Vince Furey has more than 25 years of senior-level banking experience and an extensive background in national sales, lending technology, operations, credit, secondary marketing and compliance to go with it.
Prior to joining OpenClose, Furey founded Ovation7, a national consulting and business services firm. While he was running that company, he provided C-level outsourced solutions and advisory services for the banking and financial services industries with a specialization in CIO/CTO-level technology consulting, business development, loan delivery and strategic planning. Prior to that, he held senior leadership positions in retail, wholesale, and correspondent sales and operations at Mellon Bank, Bank One and Pinnacle Financial Corp.
Under Furey’s leadership, OpenClose already has at least a 100% uptick in revenue, compared to 2018. Furey has spearheaded a business strategy to offer its own POS digital mortgage technology, integrating it closely with their consumer direct portal, ConsumerAssist. This allows OpenClose to offer an end-to-end digital mortgage solution. With Furey being key to the accomplishment, OpenClose’s LOS platform, POS system and PPE received the highest Overall Satisfaction and Lender Loyalty Score’s in STRATMOR’s last two Technology Insight Study reports.
Furey played a key role in the business strategy to implement and make available a RESTful API suite that was launch in November 2018. One of OpenClose’s core goals is to create elevated efficiency levels and reduce lenders’ cost per loan. As a lender’s business model changes, they have new needs and often must flex with shifting marketplace conditions.
