Briana Ings is a leader and product visionary who has worked closely with lenders, notaries, signing services, settlement and consumers to deeply understand their needs and develop products that help to transform their businesses. At Snapdocs, Ings leads the company’s efforts to build a platform that helps all the parties involved in mortgage closing work together more efficiently. Ings is a member of the executive leadership team, which is responsible for building cross-functional collaboration and culture inside the company as well as setting overall corporate strategy and direction. Re-thinking Snapdocs’ product to work in the pandemic was a main focus for Ings this year. Her team quickly built a tool in the product that let lenders lead buyers through the closing process by video, with each party safely in their own homes. Ings is also a strong advocate for women in tech, demonstrating her passion for this community by being an active leader inside and outside of work. At Snapdocs, she started a women’s group for employees which aims to engage, empower and develop women and their allies at Snapdocs. Under Ings’ leadership, the group has looked at issues like pay parity inside the company, provided mental health resources to members, provided training and coaching, and brought in external speakers to provide leadership and guidance.
