Leadership

Roger Lee

Co-founder & CEO

Paul Sawaya

Co-founder & CTO

When Roger tried to set up a 401(k) for the employees of his previous company, he found the entire process unnecessarily cumbersome for his small, busy team. He needed a solution that was simpler and more affordable than the big financial institutions could offer.

So, he teamed up with Paul to help take this frustrating experience and turn it into a company that truly addresses the barriers small business owners face as they attempt to grow their companies and support their employees.

Paul’s background in technology combined with Roger’s experience in finance and entrepreneurship made it possible to engineer a 401(k) dedicated to small businesses.

Our mission

We believe that everyone deserves access to a secure financial future.
In the United States, there’s a huge, quantifiable disparity in the earning and saving potential between those who have access to financial knowledge and those who don’t.

When it comes to 401(k)s, large financial institutions are incentivized to work with corporations who have thousands of employees and millions of dollars in assets so they can maximize profits from their services and fees. As a result, small business owners and their employees end up with the short end of the stick when it comes to retirement savings and financial planning. People shouldn’t have to choose between doing work they’re passionate about and financial security via “big company” benefits.

401(k)s are often only offered at larger corporations that have the HR departments and budgets to sustain them. At Human Interest, we focus exclusively on small businesses so that they can have an affordable 401(k) plan that suits their unique needs.

Our team

We are a diverse set of socially-minded professionals in marketing, engineering, finance, human resources, operations, sales, and more. Each of us has a track record of success in our given fields, and we all feel passionate about using our skills for a worthy cause.

We come from different places, have different backgrounds, and own different experiences, but we all come to work every day knowing we’re working on an important, complex problem together: helping people save for retirement at a critical time when pensions are going extinct and Social Security isn’t enough.
