“Kurt’s directive is simple: use his experience and connections to enhance the IR platform as a workflow management tool that pushes the right set of data to the lender at the right time and the appropriate cost point,” said Informative Research Chief Experience Officer Matthew Orlando. “The insights driven by the workflow management functionality within our platform will help lenders reduce and prevent borrower friction, increase conversion rates, lower/eliminate cost on loans that don’t convert and, ultimately, make better decisions for their business.”

He spent over a decade in various executive and managerial positions, where he led a highly successful team that included analytics, risk management, training, communications and vendor management while managing two of the top five lending institutions and the firm’s GSE relationships.
