Johnson will play a pivotal role increasing the scale and trajectory of the company’s technology platform to accommodate its rapid growth.

As CTO, Johnson will lead all aspects of MAXEX’s product strategy, data, security and technology including future development of MAXEX’s digital mortgage exchange and platform.

Johnson has more than 25 years of experience in technology, data, product and mergers and acquisitions, including stints at Equifax, Grant Thornton and Delta Air Lines. He is a graduate of Georgia Tech and holds an MBA from the Goizueta Business School at Emory University.

Johnson is joining a talented bench of engineers and technology leaders at MAXEX, including Joe Trapani, former Cloud and Data Architect at Revel Systems; Karl Matthews, former eOriginal and Adobe product executive; and Rich Clement, former VP of Technology at Safely, who previously worked with Johnson at eVestment as Principal Architect and is also a Georgia Tech alumni.

“I am thrilled to see that my fellow Georgia Tech alumni have joined MAXEX,” said serial technology entrepreneur and early MAXEX investor Tom Noonan. “Mitchell and Rich are great examples of how world class engineers coming out of Georgia Tech are able to find key leadership roles right here in Atlanta with cutting edge technology companies.”

“MAXEX is an exciting and rapidly-growing fintech company that is uniquely positioned within the largest credit market in the world — the U.S. mortgage loan market,” said Johnson. “MAXEX is solving a series of highly complex and antiquated problems with the way mortgage loans are traded. The company has made amazing progress increasing liquidity in the U.S. housing markets and I am thrilled to join and lead this talented technology team.”
