Ellie Mae Bolsters Its Tech Team

Nov 17, 2011

Ellie Mae has announced that it has expanded its data center operations team by engaging three new technology and infrastructure experts, Karen Paratore, Gene Bowen and Marina Levinson. These experts, whose backgrounds include executive level experience with companies such as Charles Schwab, NetApp and Sprint, have been enlisted to manage data center operations and lead the company’s effort to design and build its next generation of application delivery systems. “We are building a world-class infrastructure in order to support our rapidly growing base of SaaS customers,” said Jonathan Corr, Ellie Mae's chief operating officer. “Our infrastructure is a critical part of our operations. We have more than 20,000 mortgage professionals using SaaS versions of Encompass software. That is 190 percent more users than we had in the beginning of 2010, and represents approximately 170,000 loans in process at any one time. As a leading provider of technology and software for our industry, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve and the team that we have assembled reflects that commitment.” Paratore, who will manage day-to-day operations of the data center, is an information technology executive with over 15 years of experience managing data center operations at Charles Schwab and other high transaction volume organizations. Bowen, who will be responsible for designing and building the next generation data center and infrastructure technology for Ellie Mae, has more than 20 years of experience in information technology and specializes in advanced networking design and technologies. His career includes work as a technology executive at Levi Straus and Sprint, and as a network design consultant, where he led design teams to help businesses develop enterprise-class, industry standard application delivery systems. Levinson, the founder and CEO of executive advisory firm CIO Advisory Group and the former CIO of NetApp and Palm, will work with Limin Hu, Ellie Mae’s chief technology officer, to oversee the company’s data center transformation efforts and help recruit a world-class CIO.
