Orange County, California-based LRES has named Mark R. Johnson as Chief Strategy Officer. LRES provides residential and commercial mortgage services including valuations, REO asset management, and HOA and technology solutions. Johnson will be responsible for creating and implementing new strategic priorities for LRES so that the company’s initiatives reflect its growth plans.
“For a confluence of reasons, the valuation industry is not as efficient as it should, or could, be. By continuing to integrate data sciences, advanced workflows and mobile technology, we can change and improve this ecosystem and bring additional lift to clients as well as to the appraiser community and other vendors,” said Johnson.
With 20 years’ executive experiences at various Fortune 500 companies, Johnson was previously a division president at Nationstar Mortgage Holding and division president and COO at Lender Processing Services (now known as Black knight Financial Services).
“Mark’s proven experience of managing strategic execution and business unit performance metrics at distinguishable companies within our industry makes him the perfect candidate to help lead our strategic efforts. I look forward to working with Mark and the LRES executives to further collaborate with clients, address emerging opportunities and create change within the industry that allows for better accuracy and faster, more efficient delivery of information. LRES seeks to have an intimate understanding of client expectations and is focused on making it easy to do business,” said Roger Beane, CEO of LRES.
