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.
EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards go to the most innovative business leaders in the country. Entrepreneurs are evaluated in the areas of innovation, financial performance, risk and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
Stephanie started defi SOLUTIONS in 2012 with a team of industry experts who created the flexible defi loan origination software in half the time and with half the cost originally estimated. Now, five years later, the defi team has grown from six individuals to a team of more than 70 and the defi family of services includes the defi loan origination system with eContracting and digital document handling, a loan management and servicing system, analytics and reporting, and the only auto loan portfolio marketplace with complete evaluation and processing provided by a loan origination system.
defi SOLUTIONS thrives on a culture of collaboration, open communication with the lending community, and client participation in new developments. The entire defi team works with great passion and swings for the fences when designing and building the services that will sustain the lending industry long into the future.
The EY Entrepreneur of the Year regional winner will be announced at a gala on June 24th. Once regional winners are announced, the national winner will be selected in November, and will compete for the global award in 2018. In the opinion of those who work with her daily, and regardless of EY’s decision, Stephanie Alsbrooks and defi SOLUTIONS are the clear winners!
