Jay Arneja has spent her entire career digitizing and redesigning the mortgage closing and post-closing processes. Early on, she worked in correspondent and wholesale lending, where she specialized in Mortgage Electronic Registration System (MERS) administration for several organizations and ran the closing department of GreenPoint Mortgage’s highest-producing branch before the lender was purchased by Capital One. She later joined MERSCORP, where she spent more than a decade leading product teams, then went on to consult for Freddie Mac. Today, at SimpleNexus, Arneja is helping to usher in a new age of digital closings that scale back paperwork, get loans to funding faster, and emphasize borrower single sign-on convenience.
