Xerox Mortgage Services (XRX), which provides an electronic mortgage document suite for the mortgage industry, named Nancy Alley general manager this week. Alley is a 20-year industry veteran who spent the past two years working as vice president of product management. She succeeds Greg Smith, the founder of Advectis, which was acquired by Xerox in 2007, turning the electronic document provider into Xerox Mortgage Services. The Alpharetta, GA.-based company allows borrowers, closing agents and other mortgage industry players an opportunity to handle business through the firm's BlitzDocs XE and BlitzDocs Extended Edition document management systems. Prior to her time at Xerox Mortgage Services, Alley founded two companies that assisted financial companies with transitions to paperless document formats. In 2010, Xerox Corp. said its latest venture in mortgages would be an ongoing initiative to make the company's name synonymous with paperless electronic mortgage origination. Write to Kerri Panchuk.
