2020 HW Vanguard: Ike Suri

FundingShield, Chairman and CEO

Ike Suri, Chairman and CEO, FundingShield

Ike Suri is a successful global entrepreneur with a track record as a hands-on owner, operator, mentor and executive with the ability to set the vision and execute to deliver success. 

His experience as a senior executive and principal in technology and numerous technology-related industries—such as fintech, human capital management and media—gives him the ability to envision and build enterprise value. 

Suri identified the unique opportunity to fill a void in the mortgage industry, where a lack of visibility in managing fraud and risk existed. He created a disruptive fintech solution to provide the industry with real-time, intelligent, actionable data to prevent title and wire fraud risk to deter from first-party fraud and cyber-based, third-party threats. 

Under Suri’s leadership, FundingShield has been able to onboard strategic partners and clients to participate and deliver industry-specific, client-centric solutions that are scaleable, malleable, cloud-based and available at the transaction level with loss coverage. 

He has invested, cultivated and built a team to deliver a sustainable and relevant solution. Suri’s expertise and dedication to FundingShield have resulted in company revenue and client growth and profitability of more than 400% year over year. 

As one of the companies with the most impactful technology in the housing industry, FundingShield was a HousingWire Tech100 winner in both 2019 and 2020. 

HousingWire’s inaugural 2019 Tech Trendsetters award recognized Suri as one of the industry’s top 50 professionals behind the most innovative technology driving the housing and mortgage industries.
