2020 HW Insider: Shawn Ansley

Vice Capital Markets Managing Director

Shawn Ansley

Over the last year, Shawn Ansley has automated many of the firm’s day-to-day processes to improve operational efficiency and eliminate opportunities for human error.

He is also responsible for several recent LOS integrations, including last year’s integrations with Lending QB and OpenClose, that allow information to seamlessly flow back-and-forth between Vice Capital and clients. Ansley has also revolutionized the company’s pull-through modeling for more accurate pipeline management and has performed more than 570 semi-annual individual client analyses. Ansley is responsible for developing APIs with both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, providing Vice Capital with the ability to pull pricing from and commit loans with the government-sponsored enterprises directly, thereby dramatically speeding up this critical process. Thanks to the automated systems, enhanced connectivity and improved data access that Ansley established, the firm was able to confidently steer its clients through the market chaos brought on by COVID-19.
