Emerge Financial founder leaving

The founder of financial wellness company Emerge will step away later this month to pursue other options. Jonathan Harrison launched Emerge in 2009 as a nonprofit social enterprise. The venture last year acquired locally based socially responsible lender Contigo Financial and moved its headquarters here.

In Jonathan's words, "honestly, it was a difficult decision to leave, but the company is finally at a place where I feel I can transition to my next big adventure - as yet unknown but ideas percolating daily. It has been great getting to work with so many of you and I appreciate your support of me and Emerge."
