US fintech LenderClose has appointed Martina Schubert to the key position of chief technology officer.
Schubert joins LenderClose, which equips credit unions and community banks with innovative workflows and process automation, with more than 25 years in information technology leadership experience.
In her most recent role with DLL Financial Solutions Partner, a global vendor finance company, Schubert was part of two executive leadership teams. Those teams were responsible for managing the enterprise-wide strategic and tactical planning process for information technology.
“The fintech sector is the birthplace of monumental innovation,” said Schubert. “Helping credit unions and community banks more fully experience the game-changing potential of technology, especially in the mission-critical area of real estate lending, is something I’m really looking forward to.”
“By injecting speed and efficiency into the traditional process, LenderClose is making hometown financial institutions the best option for more people. That mission is very energising to me.”
Schubert’s expertise spans several skill sets, including project management, team and executive leadership, and global vendor management and inter-departmental strategy development.
Her professional achievements include driving customer retention and growth, improving loss ratio and delivering large-scale IT solutions.
Schubert has managed budgets in excess of $14 million, as well as resources spanning multiple corporate segments. She has also created IT applications capable of reducing costs by millions.
At LenderClose, Schubert will make executive decisions that align technological vision with the company’s needs to positively impact current and future operations.
Omar Jordan, chief executive officer and founder of LenderClose, said: “A proven leader in developing and managing teams to execute strategic objectives, Martina has the skill and expertise to make a meaningful impact within the lending community marketplace.”
“We are confident she will be a valuable member of the executive team, helping to shape a technical strategy that supports the LenderClose mission to keep lending local.”
The arrival of Schubert follows the appointment of Samantha Paxson to the LendClose board of directors.
