I am honored to be identified as an inaugural Tech Trendsetter by HousingWire. The receipt of this recognition is very humbling – I am so grateful for all the opportunities afforded me and a very special thanks to our amazing team of innovators and partners.
NotaryCam®, the leader in online notarization and original provider of mortgage eClosing solutions, today announced that its Founder and CEO Rick Triola has been named a 2019 Tech Trendsetter by HousingWire magazine as part of its inaugural HW Tech Trendsetter Awards™ program. In the magazine’s profile on Triola, the HousingWire editorial staff noted that as the founder of NotaryCam, Triola brought remote online notarization (RON) and remote online closing (ROC) technology to the industry and has been a driving force in RON/ROC adoption.
“It’s our immense pleasure to introduce HousingWire’s inaugural list of Tech Trendsetters, the master minds behind the technology driving the housing and mortgage industries. This award highlights the most impactful and innovative technology leaders serving the housing economy. Each year, HousingWire recognizes the top 100 technology companies in the housing finance space. But now, we are doing more. We are recognizing the experts behind the technology. The people who drive the innovation. The executives making an impact.. HousingWire has always recognized innovation and technological advancements in the housing industry, but none of those advancements happen without people leading the way,” HousingWire Managing Editor Ben Lane said. “Technology doesn’t simply create itself. People are the driving force behind those innovations. And it’s in that spirit that we proudly honor the visionaries helping to push the housing industry into the future.”
NotaryCam introduced RON to the Industry in early 2013 and pushed hard to set the standards, which have now been widely adopted. First, Triola presented NotaryCam’s platform to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in January 2013 to garner GSE buy-in. From there, Triola addressed the National Association of Secretaries of State in June 2013 to introduce RON and neutralize opposition from the 49 states that had yet to legalize RON at that time. From there, Triola continued reaching out to all stakeholders, including individual title offices throughout the nation, and as a result, NotaryCam completed the first RON mortgage closing in early 2014 with a top 5 mortgage lender.
