Fintech Gateless Names Mike Brown CRO

Mortgage technology company Gateless appointed Mike Brown as its Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).

In his new position, Brown will spearhead the company’s sales and revenue generation, as well as expand its client base.

“I am excited to join Gateless at this pivotal time in the mortgage industry. The company’s commitment to leveraging intelligent automation to address the longstanding challenges of the lending process is truly groundbreaking,” he said.

“I look forward to working with the Gateless team to empower lenders with the tools to streamline their operations, reduce costs, and deliver a superior experience for borrowers.”

Brown brings extensive fintech and mortgage technology experience to the role. He spent five years with Black Knight prior to its acquisition by ICE in a variety of leadership positions before moving to Dark Matter Technologies as its Chief of Client Engagement. He most recently served as Head of Sales for ACA Group.

The move comes as Gateless is gaining ground in the industry. Mortgage lenders are increasingly interested in automation platforms that improve the client experience and enhance efficiency.
