Altavera Founder Brian Simons joins Maxwell executive team

DENVER, Colo. -- Digital mortgage leader Maxwell has announced Altavera Mortgage Services founder and former CEO Brian Simons has joined the company as president.

Simons comes to Maxwell with 23 years of experience in the mortgage industry, including capital markets, loan origination and default management. His deep understanding of the mortgage market further heightens Maxwell's capacity to build mortgage software that is tailored to meet the technology needs of its hundreds of small and midsize lender customers.

"We're thrilled to have Brian join the Maxwell team," said John Paasonen, co-founder and CEO of Maxwell. "Brian brings deep expertise in the mortgage industry and experience in organizational development acquired over an impressive career. He will be a huge asset as we enter our next phase of growth and extend our mission to empower lenders to make mortgages simpler and more accessible."

Prior to Maxwell, Brian was the CEO of Credit Risk Solutions at Computershare, which acquired Altavera Mortgage Services, a Denver-based company providing third-party origination, quality control and due diligence services to the mortgage community. Prior to Computershare, Simons founded and built Altavera to be a national service provider that catered to each client's unique outsourcing needs while fostering an environment of diversity and opportunity. Brian's career in the mortgage industry began on Wall Street with Credit Suisse and JPMorgan before becoming a founding executive of Urban Lending Solutions.

"I've spent the last ten years leading operational efficiency in mortgage originations, and it's become clear to me that technology is the key to that efficiency," said Brian Simons. "So many technology providers aim to eliminate humans, but there's nothing more personal than helping someone finance their American Dream. The Maxwell team shares my belief that the crucial benefit of mortgage technology lies in its ability to empower employees to deliver an unparalleled borrower experience. I'm excited to join Maxwell and pursue our common goal to elevate the human relationships at the heart of the mortgage transaction."

Recently named a winner of HW's Tech 100 for the fourth straight year, Maxwell's digital mortgage platform leverages proprietary algorithms built on its network of data across hundreds of thousands of loans to enable lenders to accelerate the mortgage lending process from application to underwriting. This allows lending teams to focus on the human relationship at the center of the mortgage journey. Today, hundreds of lenders across the United States use Maxwell's point-of-sale to originate $5 billion in mortgage loans each month at a cycle time 45 percent faster than the national average.

Jocelyn Keegan Selected for New HITAC Task Force Focused on Intersection of Clinical and Administrative Data (ICAD)

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Today, Point-of-Care Partners announced the appointment of Jocelyn Keegan to the Intersection of Clinical and Administrative Data (ICAD) Task Force. ICAD was formed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology-administered Health Information Technology Advisory Committee (HITAC).

The ICAD was created to advance the merging of clinical and administrative data. The task force will focus its initial efforts on advancing industry use of electronic prior authorization (ePA), supporting work underway and leveraging existing information from HITAC and the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics' (NCVHS) prior authorization hearings.

Keegan, a senior health information technology consultant with Point-of-Care Partners (POCP), is a Task Group lead of Pharmacy ePA at the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP), former Task Group lead of Specialty Pharmacy Benefit Identification at NCPDP and leads POCP's team in support of ONC FAST (FHIR at Scale Taskforce). Her work cuts across key regulatory and standards organizations; Health Level Seven International (HL7(R)), X12, NCPDP, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and ONC. She currently serves as Program Manager for HL7 Da Vinci, a Payer/Provider led initiative to leverage HL7 FHIR(R) to exchange critical data required for Value Based Care contracts.

"It is critical to bring together industry investment in both clinical and administrative transactions. ICAD will serve a vital role in addressing gaps that exist due to the diverse standards and systems in play across pharmacy and medical prior authorization. As one of the only people in health IT with hands-on involvement in the rollout of new prior authorization tools across all major standards, Jocelyn is uniquely qualified to help ICAD bring together disparate clinical and administrative data sets," said Tony Schueth, CEO and Managing Partner of Point-of-Care Partners.

Keegan adds, "We are at an inflection point with the industry's move to value-based care and the evolution of available standards to create transparency and synthesize payer/provider data exchange to remove, reduce and streamline complex, often burdensome workflows like those that exist today for prior authorizations. I look forward to helping to drive forward industry and contribute to ICAD's mission in a meaningful way."

ICAD's goal is to produce information and considerations related to the merging of clinical and administrative data, its transport structures, and rules and protections for ePA. The task force's initial recommendations are expected to be issued this fall. Weekly meeting materials and transcripts are available on HealthIT.gov - https://www.healthit.gov/hitac/meetings/2781.

iQ International AG Adds Industry Leaders to Its Advisory Board

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- iQ International AG (ISIN CH0451424300/WKN A2PAA5/Symbol IQL), a multinational Sustainable Technologies company publicly traded on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with its global head office in Zug, Switzerland and North American headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, is adding three industry leaders to its Advisory Board to assist the Company in its expansion plans.

Dennis Brown: Dennis retired from Interstate Battery, where he served as Chief Marketing Officer from 2004 - 2015. His 40 years of industry experience also included various leadership positions with Johnson Controls International (JCI) Power Solutions, which is now Clarios, a subsidiary of Brookfield Business Partners.

Ray Brown: Ray has spent the past 35 years with a specific focus on the energy storage industry. He retired from JCI in 2010, where he served 30 years in various global leadership roles in the Power Solutions division build-up. Since then, he has served on multiple Boards of Directors, including Amara Raja Batteries Ltd. in India.

Allen Martin: Allen is an energy storage industry veteran of 12 years. He left JCI in 2013 after serving 30 years in multiple leadership positions, most recently as Vice President/General Manager, Global Aftermarket, Power Solutions division. Allen is currently an independent distributor and franchisee with Interstate Battery.

"It is an honor to work with these distinguished individuals who truly built this industry and its leading companies," said Kevin T. Loman, iQ International AG CEO. "iQ's executive management team and I are fortunate to have access to the wisdom and experience these gentlemen bring to the company as we grow to meet an ever-increasing industry demand."

As previously announced, iQ International AG is expanding its operations and integrating its technologies into existing manufacturing operations to secure capacity to meet the growing demand it is facing for batteries with its 360 Mixing(TM) technology. These three new members will join the Industry Advisory Board's chairman, Michael Tapp, who also serves as a member of the Company's Board of Directors, and they will be an integral part of iQ's integration process execution and oversight.

A growing market for SLI technology

Demand for higher performance SLI batteries continues to accelerate. To comply with increasing environmental regulations mandating CO2 emission reductions, OEMs are utilizing start-stop, passive boost, and regenerative breaking technologies. In addition, consumer demand for cutting-edge infotainment/comfort features and improved passenger safety requirements have led car manufacturers to install ever increasing numbers of electrical components in automobiles, significantly increasing the electrical load on auto batteries. iQ's 360° Mixing(TM) batteries are replacing major known national brands, and iQ and its distributors have won significant tenders in the UAE and U.S. with government and private fleets. iQ's technologies are seamlessly integrated into the existing production processes and offer one of the most cost-effective ways to meet these increasing battery performance requirements.

"We are so excited about the growth opportunities for this market and to be able to do it in a way that will have a positive impact on the environment," said Roland Koch, member of iQ International's Board of Directors. "Our goal is to increase our market share and help reduce the CO2 load that the transportation industry adds to the environment each year, helping car makers meet the stringent emissions reduction mandates."

It is estimated that by 2025, the market demand for Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) and Enhanced Flood Battery (EFB) with 360° Mixing(TM) battery types will be 150-180 million annually, nearly 30% of the total market. iQ's EFB with 360° Mixing(TM) matches or exceeds the performance of the more expensive and heavier AGM battery widely used and promoted by industry incumbents.

More information on iQ's expansion plans and leadership team is available on its website, https://www.iqint.com/.

About iQ International AG
iQ International AG is a multinational sustainable technologies company listed on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The Company licenses parts of its IP portfolio, and manufactures/distributes highly efficient lead acid batteries that meet the increased need for cycle life in today's global automotive and storage markets. Its award-winning innovative technology is used to create superior, long-lasting, OEM-approved Starting-Lighting-Ignition (SLI) batteries.

Batteries with iQ International AG technologies are designed to generate better performance in today's highly electrified vehicles, particularly vehicles with Start-Stop applications. Studies have shown that if the Company's technology was the standard in the industry approximately 15 million tons of CO2 would be saved in the transportation industry each year, helping car makers meet the stringent emissions reduction mandates.

"I am honored to take over leadership of this outstanding organization," said Taylor. "While I am assuming the role of CEO during an unusual time in our country, I feel the construction industry will play an integral role in restarting the economy."

Current Builders is most often recognized for its multi-family residential projects; however, the firm offers tremendous depth across all building types including warehouse projects, office buildings, mixed-use complexes and K-12 educational facilities.

Presently, the firm is working on construction projects for Broward County Schools, several senior living and multi-family housing developments, new projects on the west coast and the high-profile Uptown Boca mixed-use development, which is the latest addition to Boca Raton's Glades Road corridor.
