Andrew Weiss, a widely known and highly respected IT mortgage executive, has joined STRATMOR Group, a consulting firm that provides professional expertise and proprietary insights to the mortgage industry, as a principal in the firm’s IT and operations advisory practice.
Weiss has led teams at both start-ups and Fortune 500 companies, focusing his efforts on the optimal use of technology, big data, analytics and automated decision processes, STRATMOR Group stated in a release.
In addition, Weiss has led the development of an automated underwriting platform for the non-conforming mortgage market, a specialized servicing platform for distressed mortgage assets and an online marketplace for private student loans.
