About Us

A Company Dedicated to Advancing Banking

The Mission

Narmi is a superior mobile and online banking platform for regional and community financial institutions (RCFIs). Banking through these digital channels hasn’t changed in years and has become an antiquated, transactional experience when it should be a high engagement, data-driven experience.

There are over 10,000 RCFIs in the United States today. Narmi empowers them to better attract, engage, and retain customers through its best-in-class online and mobile banking platform. With Narmi’s help, RCFIs will be able to better compete with larger institutions and challenger banks to create a more diverse and engaging financial ecosystem.

The Story

Nikhil Lakhanpal and Chris Griffin met at Georgetown University in 2009. Together, they led the Georgetown University Alumni & Student Federal Credit Union as CEO and CIO, respectively. While serving these roles, they became aware of the sub-par online and mobile banking offerings utilized by the majority of regional and community financial institutions. Nikhil and Chris felt they did not have the right technology available to retain and engage their customer base. Over seven years later and after gaining experience at some of the largest banks in the world, Nikhil and Chris realized the problems they faced at Georgetown are more prevalent than ever, and began Narmi to tackle them.
