Iowa-based LenderClose, a fintech startup company empowering local lenders through its digital platform that streamlines the lending and underwriting process, has announced the addition of sales associate Mari Jo Massanet to its expanding team.
Massanet will support the LenderClose sales team in achieving its aggressive growth goals. Her responsibilities include demonstrating the LendClose platform to credit union and community bank leaders, attracting new lender accounts, as well as onboarding and training new clients.
“Mari Jo’s sales experience and her strong ability to understand and deliver on customer expectations will prove invaluable as we continue to grow our client base,” Omar Jordan, LenderClose CEO, said. “She will form an important bridge between our sales team and our partners – ensuring new clients enjoy a smooth onboarding experience and are set up for success with our platform.”
Prior to LenderClose, Massanet held various sales roles for Ingersoll Rand in both Des Moines, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska. In her most recent position as a service sales engineer for the compressed air division, Massanet’s duties included collaborating with sales engineers to create solutions and proactively provide maintenance programs that best fit customers’ operations.
The web-based LenderClose platform uses API connections to bring everything lenders require to originate a mortgage or HELOC—from credit scores and appraisals to loan documents and recording services—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.
