Mortgage Tech Firm OpenClose Announces Two New Hires

Julie Hoefs and Kenneth Kerfoot recently joined mortgage technology firm OpenClose.

Hoefs has experience managing all aspects of mortgage loan processing, mortgage servicing and loan purchase activity. She has overseen loan operations at Two Rivers Bank and was the assistant manager for lending operations at Fremont National Bank & Trust Co.

At OpenClose, Hoefs will work on the support team, where she will focus on new best-of-breed software partner interfaces and enhancements.

Kerfoot was previously the LOS manager at University Bank. Prior to this, he was the implementation coordinator at Mortgage Builder/Altisource, where he also held the positions of lead support trainer and account specialist.

Kerfoot also previously worked for LOS vendor Dynatek and lenders including United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), Washtenaw Mortgage, Sigma Financial Corporation, 1st Rate Mortgage and Interfirst Mortgage.

Kerfoot will now join OpenClose’s integration team, where he will help enhance existing software products, facilitate digital mortgage processes and produce fintech-level innovation.

OpenClose reports that it also recently added three senior software engineers to its development team.

“As we continue to grow and advance our mortgage software solution suite, hiring subject matter experts with extensive experience working for both mortgage technology vendors and lenders is key to ongoing innovation,” says Jason Regalbuto, CEO and chief technology officer at OpenClose, in a release. “We always strive to deliver robust mortgage software solutions and hands-on customer support, and these new resources help us maintain OpenClose’s track record for success.”
