SimpleNexus founder Matt Hansen is passing the role as CEO of the company on to current president Cathleen Schreiner Gates.

SimpleNexus, a developer of a homeownership platform for loan officers, borrowers, real estate agents and settlement agents, announced that founder Matt Hansen will pass the CEO baton to president Cathleen Schreiner Gates.

Hansen will remain heavily involved with the firm, where he will double down on customer focus leading a task force of software developers and sales staff that specializes in tackling high-priority projects, according to a press release.

“SimpleNexus started as a passion project — an app to help my brother-in-law expand his mortgage business — and it has since grown beyond anything I originally imagined,” said Hansen. “Over the past seven years, I've had the great pleasure of building a better homebuying experience for consumers and lenders with the help of hundreds of dedicated, passionate professionals.”

“Now, by placing the leadership of SimpleNexus into Cathleen's highly capable hands, I have the opportunity to return to the work that brings me the most joy: focusing on the voice of the customer and rolling up my sleeves to lead projects that translate our users' needs into reality.”

As CEO, Schreiner Gates will guide SimpleNexus to set the bar for what a homeownership platform should be as she leads operations and strategic decision-making, according to the press release. Schreiner Gates began her engagement with the organization as a board member in April 2020 and was named president in September 2020. She is a decorated mortgage technology leader. Previously, she served as executive vice president of sales and marketing at digital mortgage technology provider Ellie Mae.
