Eric Woersching Joins Rho Board of Directors

Woershing has been a board member and chair of the audit committee at Palantir Technologies since 2022. Prior to that, he led corporate development at EasyPost, was a General Partner at Initialized Capital, and was a portfolio manager and head trader at Peter Thiel’s macro funds, Thiel Macro and Clarium Capital, from 2008 to 2016. 

“Eric has been a thoughtful and invaluable advisor to the company since its inception,” said Rho CEO and Co-Founder Everett Cook. “He has a diverse blend of macroeconomic, operating, and investing expertise that gives him a uniquely nuanced point of view for a business like Rho. We’re excited to bring him onto the board.”

Woersching believes Rho’s unique vision of building high-quality financial software on top of a world-class business banking platform, backed by premium customer service, positions the company to unlock a massive market opportunity.

“The atomic unit for every corporate finance workflow is a transaction that lands in a bank ledger,” said Woersching. “Very few businesses operate without using a corporate card, paying invoices, or managing employee expenses. Rho is tackling the difficult part of the equation head-on – the business banking platform infrastructure that truly integrates these connected processes – setting the company up to deliver unparalleled customer experiences.” 

Woersching’s appointment follows several recent Rho announcements, including: 

  • A new partnership and jointly branded solution with Navan, the all-in-one travel and expense super app, that helps companies simplify their finance stack and save time and money using the Rho Corporate Card. 
  • New platform capabilities, including employee mileage reimbursements, automatic duplicate invoice detection, and new in-platform enhancements featured in Rho’s 2024 Spring Release
  • Tech:NYC Founder House, a Tech:NYC initiative supported by Rho that offers early-stage tech founders in NYC free resources, coworking space, and opportunities to collaborate with peers, investors, and operators.
