Chris McEntee, Intercontinental Exchange president of ICE mortgage services

Since Intercontinental Exchange first started considered entering the residential mortgage industry, Chris McEntee provided the vision for the business.

As president of ICE Mortgage Services, his mission is to make the mortgage production process easier and more transparent for all industry stakeholders. In three short years, McEntee spearheaded ICE’s acquisitions of MERSCORP and Simplifile, which are playing a critical role in ICE’s goal to digitally transform the residential mortgage market. MERSCORP has two platforms that provide infrastructure for the transition to a paperless mortgage market: the MERS System and the MERS eRegistry. The acquisition of Simplifile, an electronic recording services provider in the mortgage industry, gave ICE access to large mortgage networks, connecting originators, settlement agents, servicers and counties. McEntee is now integrating the teams into the ICE culture and infrastructure.
