WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Dec. 10, 2019 – OpenClose®, an industry-leading multi-channel loan origination system (LOS) and digital mortgage fintech provider, announced that its chief revenue officer (CRO), Vince Furey, has been selected by HousingWire as one of its 2019 Vanguard Award winners. This marks the fifth year that HousingWire has recognized executives in the housing finance industry for their outstanding leadership in the space.
“Our Vanguard Award is reserved for the true trailblazers in the housing industry, the visionaries that are leading the charge into the future. This year’s winners are the embodiment of that vision. In each corner of the housing industry, they are forging the path, setting the pace, and guiding housing into the next generation. And we couldn’t be prouder to honor them as Vanguards,” said HousingWire Managing Editor Ben Lane.
Furey was instrumental in helping boost OpenClose’s year-over-year revenue by more than 100 percent. Further, he played a key role in spearheading the OpenClose business strategy to offer its own digital POS solution, incorporating it with the company’s LenderAssist™ LOS platform and borrower direct portal, ConsumerAssist™. As a result, OpenClose is able to offer a comprehensive digital mortgage solution that is more efficient and cost effective than disparate offerings available on the market.
In addition, Furey helped develop a strategy to implement a RESTful API suite branded IntegrationAssist™, which provides seamless interaction with the OpenClose digital ecosystem. Ultimately, Furey’s efforts helped OpenClose’s LOS platform, POS system and PPE receive some of the highest Overall Satisfaction and Lender Loyalty Scores in the STRATMOR Group’s last two Technology Insight Study reports.
“I am honored to be recognized by HousingWire and extend congratulations to my fellow Vanguard Award winners,” stated Furey. “I am grateful for our amazing, innovative OpenClose team who make providing our lender partners modern technology exciting every single day.”
