John Sanders Managing Partner, CEO

John’s dedication to our clients and to Bridgeforce is the reason why our team works as an extension of yours. His experience with project leadership has driven the bold success of hundreds of financial institutions since he founded Bridgeforce more than 20 years ago.

For more than 25 years, John has relied on his extensive industry background and project leadership to navigate through some of the most complex regulatory and compliance challenges for clients, resulting in recognition and accolades from compliance and business executives.

As CEO and a long-time industry leader, John is familiar with all aspects of the financial industry—and brings deep knowledge on topics from underwriting to digital implementations to investment strategies. John’s genuine personal approach and leadership qualities, as well as his willingness to work shoulder-to-shoulder with clients, are the driving force behind the company’s reputation for delivering successful client experiences.

A seasoned entrepreneur, John has been directly involved in five start-up companies, and serves as an advisor to numerous businesses that have gone from ideas to success.

More recently, John has worked closely with several large financial institutions on various strategic and tactical initiatives in support of FCRA and SCRA. This includes everything from full end-to-end credit reporting management, standing up best-in-class shared services/”Center of Excellence” functions, governance and oversight, and execution of enhancement plans.

John and his family live in Delaware, and between all the hard work involved in leading Bridgeforce, he enjoys being out on the river in his boat and pursuing his passion for drumming.
