Consolidated Analytics, a provider of mortgage services, announced the appointment of Josh Fuchs as SVP of product development and sales for its residential valuations division. In this role, Fuchs will drive the vision, innovation, execution and adoption of new real estate valuation products and will strengthen and modernize existing platforms.
Fuchs joins the California-based Consolidated Analytics from Goldman Sachs, where he was Vice President, Head of Residential Valuation for its real estate management division. Fuchs has more than 15 years of leadership experience developing operational and technology infrastructure, policies, and capabilities that enhance valuation platform and service scalability, efficiency and quality. In earlier roles, Fuchs held leadership positions at JPMorgan Chase, ISGN and FNMA.
"Josh's talent and experience is known in the mortgage industry and he is particularly known for successfully using technology and analytics to innovate solutions within constraints," said Consolidated Analytics CEO Arvin Wijay. "As Consolidated Analytics continues to augment our solutions with real estate analytics, leverage automation and embrace emerging technologies, Josh's 'in-compliance' but 'outside-the-box' approach will be incredibly valuable."
The addition of Fuchs to Consolidated Analytics valuation team is timely, and comes within days of the company's launch of its Consolidated Collateral Analysis (CCA) product, a solution that provides portfolio buyers and sellers with collateral risk insights that may influence transaction and loan decisions.
Fuchs' experience extends beyond property valuation operations and includes experience with loan-quality control process automation, including the development of underwriting guidelines to facilitate higher quality and more efficient trading platforms for originations, second liens, jumbo and other consumer loans.
"Our valuation team is already excited about the new CCA product, and we believe that the addition of Josh with bolster that enthusiasm even more," said Consolidated Analytics President, Brian Gehl. "Our team has great ideas for more efficient and modern valuation solutions that could transform the end-user experience, and Josh has the technical, industry, and product development acumen to help operationalize those ideas and leverage our growing arsenal of tools and technologies."
