Brian Benson has reportedly stepped down from his role as CEO of ClosingCorp, a provider of residential real estate closing cost data and technology for the mortgage and real estate services industries.
As per a company statement, ClosingCorp has seen rapid growth in recent years and, as such, has decided to seek a CEO with more experience in technology.
“Given the company’s significant growth – growing by approximately 90% – the board decided that ClosingCorp needs a more seasoned CEO with experience in a high growth technology environment,” the company says in its statement. “As CEO, Brian and his team helped position the company to prosper going forward. We thank Brian for his significant contributions to ClosingCorp.”
James Bolger, chief financial officer, and Kamel Boulos, chief technology officer, will share the duties of CEO on an interim basis and will report directly to the board of directors.
The board has formed a search committee to find a permanent and experienced CEO with operations and software-as-a-service expertise for the position, the company reports. The board strongly believes in the seasoned executive staff in place and is looking for a CEO that will complement the team.
“The board has been very pleased with the company’s performance and expects that the company will continue this upward trajectory both with the current interim changes and even more so under the new seasoned CEO leadership,” says Staffan Encrantz, chairman of the board, in the statement.
