"They each represent the very best in their fields and bring rich and unique experience and perspective to Stavvy’s rapidly growing team." - Josh Feinblum, co-founder of Stavvy.

Stavvy, the digital transaction platform used in mortgage application processing, added a series of key leadership hires to continue its growth. Among the new hires are Amy Huchthausen, chief impact and culture officer; Kara Banosian, chief marketing officer; Beth Lehman, head of compliance and consumer protection and corporate counsel; Patrick Bausemer, head of digital strategy; Kyle Stephenson, head of solutions and partnerships; and Mark Witte, head of growth.

The leadership team under co-founders Josh Feinblum and Kosta Ligris are determined to make legal and financial transactions easier and more accessible. Josh Feinblum, co-founder of Stavvy, said, “We’re beyond proud to welcome these incredible new team members. They each represent the very best in their fields and bring rich and unique experience and perspective to Stavvy’s rapidly growing team.”

Amy Huchthausen is stepping down from her role as commissioner of the NCAA’s America East Conference. She is also the co-founder of Asian American & Pacific Islander Athletics Alliance (AAPI) and serves as a judge for MassChallenge. 

Kara Banosian previously led global campaign development and international marketing for LogMeIn, driving a strong acquisition strategy and pipeline through strong partnership with sales.

Beth Lehman held multiple legal and compliance positions before joining the Stavvy leadership team. Previously, she was chief compliance officer and counsel at Fiduciary Trust International, and an advisor to KPMG Advisory, Navigant Consulting, and State Street Global Advisors. 

Patrick Bausemer joins the Stavvy team after nearly a decade at Rapid7. Bausemer led the growth marketing team in their journey to accrue nearly half a billion dollars for Rapid7.

Kyle Stephenson and Mark Witte previously served on the leadership team of NotaryCam, an early pioneer in remote online notarization. 

“Amy will guide our culture as a Stavvy family and our impact on our greater community,” Josh Feinblum said. “Kara will lead our efforts to send the message that Stavvy is at the forefront of digital transaction experiences. Patrick will spearhead our engagement with customers and stakeholders across digital channels. Kyle and Mark will oversee Stavvy’s sales and external engagement strategies, and Beth will facilitate our compliance with state and federal regulations with an eye toward ensuring we are doing everything we can to protect individual consumers every step of the way, which is at the very heart of our work serving clients.”

“These key hires are the first of many,” said Kosta Ligris, co-founder of Stavvy. “Hiring best-in-class professionals with entrepreneurial spirit has been a Stavvy priority from day one. We’re grateful to our entire team for their dedication to our mission of simplifying life’s defining moments. The Stavvy family, including these new leaders, all recognize our resolve to promulgate responsible innovation.”
