Brimma Tech Leadership
About the Brimma Tribe
The creation and growth of Brimma is no accident. Members of the Brimma Tribe have been collaborating together for 20+ years designing, developing and delivering some of the most innovative mortgage CRM ⬄ LOS automation available since 2001. 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 methodology and vision is based on the book Tribal Leadership by Logan, King, and Fischer-Wright.

Tribal Leadership
We truly believe in the philosophy of Tribal Leadership elaborated in the New York bestseller by the same name! The book chronicles how the highest-performing organizations represent tribes with shared values focused as teams of “We” dedicated to continually focusing on the needs of others.
Brimma believes ‘Life is Good’ and our culture and bliss is encapsulated in the following simple belief…
“… Those who will be truly happy will be those who sought and found out how to serve others.”
