2021 Vanguard: Joe Tyrrell


Joe Tyrrell  took over as top executive for ICE Mortgage Technology upon completion of the acquisition and led the integration of three industry leaders merging together as one organization, as a part of ICE, a global data and technology company.  As a result of his focus on integrating seamlessly into one group, the shift occurred with little to no interruption to customers and partners.

As the leader of ICE’s Mortgage Technology business segment, Tyrrell  focuses on maintaining a positive culture for the over 2,500 teammates, specifically from merging Ellie Mae, Simplifile and MERS together, that each were in business separately for decades, and connecting the team not only to each other but also as a group within the Intercontinental Exchange umbrella. Tyrrell’s tireless effort to both connect people to the business segment’s mission, as well as integrate the group into the ICE global company shows up in the successful way the team continues to launch and deliver industry-changing innovation. Not only is Tyrrell an excellent leader with a clear strategic vision, but also he is beloved across the company.  

Tyrrell’s visionary leadership enables the company to produce game-changing and industry-leading technology, which includes automation advancements. By leveraging AI and machine learning, the company is poised to deliver improvements in the borrower experience while reducing the time and cost to help lenders grow their margin. Tyrrell previously served as chief operating officer at Ellie Mae, where he oversaw technology, product strategy, product management and business and corporate development efforts. He was at the forefront of leadership for 90% of Ellie Mae’s workforce directly.
