The mortgage insurance startup sees the new hires as a key to its growth strategy
Tech startup Covered Insurance Solutions, a service that connects mortgage lenders to insurance providers, recently appointed Robert Brennan as chief revenue officer and Mickey Freeman as chief operating officer.
Brennan was previously executive vice president of corporate strategy and business development at mortgage services Specialized Loan Servicing, a subsidiary of tech company Computershare. Freeman joined Covered from Education Funding Partners, where he was president and co-founder.
Brennan will focus on strategic partnerships, cross-channel distribution, market development, and commercial marketing at Covered, while Freeman will focus on operations, strategy, corporate development, and marketing across various channels.
The hiring of Brennan and Freeman bolsters the Covered’s long-term growth strategy, Covered co-Founder and CEO Ross Diedrich said.
“As our business model grew from startup to scale-up, we sought executive sales and operations talent that has ‘been there, done that’,” said Diedrich. “Rob’s strategic partnership experience and ability to create win-win partnerships in the mortgage servicing and lending channels was immediately apparent. Mickey’s extensive multi-sector, enterprise-driven experience in rapid-growth environments is being applied to grow revenues and results without sacrificing quality and customer enthusiasm. We’re excited to see what 2019 will bring with our expanded leadership team.”
