UWM Promotes Mortgage Tech Vet to Chief Digital Officer

man-workingUnited Wholesale Mortgage's Justin Glass is moving up in the company's ranks: The Michigan-based lender promoted the veteran employee to the newly created role of chief digital officer (CDO).

Having been with UWM for eight years, Glass most recently served as SVP of business development. In his new role, he'll be responsible for the company's digital innovation and core digital platforms, including Web, mobile, customer relationship management, loan transaction systems, and future advances.

Glass is well acquainted with the digital space, having achieved recognition for his work as one the industry's top online originators. He also sits on the PROGRESS in Lending Association's Leader Advisory Board, which is made up of a group of leading business- and technology-savvy lenders.

The creation of a new digital-focused executive position is the latest in UWM's push to act as a trendsetter in the mortgage industry. The company recently launched its own mobile app, UMobile, which allows users to lock loans on the go, and also plans to introduce its new EASE transactional system in the coming weeks.

"At UWM, we have recognized this and have made it a priority to establish ourselves on the leading edge of innovation and are now taking this a step further. Justin Glass will lead the way as we accelerate our digital and technology investments."
