Executive Leadership Changes at nCino


Matt Hansen is the new chief product officer of nCino, which offers cloud banking and digital transformation solutions for the global financial services industry.

In addition, Jaime Punishill has been named chief market officer (CMO) of nCino.

Also, Ben Miller has been named CEO of SimpleNexus, which nCino acquired in January.

Hansen is the founder of SimpleNexus, and served as its CEO for more than 10 years. There, he 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 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.

Punishill is taking over for Jonathan Rowe, Ph.D., who is taking on a new strategic role with the company after serving as its 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 has served as chief marketing officer for the past five years.

During his tenure, Punishill 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.

Prior to Lionbridge, Punishill served as head of brand strategy and digital marketing at TIAA, a top financial services company, and previous to 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.

Miller is taking over for Cathleen Schreiner Gates, who will remain with the company in an advisory capacity. He co-founded SimpleNexus and has played a critical role in scaling the business into the leading digital homeownership software company in the U.S., serving more than 300 independent mortgage banks (IMBs), over 100 banks and credit unions and more than 49,000 loan originators nationwide.

Miller is a seasoned leader with more than 15 years of experience driving innovative business strategy, operations and go-to-market activities. In this new role, he 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.

“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,” says Pierre Naudé, chairman and CEO of nCino, in a release. “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.”
