Nationwide appraisal provider MCS Valuations (MCSV), LLC, has strengthened its management team to emphasize the company's focus on quality assurance and compliance, according to an announcement.
Providing executive oversight of MCSV is Mark Hinkle, SVP for Mortgage Contracting Services (MCS), which acquired the company in September 2014. With his servicing experience and focus on quality and vendor management, the firm says he is "uniquely qualified to lead [the] group."
In addition, Katie Parkey, who serves currently as VP for MCSV, will expand her role to include business development, client relations, new client onboarding, and industry relations. Parkey joined the company following its acquisition by MCS, having previously worked at CoreLogic since 2007.
Also included in the announcement is Ryan Sedgwick, who has been promoted to VP of operations from his previous role as director of business operations. An experienced leader, Sedgwick was also previously with CoreLogic, having started there in 2005.
Finally, Kimberly Drake-Loy was named general counsel and chief compliance officer. Working from MCS' North Texas headquarters, she will be responsible for MCSV's quality control and quality assurance process, as well as legal initiatives.
In a statement, MCS CEO Caroline Reaves said the management changes "highlight MCS' growth and commitment to quality in providing valuations, appraisals and BPOs in both the default and origination markets."
"MCS Valuations is proving to be an exceptional addition to MCS' suite of services," Reaves continued. "Likewise, Katie, Ryan and Kim are exceptionally talented individuals whose hard work and leadership skills have become apparent in the short time they have been a part of the MCS family."
