eLynx’s Andy Crisenbery named MBA Tech All-Star
eLynx head of business operations recognized by Mortgage Banking magazine for “tireless work on data standards”
April 5, 2016 – Cincinnati, OH – eLynx, the pioneer and leader in on-demand web-based compliance services for secure, data-validated mortgages, is proud to announce that Andy Crisenbery, senior vice president of business operations, has been named an MBA Tech All-Star by Mortgage Banking.
Crisenbery was recognized by the magazine for his “tireless work on data standards” that benefit the entire industry. Crisenbery, the chair of the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization’s membership and revenue committee, has “helped to make MISMO increasingly the de facto standard for mortgage transactions,” the magazine said.
“He’s one of those MISMO warriors who toil in the trenches so everyone else’s technology syncs up and industry productivity multiplies,” said Janet Hewitt, editor-in-chief of Mortgage Banking. “It’s noble work, when you think about it. And we are recognizing him for it.”
The magazine noted that “regulators are rallying around the standards as well. Witness the fact that new Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data is being required by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to conform to MISMO standards.”
Led by Crisenbery, eLynx is one of the few companies in the market to hold multiple MISMO certifications, having earned both MISMO’s Premiere certification for the Expedite platform and the MISMO certification in the TRID domain.
“I am very proud to receive this distinction,” Crisenbery said. “I am particularly gratified to be recognized by my peers for work that has helped benefit our entire industry, not just eLynx.”
Crisenbery was credited as the “principal visionary” behind elynx’s Settlement Agent Management (SAM) solution, which enables collaboration among key participants in mortgage closing transactions, including lenders, underwriters and title companies. He also has been working closely with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to test the government-sponsored enterprises’ Uniform Closing Dataset (UCD) protocols, which will take effect in 2017.
Crisenbery has more than 27 years of management and technology-related experience in all phases of software engineering, enablement and adoption of regulatory and compliance solutions with a focus on the financial services market. He joined eLynx in 2006.
“Andy is a doer. He does not seek the spotlight, but he will work tirelessly behind the scenes to help define the future and make such visions a reality,” eLynx President and CEO Sharon Matthews said. “He is highly regarded by many in the industry for his operational experience, compliance expertise and standards knowledge.”
