Hansen was hand-selected by the editorial board from HousingWire magazine to receive the honor, recognizing his vital contributions to the company while guiding SimpleNexus to exceptional growth in 2018.
“As the Vanguards award program continues to grow and to be more successful, the entry point gets tighter. These winners are truly the best Vanguards in the mortgage finance industry, and they all deserve the highest honor in the space,” said HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney.
Under Hansen’s leadership in 2018, SimpleNexus added 51 new enterprise clients, announced an official integration partnership with Ellie Mae, was named a Top 500 company by Inc. Magazine, and raised $20 million in growth capital from Insight Venture Partners.
“It is a great honor to be acknowledged with these amazing industry trailblazers,” stated Matt Hansen, SimpleNexus founder & CEO. Matt added, “This award is a testament to the wonderful clients that we have and the faith that they have put in SimpleNexus for their digital mortgage needs. None of what we accomplished in 2018 at SimpleNexus would have been possible without them.”
