In effort to spur web-based software growth, mortgage software provider PCLender.com is expanding its sales and marketing team. "We are expanding the depth and capabilities of our sales channel to better serve the lending industry in this ever-changing marketplace," says Lionel Urban, president and co-founder of PCLender.com. In its efforts to do so, the company appointed Paul Eckert Sales and Marketing Manager of the company's newest sales division, Express Channel, which was developed for regulated lending institutions funding between ten to fifty units per month. Eckert will lead marketing strategies, direct growth initiatives and head sales efforts for the Express division. His team will have a national focus and aim to further complement the existing sales and marketing staff, who currently serve larger financial institutions. Most recently Vice President and Director of National Sales for LION, Inc. of Seattle, Wash., Eckert has a 20-year history with mortgage technology products and e-business solutions.
