Fintech startup LenderClose today announced it has hired Brad Bach to serve as vice president of sales. Bach will concentrate on introducing more credit unions and community banks to the digital lending platform.
With API connections to every vendor it takes to originate a mortgage or HELOC, LenderClose gives loan officers immediate access to a comprehensive suite of reports and services – from credit scores and flood determinations to notary signing and county recorder services. The result is a streamlined and vastly accelerated underwriting process.
Since its launch in March 2016, LenderClose has added 100 lenders to its client list. The firm’s leadership recently announced a growth investment that will allow the company to add 25 employees in the next seven months.
Bach brings more than 15 years of marketing, sales and financial services experience to the LenderClose team. He has held mortgage and consumer lending roles with Wells Fargo and HSBC and served as a senior financial advisor for Principal Financial Group. In recent years, Bach has diversified his experience, contributing his marketing, sales and data analytics expertise to a leading triathlon bike manufacturer and a custom apparel startup.
“Brad’s consumer marketing expertise in combination with his systems integration experience will be a huge asset to LenderClose as we evolve the platform,” said LenderClose CEO Omar Jordan. “He also has a great sense of how important customer experience is to long-term success. Taking excellent care of our clients and the borrowers we collectively serve is a foundational value of our company culture, making Brad an ideal match for LenderClose.”
In addition to the lender-facing digital hub community lenders have used to grow their real estate lending programs, LenderClose will soon launch an online dashboard for borrowers. By logging into a secure portal branded with the lender’s logo, loan applicants will be able to monitor in real-time the underwriting and approval of their loans.
Community lenders interested in getting an up-close look at the LenderClose platform are encouraged to sign up for a demo at LenderClose.com. Executives from the fintech will also be exhibiting at the upcoming CUNA CFO Council Conference in Austin, Texas, May 20 – 23, 2018.
