Transforming the Commercial Lending Process

By lauraschield


In this episode of Reinventing Banking, a special podcast series brought to you by Bank Director and Microsoft Corp., Bank Director’s COO Laura Schield interviews Mike Budinger, the Commercial Lending Transformation Leader and a Principal at Crowe, to learn how Crowe’s Credit Solutions practice is developing products for the commercial lending process that automate, eliminate, and make internal processes more efficient.

During this conversation you will hear how Crowe CX for Commercial Lending can simplify the loan origination process for both borrowers and lenders. Mike combines human-centered design with an outcome-driven innovation process to identify underserved outcomes that are important but not satisfied using existing tools. Mike has been with Crowe for 15 years and has served in commercial and mortgage lending roles with two regional banks prior to joining Crowe.
