2019 HW Vanguard: Ben Miller

SimpleNexus President and Chief Operating Officer

Ben Miller joined SimpleNexus in 2014, the same year the company was founded, and was tasked with scaling the startup’s business. And that’s just what Miller has done during his time with the company.

In the last five years, SimpleNexus has risen from startup to become a leader in digital mortgage technology. To date, SimpleNexus has connected its 21,000 active loan originators with 1.1 million borrowers and 65,000 Realtor partners to produce nearly five million loans totaling over $100 billion in volume.

As chief operating officer, Miller runs the operations side of the company, with responsibilities ranging from setting up strategic partnerships to managing implementations.

In the last year alone, Miller has led SimpleNexus to add 60 clients to its roster, bringing the total number of enterprise lenders using SimpleNexus to 223, including 15 of the top 25 retail lenders in the U.S.

SimpleNexus also saw 102% revenue growth in the fiscal year 2018 and has seen 1,405% growth over the last three years.

And the company is not done growing. SimpleNexus continues to steadily increase the number of loan applications it processes each month to nearly 40,000 per month.

The company has also grown its employee base substantially, so much so that the company needed a new headquarters to accommodate its growth, and bolstered its senior leadership team with the appointments of three vice presidents to support the company’s expanding roster of mortgage lender clients: vice president of customer success, vice president of finance, and vice president of product.

What has been your secret to success?

“The people at SimpleNexus have been the secret to our success. Our people are real difference makers because they believe in a shared vision and they live our core values of being hungry, innovative, vibrant and empathetic.”
