Tim Ranzetta is the founder and president of Student Lending Analytics (SLA), an independent research and advisory firm focused on finding the best lenders for students. While researching student loan options for several of his 14 nieces and nephews, he identified the need for an independent, analytical and objective source of information to increase the transparency of the student lending market. SLA advises financial aid administrators on lender selection by employing a rigorous and comprehensive process augmented by proprietary customer research on lender performance. SLA’s research has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, US News and World Report and Chronicle of Higher Education. SLA is not affiliated with any student lenders or other financial service firms.

Prior to founding Student Lending Analytics, Tim was President and Chief Operating Officer of Equilar, a leading compensation research and consulting firm. The success of Equilar’s databases and research increased the transparency of executive pay and benefit levels. At Equilar, he built the sales, research and consulting practices, which saw significant growth during his tenure from five to forty employees. Previously, Tim served in leadership roles with fast growing businesses, including co-founding a leading information security company which was acquired in 2001. Tim began his career as a management consultant with Bain & Company and later worked as a research analyst at Massachusetts Financial Services. Tim earned his M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a B.S. in Finance with Distinction from the McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia.
