NEXT Mortgage Events and Housing Finance Strategies

NEXT Mortgage Events and Housing Finance Strategies today announced that FormFree, a leading provider of automated verification services for the lending industry, has become the first anchor sponsor of NEXT.

Anchor sponsorships are year-long partnerships that include support of all three NEXT events. NEXT's winter and summer events focus on executive business topics related to technology, operations and production. Its NEXTDC series is produced in partnership with Housing Finance Strategies and focuses on housing policy and tech intel for women executives.

"Smart companies like FormFree value the ROI that results from visibility and presence among the current and future drivers of the mortgage industry," said Jeri Yoshida, co-founder of NEXT. "Between 89 and 90 percent of our lender attendees hold a title of VP or higher. FormFree has made a strategic step forward in solidifying its relationship with its customers of today as well as tomorrow. We are thrilled to welcome FormFree as our first anchor sponsor."

"FormFree spearheaded an anchor partnership with NEXT because we are aligned in our belief that we must bring mortgage women executives to the table with key decision makers to address the industry's most pressing challenges," said Brent Chandler, president and CEO of FormFree. "Our participation in past NEXT events has revealed opportunities for us to improve the way lenders do business. We are excited to exchange ideas, form new partnerships and contribute to the advancement of our industry at NEXT events in 2020."

"We are so pleased to have FormFree supporting NEXT as our first anchor sponsor. Leading, promoting and encouraging women executives through the NEXT model offers unsurpassed value for a full calendar year," said Faith Schwartz, founder of Housing Finance Strategies and co-founder of the NEXTDC event. "I invite others in leadership roles to consider the anchor sponsorship and all that it entails - I'll certainly be speaking about it at #NEXTWINTER20 in Dallas."
