Bill Dallas is a visionary in the fintech industries, responsible for founding and managing more than a dozen mortgage startups and financial tech companies over the past 40 years. His first venture, First Franklin, grew to be one of the nation’s largest lenders and eventually sold for $330 million. Other hugely successful ventures include risk management solution Interthinx and lending process automation software company Mindbox, which Bill sold for $27 million and $20 million, respectively. Most recently, Bill sold a minority stake of Own It to Merrill Lynch for $500 million.
Although technology has disrupted and improved many industries, the antiquated mortgage lending process remains manual, slow and costly. Along with his co-founders, Bill created the intelligent Mortgage Platform (iMP), the enabling technology behind cloudvirga’s mortgage point-of-sale platforms which leverages data and an intelligent workflow to drastically cut the time and cost associated with closing a loan. The proven system, which has already processed more than $7 billion in loans, is successfully transforming home lending by digitizing, automating and simplifying the process for consumers, lenders and Realtors®.
Currently CEO of Skyline Home Loans, a top-50 mortgage lender, Bill serves as chairman of cloudvirga’s board of directors. He holds a law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law as well as an undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University, where he graduated magna cum laude.

Since co-founding cloudvirga in 2016, Kyle has led the company through multiple rounds of investment funding, set the vision for its flagship POS systems, forged partnerships with leading mortgage service providers, and signed eight of the top 40 non-bank mortgage lenders.
