Mortgage lenders have to balance two competing interests as they originate loans: the automation required for efficiency and the human touch that consumers need at different points in the process. That's no easy task, which is why we’ve invited Kate Adamson, head of mortgage at Plaid, to speak at our conference on the topic of Consumer Engagement in the Era of the Digital Mortgage.

At Plaid, Kate is responsible for onboarding mortgage customers and helping deliver Plaid's products to the lending market. She joined Plaid three years ago, and previously worked for JPMorgan in a variety of roles, from working for the COO on regulatory strategy to selling securitized products within the investment bank. 

Plaid, which provides back-end solutions for fintech companies like Venmo, Stripe, Robinhood and Acorns, is leveraging its experience with identity, asset and income verification to help mortgage lenders provide a better borrower experience.

Kate AdamsonOn an episode of our In the Winner's Circle podcast with HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney, Kate outlined why she is so passionate about her work. "We’re in a new age, and what drives me is the opportunity for merging these two worlds — the finance one that is so inculcated in process and policy, with one so fast-moving and iterative and adaptive like technology. Those two worlds coming together, personally, is really exciting."

In addition to Kate, the panel includes Mike Eshelman, head of consumer finance at Jornaya, and Tom Radle, vice president, CRM Sales, at Ellie Mae
