Former Fannie Mae Executive Robert J. Levin Joins Ellie Mae's Board of Directors

PLEASANTON, CA —September 22, 2009—Ellie Mae®, the award-winning software and service provider offering comprehensive business solutions for mortgage bankers, brokers, and other mortgage originators, announced today that former Fannie Mae executive Robert Levin has joined its board of directors.

Mr. Levin had been with Fannie Mae from 1981 to early 2009.  As executive vice president and chief business officer for Fannie Mae, he had been responsible for overseeing and integrating the organization’s single-family mortgage business, mortgage portfolio business, mortgage-backed securities business and housing and community development efforts.  During his 28 year tenure with Fannie Mae, he also served as the organization’s interim chief financial officer, executive vice president of marketing, senior vice president of marketing and mortgage-backed securities, and senior vice president for corporate finance.  Levin is a member of the board of trustees of Morehouse College, and a past board member of the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

“Ellie Mae has demonstrated a leadership role in applying technology to bring quality, integrity and efficiency to the mortgage origination process, and has been central to the industry’s efforts to eliminate paper and wasteful redundancy from loan processing,” says Levin.  “The company is a major player in the industry, and has continued to innovate, even in a challenged market.  This is an organization that will continue to play a key role in shaping the future of the industry as the market recovers and in the years beyond.  I’m very proud to be on the board and to be part of these visionary leadership efforts.”

“Ellie Mae’s success is the result of the contributions of all those involved with our organization — customers, partners, employees and board members,” says Sig Anderman, Ellie Mae’s founder and CEO. “What we accomplish has always been based on collaboration. We’re fortunate to have attracted some of the best minds in the mortgage industry, and as we welcome Robert Levin to the board of directors, we look forward to the contributions that his industry knowledge, experience and foresight will bring.”
