This Week at Notarize Episode #10: Under the Hood of Notarize as a Business

Yesterday we announced that Brian Mirek joined Notarize as its VP of Sales, so it only makes sense that we bring on the big guns for this week's episode of This Week at Notarize. They said we shouldn't bring someone from finance on the show, but Myles Lane, our VP of Finance, is our latest guest to give you an inside look under the hood of Notarize as a business. 

We're onto Q4 but we have a lot more news to share soon 🤫

Welcome back to the show!

Notarize Welcomes LogMeIn's Brian Mirek as Vice President of Sales

When we first launched Notarize, we had an incredible amount of inbound interest. From the biggest banks and lenders in the country, to any industry that depends on thousands of notarized documents each year, it seemed that we were discovering a new use case each day. While we couldn't meet those inbound requests at the time, we knew that once we could scale while getting the customer experience right, we would be an entirely different company. Fast forward a few years later, and not only do we have the biggest lenders in the country as customers, including Guaranteed Rate, but thousands of businesses across nearly every industry now run on Notarize.

Now, we're focused on scale. To help us build our go-to-market strategy and accelerate our sales engine, I'm excited to share that Brian Mirek is joining Notarize as our Vice President of Sales.

This Week at Notarize Episode #9: Why You Should Care About MISMO's Standards on Remote Online Notarization

Last week was a special episode of "This Week at Notarize" where we talked about our partnership with Guaranteed Rate: one of the largest lenders in the country. If you missed the news, you can read coverage on TechCrunch, The Title Report, Inman, HousingWire or the National Mortgage Professional Magazine.

Yeah, it was a big day.

While it's tough to match last week's announcement, this week we're back with a new episode of the show. Recently, the Mortgage Industry Standard Maintenance Organization (MISMO) published a new set of industry standards around remote online notarization. This is important for a few reasons, but the biggest, is there is now standards and guidance for the entire real estate finance industry around using remote online notarization for executing digital mortgages. Or, in simpler terms: best practices for helping people close on their homes online.

This Week at Notarize Episode #6: Why We Decided to put on a Real Estate Conference

Have you ever been to an event you loved? That really made the price tag worth it? Every company thinks about events, whether they're putting one on themselves or building a schedule of conferences to send their employees to. That's why I was excited to interview Courtney Margossian, who runs events here at Notarize.

In the newest episode of "This Week at Notarize" – our weekly series about everything happening inside Notarize – we talk about our conference, Rewired, and why we decided to put on a one-day event on the future of real estate.

This Week at Notarize Episode #5: Defining Culture in Your Company

We're back with a new episode of "This Week at Notarize" – our weekly series about everything happening inside Notarize! This week we're talking about culture. So much of the success of any company comes down to how connected employees are to each other, and the mission they're rallied around. What many companies get wrong, is they believe that culture is a fixed idea, and what you have some semblance of it, that it never changes.

That's why I was excited to interview Jasmeet Arora and Kevin Fanning, who are both heavily active in helping us define our culture here at Notarize.
