OpenClose Honors Kathy Olsen and April Cave on International Women’s Day

—Celebrating two exceptional OpenClose family members for industry leadership—

West Palm Beach, Fla.; March 8, 2022 To mark International Women’s Day 2022, OpenClose®, the leading fintech provider of residential mortgage software solutions for banks, credit unions and mortgage lenders, is celebrating the achievements of Kathy Olsen, Director of Customer Support Services and April Cave, Director of Implementation Services.

Olsen was recognized in December 2021 by Mortgage Professional America as an Elite Woman. Olsen joined OpenClose in 2010 and has served with increased responsibility across several roles for the company. Her leadership and contributions to the success of OpenClose are remarkable. During the last several years the company has grown and taken on more customers. Olsen and her team have continuously met increased customer demand and maintained the highest-quality customer service for OpenClose.

In October 2021, shortly after Cave became a new mother, she was promoted to Director of Implementation Services where she leads the OpenClose implementation team and the overall implementation strategy for the company’s suite of digital lending solutions. In 2020, Cave was recognized by National Mortgage Professional as a 40 Under 40 Influential Achiever. Since Cave’s promotion, OpenClose has experienced even greater levels of efficiency in driving bank, credit union and mortgage lender customers, of varying loan volumes and configuration needs, to faster ‘go live’ dates. Cave effectively shares her product knowledge and insight (remotely and in-person) so that customers become more thorough subject-matter experts than before she stepped into this role.

“I am proud to call these women friends and colleagues. Their industry acumen and dedication to OpenClose are unmatched,” said JP Kelly, president and co-founder of OpenClose. “It is family members like Kathy and April that are helping OpenClose to meet and achieve our aggressive growth targets in the industry.”

OpenClose was recently recognized as one of the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in America, earning a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 List that has also featured Microsoft, Patagonia, Intuit and Under Armour as previous list honorees.
