In early 2020, Joe Langner joined five-time HousingWire Tech 100 company ReverseVision to advance technical initiatives that allow loan originators to easily incorporate senior lending products into their existing origination workflow.
Langner has accelerated technology enhancements and invested in initiatives that deliver increased value to ReverseVision customers, including increasing customer support and software engineering staff by 25%, upgrading data centers to Amazon Web Services, spearheading soon-to-be-announced partnerships with prominent CRMs, POSs, LOSs, financial planning and mortgage services software and introducing a complimentary consultation service to help customers align their technology stacks with their business goals.
This year alone, Langner has led ReverseVision to achieve the following accomplishments: processing more HECM loans originated on RVX than all other systems combined; usage by all 10 of the top-10 HECM lenders; and 62 of the top 75 forward mortgage lenders brokering on the ReverseVision platform. Leading up to joining the company, Langner was already a 30-year industry veteran, having held numerous executive positions at marquee firms during critical organizational junctures. His impact on the industry includes having executed Ellie Mae’s IPO in 2011 as executive vice president and chief sales officer; preparing SaaS LOS PCLender for acquisition by Fiserv as president and chief revenue officer; and securing a 100% increase in revenue for Blue Sage as CEO and chief revenue officer.
His other roles include executive vice president and general manager at Sage, and senior vice president at Dun and Bradstreet, a global provider of business decisioning data and analytics.
