Wells Fargo’s Leendert Bijnagte Honored by MISMO

""MISMO"":http://www.mismo.org, the not-for-profit data standards subsidiary of the ""Mortgage Bankers Association"":http://www.mortgagebankers.org (MBA), presented its Staff Appreciation Award to Leendert Bijnagte, business systems consultant at ""Wells Fargo Home Mortgage"":http://www.wellsfargo.com.

""MISMO is very fortunate to have so many hard working and dedicated volunteers who contribute their time and expertise year after year,"" said Greg Alvord, chief architect of MISMO.

""Leo's innovative ideas and contributions have provided guidance in implementing electronic commerce for the


mortgage industry,"" Alvord continued, ""and his solutions have saved many hours of manual labor in the evolution of the data models as MISMO's Version 3 came to fruition.""

An active participant with MISMO since 2003, Bijnagte has been involved in the development of the SMART Doc specification, is co-chair of the Interface Architecture Workgroup (IAWG), and was recently elected as co-chair of the eMortgage Workgroup.

Prior to joining Wells Fargo in 2005, Bijnagte was an early pioneer of computerized automation of typesetting and the conversion of word processing data files to typeset copy in the publishing industry.

He began his association with the mortgage industry while working for the MLS division of Moore Business Forms, where he automated information capture for online multiple listing services, and developed and patented a system for delivery of images across a private network.

The Staff Appreciation Award recipient is selected by MISMO to recognize individuals for their ongoing dedication to the organization.

MISMO presents two of these awards annually, one to a residential participant at the Fall Trimester Meeting in September and one to a commercial participant at the MBA Commercial/Multifamily Servicing and Technology Convention in May.
