2021 Tech Trendsetter: Shane Westra


Shane Westra has spearheaded growth and technical innovation in the digital home-buying arena. Westra was promoted from vice president of product to chief product officer of SimpleNexus in October 2020 and continues to lead the way as a passionate, forward-thinking leader. His innovative and out-of-the-box perspective is unmistakably present in SimpleNexus’s company culture, which was ranked number 47 on Fast Company’s list of the world’s 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators this summer.

Westra’s talents for engineering and development have also helped the SimpleNexus platform earn a place on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the fourth consecutive year. As a result of the strategies Westra has put in place, SimpleNexus has become a category leader that exceeds expectations. One of Westra’s most notable contributions in the past year was his management and rapid build-out of Nexus Closing, the electronic closing component of the SimpleNexus platform.
