2020 Tech Trendsetter: Pat Kinsel

Pat Kinsel, Founder and CEO, Notarize

Pat Kinsel knew back in 2015 what the entire world now knows in 2020 – that there needed to be a simple, easy digital way to notarize documents online from the comfort and safety of someone’s home in just a few short, simple steps. Kinsel has led Notarize through an incredible growth trajectory of 600% growth in 2020 alone, and he’s been on the forefront of increasing security surrounding real estate closings through his work across a multitude of industries. Under Kinsel’s leadership, Notarize has completed the country’s first legal online notarization, online real estate closing, online mortgage, online will and online auto sale. Kinsel led Notarize to become the first platform approved by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and countless title underwriters and national banks. Kinsel and Notarize have chaired the standards-setting groups for the Mortgage Bankers Association, American Land Title Association and others. He’s been on forefront of creating meaningful policy change for remote online notarization legislation, even driving state-to-state in the early years to meet with individual lawmakers and lobby for the bill. Over time, Kinsel has driven the passage of RON laws by 29 states, with more in the works, including a ground-breaking bill at the federal level. With the federal bill, driven largely by Kinsel’s team, Notarize hopes to enable a 50-state solution for RON transactions that would create online notary legislation across the U.S.
