Stephen Fusco becomes the newest Advisor to SOLO

PayPal Exec: "GoldenKey empowers both homebuyers and agents"

Today, GoldenKey announced that PayPal VP Stephen Fusco has officially joined the GoldenKey team as an Advisor. 

"This partnership with GoldenKey places me right at the intersection of my passions for improving buyer experience and breaking down barriers for sellers. Advising GoldenKey is a perfect fit," says Fusco. "GoldenKey empowers both homebuyers and agents."

Stephen is a veteran joining GoldenKey's veteran-led team. A Duke Navy ROTC graduate, Stephen spent four years as a Marine officer. Following his service, he received an MBA from UCLA and spent six years at Citigroup leading teams responsible for marketing, strategy, and retail banking. Stephen currently leads PayPal’s North American Distribution efforts, and he was recently named one of Silicon Valley’s "40 Under 40" rising stars.

"GoldenKey is thrilled to work with a leader who shares our vision and lives our values," says GoldenKey Founder and CEO Tommy Sowers.  "I’ve known Steve for 20 years. His perspective as a veteran leader and his experience integrating consumer feedback across North America are precisely the inputs we’re looking for as we refine GoldenKey's online marketplace. His insight into scaling globally will continue to shape GoldenKey's growth for years."

By unbundling real estate, GoldenKey offers buyers a full 3% rebate on a home purchase and empowers agents to work on their own terms – the services they love, on the schedule they want, at the prices they set.  GoldenKey's recent pilot launch in Ft. Lauderdale, FL has validated the model as real estate agents flock to GoldenKey's online marketplace to offer à la carte services to buyers. The GoldenKey Founders bring decades of multi-sector leadership and clear vision to GoldenKey, which is rapidly closing out its seed round of investment.
