FinTech Startup, LenderClose, Adds Three New Employees

Des Moines FinTech startup LenderClose has again expanded its staff, adding three new employees this month. To meet demand from its growing client base of community lenders nationwide, LenderClose has increased its workforce by more than 15 employees in the first half of 2019.

Joining the LenderClose team in July are sales representatives Troy Allen and Kathy Bell and software developer Caleb Salt.

“We’re building out our team to support steady growth, which continues to affirm our belief that we’re offering credit unions and community banks the best digital lending platform,” said LenderClose COO Ben Rempe. “We’re always evaluating the size and skills of our staff to maintain the best possible customer service experience and to find new ways to enhance platform features and functionality.”

Allen, of Altoona, Iowa, is the former regional manager of Community 1st Credit Union in Indianola. There, he managed four branches and 25 employees. During his more than 17 years in banking, Allen achieved consistent loan and deposit growth and was recognized as a top sales professional. He’ll use this deep experience working in community lending institutions in his role as sales executive for LenderClose.

Bell, of Grimes, Iowa, brings extensive experience in sales and business development to the LenderClose team, having most recently worked as a client executive with ACS and a senior sales executive with Dice Holdings, both in Urbandale. She has expertise in developing sales strategies in highly competitive markets and as a LenderClose sales executive, which will help to further its footprint in key markets.

Salt, of Chattanooga, Tenn., is a developer with experience designing, coding and deploying software systems for more than 400 companies. In his most recent role as a software programmer analyst for IMT Computer Services in Des Moines, he worked in a fully test-driven development (TDD) agile programming environment. For LenderClose, he will be focused on developing further solutions, including API integrations into loan origination software and the solutions of national data providers.
