As vice president of Technology Services, Cheri Lines and her team build and maintain the technology initiatives at Nexsys Technologies — a 2021 HousingWire Tech 100 Winner. Lines and her team of more than 50 technology members are in charge of innovating industry-changing products and finding the best ways to bring them to market. She leads the technology initiatives at Nexsys, focusing on the company’s two primary solutions: Clear Sign and Clear HOI. Clear Sign is Nexsys’ eClosing platform, and with the pandemic taking hold in spring of 2020, remote online notarization (RON) became a main focus for the company and grew substantially. Lines’ team worked tirelessly to assure the technology infrastructure could support that growth during a record year for the housing market. Her team also built the technology that powers Clear HOI, the first-of-its-kind homeowners insurance verification portal that digitizes and automates the communication between mortgage lenders and homeowner’s insurance (HOI) companies. 2020 was a huge year for Nexsys, and Lines’s technology team was a key driver of that growth. In addition to Lines’ direct leadership, she provides mentorship for leaders who are early in their career through the organization’s “Red Door Project.” Illustrating her willingness to “pay it forward,” in 2020, Lines mentored another female technology leader, providing her advice and guidance for her career journey.
