Fintech startup LenderClose, which provides digital platforms to transform the lending process, has announced the addition of Benjamin Dinkins as Sales Executive to its growing team of industry experts. Dinkins will focus on building relationships with credit unions and community banks, introducing them to the competitive differentiation that comes from integrating LenderClose.
Dinkins has extensive contract negotiation and financial services sales experience for Fortune 100 firms. He joins LenderClose from SkySon Financial, where he served as regional sales manager. Prior to his position with SkySon Financial, Dinkins held a variety of roles, including risk management, procurement, data analytics, and relationship management with Nationwide, Syngenta, and Morelity.
“Benjamin’s dedication, his passion for building strong customer relationships and his years of experience selling software in the financial services industry will be tremendous assets as we continue to grow our client base,” said Omar Jordan, CEO of LenderClose. “As the company accelerates at the rate we anticipate, it will be critical to stay true to our core set of values. We believe in a simple formula: Take care of our clients, and it all comes full circle. Benjamin has everything it takes to ensure LenderClose’s client-first experience is felt from the very first interaction.”
The web-based LenderClose platform uses API connections to bring everything lenders require to originate a mortgage or HELOC–from credit scores and income verification to title reports and notary signings–under a single access point. This allows lending staff to run 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 12 to 18 months. In addition to the lender-facing digital-hub that 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.
