Glenn Munro, VP of Sales for defi SOLUTIONS, is heading up a dedicated, innovative team of professionals with decades of experience in lending and lending technology services.
We are thrilled that Keven Sticher has joined the defi team as our chief information officer! Keven is taking charge of business alignment, vision, strategy and execution of information technology and information security for the company.
What does that mean exactly?
This 4th of July 2017, we have many reasons to celebrate! Our nation’s freedom and the freedom we extend to our lenders to do business as they choose. And the fireworks that went off two weekends ago when a panel of independent judges deemed defi CEO and founder Stephanie Alsbrooks a winner.
Fantastic News! Stephanie Alsbrooks has been named a Southwest region finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year®! This prestigious program draws participants from over 60 countries and has honored entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com, Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines, Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn, and is now recognizing our favorite founder and CEO.
Remember the computer programmer in Jurassic Park? He was a rotund loner whose workstation was littered with soda cans and empty potato chip bags. The Hollywood stereotype of software engineers is The Lone Coder, a social misfit who shuns human interaction. He can make magic happen with a few clicks of his mouse, but he probably does it from the solitude of his parents' basement.
In real life, The Lone Coder makes mistakes -- lots of mistakes. Answerable to no one, The Lone Coder designs a system only he can understand, and no one else has a prayer of maintaining or modifying. The Lone Coder is a threat to the growth, security, and stability of a computer system. Scariest of all, entire software "teams" can be full of Lone Coders, each one marching to his own beat, following her own whims, leaving a cloud of chaos behind in their wake. Their product might work, but it is a house of cards.

Most of us know what we’re looking for in a life partner, but do you know what your business is looking for in a hardware or software technology partner? What are your preferences? What makes one vendor a better choice for you than for someone else?
Not sure? Haven’t thought about it? Think you already know? defi SOLUTIONS CEO Stephanie Alsbrooks suggests ten questions to help you narrow down which technology partner is right for you.
Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams, a book by Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister about sociology in software engineering, uses the phrase "cult of quality" to define a team that has decided "only perfect is good enough for us." DeMarco and Lister write that while most of the world won't argue for higher quality, members of a cult of quality will "always turn out something that's better than what their market is asking for." And this usually doesn't happen because of any dictate from upper management. Most often it's the team members themselves holding themselves to a higher standard.
This year started off with a bang when we officially introduced defi ANALYTICS and defi SERVICING. Although they are hard acts to follow, we think defi EXCHANGE, our auto loan portfolio marketplace, is equally, if not even more, exciting.
Our CEO and founder Stephanie Alsbrooks has culture in her blood. Company culture that is.
She continues a tradition today at defi SOLUTIONS that she started years ago in many past work lives in the auto lending industry, focusing on the important mission of bringing people together through work and play.
