Wyndham Capital Mortgage, a leading Fintech Mortgage Lender, announced today that Founder and CEO Jeff Douglas was named a winner of the 2020 HousingWire Tech Trendsetter award. The Tech Trendsetter award recognizes the most impactful and innovative technology leaders serving the housing economy.
“Our Tech Trendsetters award recognizes a group of leaders who were critical to the outstanding performance of housing and real estate during this pandemic, finding innovative solutions when everything changed on a dime,” said HousingWire Editor in Chief Sarah Wheeler. “We’re very proud to celebrate their achievements and honor the impact they’ve had at such a crucial time.”
HousingWire’s 2020 Tech Trendsetters are made up of product and technology leaders who have been indispensable in bringing innovative tech solutions to market for housing industry clients. Similar to the HousingWire Tech100, which honors the 100 most innovative companies in mortgage and real estate tech, Tech Trendsetters recognize the people that drive innovation for their mortgage and real estate clients.
With the creation of the Fintech Mortgage Lender concept in 2020, Jeff brought to the industry the idea that with Intelligent Automation, Deep Data Utilization, a Perpetual Marketing Operating System and a strong Corporate Culture, Wyndham Capital - and the mortgage industry - can bring themselves into the next stage of what it means to be a home lender.
These contributions have led to the best year in the company's 20-year history, with more than double the number of funded loans already in 2020 compared to 2019. Not to mention, Jeff has helped usher in headcount growth, funded amount and efficiency data that is unprecedented in the history of the company he founded and continues to lead. Under his leadership, Wyndham Capital is set up for scalable, sustainable growth in the future through technology-driven solutions while having an eye on changing the industry at the same time.
“In its second year, the 2020 Tech Trendsetters once again surpassed all expectations as the housing industry rose up to meet unprecedented challenges,” HousingWire Magazine Editor Kelsey Ramírez said. “This year’s Tech Trendsetters represent shapers whose innovative solutions continue to inspire the industry.”
