Tim Elkins, 2013 Honoree

Executive vice president, CIO
PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital Company
Skills you'll hire for this year:
We will expand our business process team to bridge the gap between the various departments and the technology department. We will also grow our team to include mobile and Salesforce.com developers.
A recent great deal from a vendor:
We negotiated a deal with our loan origination and closing documents system providers to pay only for loans that fund. This reduced upfront costs, and there were no licensing costs or ongoing maintenance fees. In addition, funding more loans drives the per-unit cost down.
Coolest current project:
The creation and implementation of mobile applications for our partners and consumers.
