Two SimpleNexus founders will take on increased roles.

nCino, a pioneer in cloud banking and digital transformation solutions for the global financial services industry, announced several new appointments across its executive leadership team to further support the company’s growth, scale, and product innovation.

The following changes have been made to nCino’s executive leadership:

Matt Hansen nCino

Matt Hansen has been named chief product officer of nCino, overseeing the company’s product development & engineering organization globally. In 2011, Hansen founded SimpleNexus, an nCino company, and served as CEO for more than 10 years. 

Under his leadership, nCino said, Hansen executed an ambitious, long-term vision of developing mobile-first technology for the modern mortgage lender to streamline the path to homeownership and address key industry pain points while preserving lender flexibility and efficiency. In his new role, Hansen will leverage his deep expertise in software-as-a-service (SaaS) development and mobile applications, and his passion for building transformative technology to accelerate the company’s development of innovative, best-in-class, cloud-based software across all lines of business, the company said.

Jaime Punishill has been named chief market officer (CMO) of nCino, succeeding Jonathan Rowe, Ph.D., who is taking on a new strategic role with the company after serving as CMO since 2012. Punishill is an innovative marketing executive with nearly three decades of experience in the technology and financial services sectors.

He joins nCino from Lionbridge, a leading translation and localization company, where he served as CMO for the past five years.

During his tenure, he led a global rebrand, centralized Lionbridge’s global marketing function, and oversaw brand stewardship, demand generation, product marketing, external and internal communications, and voice-of-the-customer and advocacy programs, nCino said.

Prior to Lionbridge, Punishill served as head of brand strategy and digital marketing at TIAA, a financial services company, and before that was global head of content and digital distribution at Thomson Reuters, and head of digital innovation for Citibank N.A.

In his new role, Punishill will assume leadership of nCino’s global marketing organization.

Ben Miller has been named CEO of SimpleNexus, an nCino Company, succeeding Cathleen Schreiner Gates, who will remain with the company in an advisory capacity.

Miller is a seasoned leader with more than 15 years of experience driving innovative business strategy, operations, and go-to-market activities. In his new role, Miller will oversee the continued growth and expansion of the SimpleNexus business and drive innovation that continues to transform the home lending industry for the better, the company said.

“We have made consistent progress over the years executing on our strategic growth initiatives and the appointments we are announcing today are designed to enhance our position and drive further scale, revenue growth and market leadership for nCino on a global basis,” said Pierre Naudé, nCino’s chairman & CEO. “We are excited about the addition of these talented leaders who are uniquely positioned to help nCino continue to transform the global financial services industry, build the best and most innovative software, and enable continued growth for our customers, partners, employees, and stockholders.”
