Denver-based LenderLive Network hired Lorie Helms as chief information officer, where she will lead and manage the firm’s IT infrastructure, network and data security.

She will also provide oversight for corporate and divisional application development and report directly to Rick Seehausen, CEO of LenderLive.

Helms brings more than 17 years of technology management experience and innovation to her new position.

Most recently, she was chief technology officer for Stewart Lender Services, where she was responsible for the oversight of application development, reporting and analytics, project management, deal implementation, infrastructure and the help desk.

“Because technology is the backbone of everything LenderLive does, it is essential that our platform remains robust, secure and state-of-the-art,” said Seehausen. “Lorie’s expertise will enable us to enhance our IT architecture, infrastructure and security—improving processes, productivity and the client experience.”
