with developmental or psychiatric challenges.
