What is something lenders/lending industry have to deal with that you want to fix?
I hear it everyday, “we do it because it’s the way we’ve always done it.”
The lending world is evolving every single day. I get the opportunity to work with over 400 partners here at LenderClose, learning more and more about things we can help change. If there’s one thing I can do, it is help financial leaders understand that things are evolving and we have to be able to change our process, change our way of thought, to achieve success for ourselves and those around us.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
My favorite part of my job is helping people. I have tailored my whole life around helping others, and I have so much fun helping the teams that we work with as well as our partners. I find so much joy in helping financial institutions achieve a level of efficiency that they may have never thought they could accomplish.
What hobbies, volunteering or passion projects do you do outside of work?
My wife and I have three children that are all very active in school and the outdoors, and I love attending their activities. I enjoy watching my boys wrestle and my daughter is an incredibly talented artist. Another frequent hobby of mine is golfing with my friends and family.
I am also on the board for a non profit called Operation Impact 22. Having spent nearly 11 years in the Marine Corps, I have a deep passion for helping veterans, law enforcement officers, and first responders overcome challenges they may be facing physically and mentally. Getting to help those who have sacrificed for us helps my own personal healing.
