DENVER, Colo., July 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — BlackFin Group, a management consulting firm serving the banking and mortgage industries, today announced that mortgage industry technology veteran Andrew Weiss has joined the company as a partner and will be work in the consultant’s technology practice. He brings over 35 years of industry experience to the role, across a range of disciplines including mortgage lending, technology development and management consulting.

“Andrew is one of those rare industry executives who has both a long and broad base of experience in our business,” said BlackFin Group CEO Keith Kemp. “His work has always challenged the industry to do more with technology in pursuit of worthy goals. He was a change agent, but with a disciplined approach that will keep BlackFin clients from chasing shiny things when they should be building their business according to a well-developed strategic plan.”

Weiss most recently served as SVP of Platform Strategy at Origence, a LOS developer owned by CU Direct. He was previously a Principal at STRATMOR Group, leading the technology practice with industry legend Len Tichy. Previously, he was CIO at New Penn Bank, senior vice president of strategy for Bank of America, and executive consultant at Newbold Advisors. Weiss began his career in the mortgage industry in 1991 when he joined Fannie Mae. He was senior vice president of Advanced Technology and led the team that developed Fannie’s Desktop Underwriter.

“I’m at a point in my career where I wanted to do something that I was interested in,” Weiss said. “Keith has brought a great team to BlackFin Group and I think together we can make progress in an industry that has traditionally lagged behind others from a technology perspective.”

For Weiss, an executive who has held leadership positions in financial institutions, technology developers, and consulting, the BlackFin opportunity offered him the chance to add value from the experience he’s had working at the intersection of these disciplines.

“I’m not a technologist, strictly speaking, and I’m not a traditional businessman,” Weiss said. “My job has largely been about creating bridges between these groups so that everyone can do their best and achieve their goals. I hope to help BlackFin clients make the best choices according to their own business strategies, managing risk while creating the future. This is how companies distinguish themselves in a highly competitive business like ours.”
