Arun Mohan was integral to the inception of Credit Karma Home in 2017, where he spent the months prior to launch researching, strategizing and pitching leadership on why Credit Karma was well positioned to offer its members an optimized mortgage shopping experience. Mohan’s research resulted in the launch of Credit Karma’s Home Buying Power tool. Since its launch less than a year ago, the tool has helped more than 4 million members unlock their home buying power. In 2019, Mohan made significant inroads in evolving the tool into an end-to-end digital home-buying platform, which promises efficiencies, certainty and transparency for both consumers and lenders. Mohan’s visionary thinking and expertise in product development has been a key driver for Credit Karma Home’s success to date. In his current role, he hand-crafts the company’s innovative home products, aiding more than 100 million members to homeownership. His desire to make meaningful change in an industry that has seen little innovation is what fuels his team to set ambitious goals, and enables his leadership to back them.
