2019 HW Vanguard: Jerry Halbrook

Volly CEO

Jerry Halbrook has held several C-suite executive positions in financial services and mortgage banking including roles at Deloitte & Touche, Prudential Home Mortgage, Citibank and Bank of America. He has also served in executive consulting capacities with both KKR and Blackstone and has been involved with successful startup fintech companies.

Halbrook served as the president of Black Knight’s Origination Division from 2011 until 2017. He led the successful growth of the Empower Loan Origination System as well as Black Knight’s big data and enterprise business intelligence solutions. He has consistently driven success in lending, both as a mortgage business leader and a mortgage technology provider. In November 2018, Halbrook was appointed CEO of Volly, a provider of cloud-based marketing automation, CRM and POS solutions for banks and mortgage companies. He joined Volly after serving for over 34 years in various executive-level positions within the mortgage industry and the mortgage technology industry and has applied that expertise to transforming Volly from a portfolio of three separately managed family-owned businesses into a comprehensive industry-leading technology platform strategy.

Halbrook has negotiated significant partnership arrangements with complementary leading-edge technology companies to provide data-driven campaign management and AI capabilities to supplement the core platform strategy of Volly and provide significant value creation and performance for its clients. These partnerships reflect his ability to form complex partnerships and focus on the best interest of Volly clients and the needs of employees and customers.
