Fintech boss Mitchell Johnson joins digital mortgage exchange MAXEX as Chief Technology Officer.
Johnson, whose career spans more than 25 years, will oversee the company’s product strategy, data, security, and technology. According to MAXEX, the move comes at a crucial time for the company, which previously had a record $ 18 billion outside of the agency. Johnson will play a key role in scaling MAXEX’s digital mortgage exchange and platform.
“MAXEX is an exciting, fast-growing fintech company uniquely positioned in the largest credit market in the world – the US mortgage market,” said Johnson. “MAXEX solves a number of highly complex and obsolete problems in the way mortgage loans are traded. The company has made amazing strides in increasing liquidity in the US real estate markets and I am delighted to join and lead this talented technology team. “
Prior to MAXEX, Johnson was Chief Technology Officer at eVestment, a NASDAQ company originally supported by Insight Venture Partners. He has also held executive positions at Equifax, Grant Thornton and Delta Air Lines.
“MAXEX has been fortunate to attract exceptional talent at all levels of our business as more and more people recognize both the complexity and importance of the problems we are solving,” said Bill Decker, President and Chief Operating Officer of MAXEX. “Mitchell shares the same bold vision and passion for problem-solving as the rest of our leadership team and has a proven track record of leading high-performing technology companies in similarly complex organizations.”
