Johnson has more than 25 years of experience in technology, data, product, and mergers and acquisitions including stints at Equifax, Grant Thornton and Delta Air Lines. As CTO, Johnson will lead all aspects of MAXEX’s product strategy, data, security and technology including future development of MAXEX’s digital mortgage exchange and platform. Prior to MAXEX, he was chief technology officer for eVestment, a NASDAQ company originally backed by Insight Venture Partners. eVestment provides institutional investment data, analytics and market intelligence to public and private market investors.

"MAXEX is solving a series of highly complex and antiquated problems with the way mortgage loans are traded," said Johnson.

"Mitchell shares in the same bold vision and passion for problem-solving as the rest of our leadership team and has a proven track records of leading high-performing technology organizations across similarly complex businesses," said Bill Decker, president & chief operating officer of MAXEX.
