Tech Start-up Preclose hires Saas Exec as VP of Sales
Long-time mortgage, SaaS executive joins Preclose as VP of Sales
Charleston, SC - April 3, 2017 - Preclose announced the addition of long-time mortgage, SaaS exec, Scott Stein, to their leadership team as VP of Sales to help drive their mission of bringing real estate transactions 100% online. Preclose, the closing management software provider for real estate brokerages and teams, works with agents to bring transparency to a fragmented closing process and reduce transaction time for real estate agents, home buyers, and service professionals, such as mortgage lenders, title and escrow companies, and home insurance providers. Scott’s addition to the team and his experience driving growth for the mortgage technology industry, is a huge step towards streamlining real estate closings across industries.
"This is an exciting time to be joining Preclose,” Stein said of his new role. “As the digital home buying process becomes more and more common, borrowers of all ages expect to be able to access any information related to their closing, at anytime, from their smartphone. And, this market is poised for tremendous growth as Millennials continue to transform the home buying process. As the new wave of first-time home buyers increases, real estate agents who offer a completely digital experience will dominate the market. There’s no doubt Preclose will be the technology partner that provides that capability, offering a platform that allows all parties involved in the home buying process to remain in lock step from contract to closing."
Scott has three decades of corporate strategy, marketing, and business development experience in the SaaS world, most recently as the VP of Sales for Roostify, a software platform that provides transparency to the mortgage loan process. In this role, he was responsible for a significant increase in both customer base and revenue. Prior to Roostify, Scott was the EVP of Sales for Mercury Network, and from 2009-2013, served as CEO for Xetus, a leading software provider that streamlines the lending process for loan officers. During this time he’s developed extensive relationships with leading banks, credit unions and other strategic technology partners in efforts to enhance a consumer’s experience throughout the home buying process.
“Scott’s addition to our team is paramount in expanding Preclose’s customer base nationwide and identifying key industry collaboration partners,” CEO Rebecca Guthrie explained. “We’re committed to creating a more collaborative, transparent, closing experience. Scott will build upon our mission to help real estate professionals improve the home purchase experience by reducing the risk of communication breakdowns during closings. He’ll also drive key integrations for Preclose across the industry to provide real estate agents a better return on investments on existing platforms. Scott’s unique experience allows him to articulate this value proposition and partner with our clients to drive change in the real estate closing process.”
