SimpleNexus President and COO Ben Miller Honored as 2019 HousingWire Vanguard Award Recipient

Our President and COO Ben Miller has been named a 2019 Housingwire Vanguard Award winner. Now in its fifth year, the HW Vanguard Awards™ program recognizes executives in the housing finance industry for their outstanding leadership in the space.

Miller was recognized as a savvy business strategist who has greased the wheels for SimpleNexus’ rapid, five-year rise from startup to digital mortgage technology frontrunner. During his tenure, Miller has efficiently scaled the company, expanded partnerships and welcomed key talent. Miller’s contributions enabled SimpleNexus to achieve 102 percent revenue growth in fiscal year 2018 and 1,405 percent growth over the last three years.

“The people at SimpleNexus have been the true secret to our success,” said Miller. “Our people are real difference makers, because they share a vision to enable lenders and borrowers to easily complete mortgage loans from anywhere, and they live our core values of being hungry, innovative, vibrant and empathetic.”

“Our Vanguard Award is reserved for the true trailblazers in the housing industry, the visionaries that are leading the charge into the future,” said HousingWire Managing Editor Ben Lane. “In each corner of the housing industry, they are forging the path, setting the pace and guiding housing into the next generation.” 

To date, SimpleNexus has connected its more than 21,000 active loan originators with 1.3 million borrowers and 89,000 real estate partners to produce loans totaling over $200 billion in volume. Last year the company added 60 clients to its roster, bringing the total number of enterprise lenders SimpleNexus empowers to “do more” to more than 260, including 15 of the top 25 retail lenders in the United States.
