Class Appraisal, one of the largest nationwide providers of real estate asset valuation and appraisal management solutions to the residential mortgage industry, has just brought Gary Ferguson, a technology veteran with more than 25 years of software engineering experience, on board as its CTO.
We’ve been seeing a lot of activity around the Troy, Michigan headquarters of this national AMC. Now, it appears the company is going deeper into technology development.
Ferguson was a good choice for the position. With over 20 years of experience in enterprise application development, often focusing on the mortgage industry, he is proficient in multiple technology stacks, development methodologies, and interaction design.
In this new role, Ferguson will determine Class’s technology journey and strategies going forward.
John Fraas, President of Class Appraisal, said in the press release: “The valuation space is ready for a new era of innovation, and Gary is the perfect executive to lead us on our trailblazing journey. With his experience in systems integration, automation, and business process management, he will allow us to create a frictionless appraisal experience for our clients through technological innovation — all with the goal of creating long-term solutions for increased borrower satisfaction.”
Ferguson has the experience to lead the company’s innovation efforts. A brilliant, forward-thinking CTO can do worlds of good for a business’s future. The only question now is what will Class’s future look like.
