2020 HW Vanguard: Brian Simons

Maxwell, President

Brian Simons, President, Maxwell

Brian Simons, an industry veteran of more than 25 years, is passionate about reimagining how lenders manufacture loans enabled by the power of modern technology. 

Simons joined Maxwell as president back in January 2020 and has already had an exponential impact in both the organization and the industry. Since joining the company, he has focused on the successful launch of Maxwell’s Fulfillment Platform, an outsourced fulfillment solution built for the 200 small to midsize community banks, credit unions and IMBs that use Maxwell’s point-of-sale platform. 

Simons’ leadership of the fulfillment platform culminated in a launch in May 2020. His skillset has been exemplified through the platform’s tremendous success and reception in the market. Simons has already driven a more than 100% increase in employee headcount, with a projected additional 100% growth again by mid-Q3 2020. 

Growth is expected to continue to increase rapidly as small and midsize lenders seek solutions to manage costs, enhance productivity and improve quality. 

Along with growing the team to meet the market demands for processing, underwriting and closing services, Simons is critical in managing the operation and quality of the work done by the team in a way that reflects Maxwell’s technology foundation. 

The Maxwell Fulfillment Platform provides the highest-quality experience for on-shore, outsourced services, and the quality, speed, communication and partnership with the company’s lenders is where his expertise truly shines. 

The speed and quality of the work is noted by a 190% increase in volume processed through the team in their first quarter of operation.
