About the Brimma Tribe
The creation and growth of Brimma is no accident. Supree, Mario and Rob collaborated together for 15 years designing, developing and delivering some of the most innovative mortgage CRM ⬄ LOS automation available from 2001 – 2016. Brimma teams cut their teeth serving sophisticated and demanding top 25 multi-channel lenders, who understood the value of curating well balanced business domain and technology teams to create proactive automated workflow, previously unavailable.
In 2016 The Brimma Tribe was born to continue the legacy of delivering modern technology innovation for mortgage lenders who need an experienced no nonsense partner to bring their digital lending vision to life. Brimma is founded on the principle of building a unique tribal leadership culture designed to empower each employee-partner by giving them unfettered license to voice their insights. Our Tribe culture is inspired by the book Tribal Leadership by Logan, King, and Fischer-Wright.
