We’re excited to announce today that we’ve hired three strategic leaders across our data science, title solutions, and sales functions to further our mission of building the one-click checkout for real estate transactions. These new team members join hundreds of others that have joined Spruce this year–and we’re on track to double our headcount again in 2021.
In addition to incredible new hires across the organization, today we’re welcoming:
Brittany Murphy, Head of Data Science: Brittany will oversee our dynamic risk optimization models and underwriting algorithms, further driving our automated offerings. Before joining us at Spruce, Brittany led the research team for HouseCanary, a real estate data and analytics company, and was a lead data scientist at Allstate Insurance.
Debra Hochman, Head of Title Solutions: Debra will lead a cross-functional business team to deliver even more seamless title solutions nationwide. Previously, Debra spent 20 years at First American Title before holding positions at AmTrust Title and TitleWave Real Estate Solutions.

She also held positions at Fidelity National Title and Stonegate Mortgage.
