Jonathan Nahil Joins FormFree As CTO

Jonathan Nahil has joined mortgage fintech FormFree as Chief Technology Officer.

Nahil brings more than two decades of software and leadership experience to the position. Prior to FormFree, he served as a software architect for customer service automation platform Ada.

“I’m excited to share that I’ve started a new position as Chief Technology Officer at FormFree. I’ll be working with the team to build the next iteration of Passport (and some even more exciting things!) to help achieve FF’s vision of democratizing lending,” Nahil said in a post on LinkedIn.

Passport is a mobile application that automatically updates consumers’ financial info while letting them control their financial identity when browsing.

Nahil’s other experience includes a decade at Accenture as global head of architecture for the Mortgage Cadence suite of enterprise loan origination applications, as well as senior software positions at Twilio and Amazon.

“Although we come from different backgrounds and have unique specialties, each member of the FormFree team shares a revolutionary spirit — a spirit I recognized in Jonathan Nahil immediately,” said FormFree Founder and CEO Brent Chandler.

“I can’t think of a better person to keep our technology on the leading edge of the mortgage industry’s alternative credit revolution.”

Nahil holds a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from the Colorado School of Mines.

His hiring comes at a time of change for FormFree, which recently promoted a new president and divested itself of its asset-verification service AccountChek.

The company plans to focus more on future innovators like blockchain and decentralized Web3 technologies, especially new technologies that help consumers stay private while browsing in the mortgage lending space.

“FormFree changed the lending industry when we launched its first wave of digital transformation, and we’re ready to change it again by ushering in a new era of consumer empowerment and expanded access to credit for all people,” Chandler said of the new direction.
