In July 2016, Fenn Meents joined the iEmergent executive team as its chief growth officer.

Additionally, Meents has single-handedly designed a new strategic solution that uses iEmergent’s analytics to help lenders improve their digital marketing and correspondent lending channels.

Prior to joining iEmergent, Meents achieved success as a strategic projects leader at Primary Capital Mortgage. During that time, he utilized iEmergent’s predictive analytics and strategic tools to grow Primary Capital Mortgage’s annualized production from $600 million to $1.95 billion in 29 months.

He has been featured in and contributed to many of the top industry publications and has been asked to speak at multiple events on how technology and analytics can and will shape the future of housing finance.
