ATHENS, Ga., Sept. 5, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — FormFree® today announced that Chief Technical Officer Brian Francis has been recognized as a 2019 HousingWire HW Insiders Award honoree. Now in its fourth year, the HW Insiders Award program honors housing industry professionals who are “the unsung heroes propelling their companies to success.”
Francis was awarded for overseeing the design and development of FormFree’s groundbreaking automated asset, income and employment verification products, which have been shown to reduce lenders’ average time-to-close by up to 10 days. Most recently, Francis played a key role in developing FormFree’s patent-pending method for verifying loan applicants’ employment and income history through electronic data extraction, natural-language processing and artificial intelligence.
“Brian’s technological savvy has helped FormFree bring numerous digital mortgage ‘firsts’ to fruition and has kept our asset, income and employment verification solutions steps ahead of the competition,” said FormFree Founder and CEO Brent Chandler. “He has played an integral role in helping FormFree bring revolutionary speed and accuracy to borrower verification for more than 1,000 lenders nationwide.”
“Our Insiders grow more difficult to choose each year as their talent and impacts on the mortgage and real estate industry continue to blow us away,” said HousingWire Associate Editor Kelsey Ramírez. “This year’s winners are truly the secret weapons of their industry and continue to push their companies to greatness and move markets forward.”
This year’s 50 HW Insiders Award winners were peer nominated and selected by HousingWire’s editorial board based on their accomplishments over the last 12 months.
