Sanjiv Das is a senior financial executive with 30 years of extensive experience in consumer banking and capital markets. As an executive with a global perspective, Das has successfully led numerous companies in both growth and turnaround positions.
During the Obama administration, Das was instrumental in designing and successfully delivering numerous consumer programs in collaboration with the government, which helped families stay in their homes, avoid foreclosure and regain their financial footing. Many of these programs were ultimately incorporated into housing policy guidelines and continue to serve as the foundation for sustained homeownership in the U.S.
As the CEO of Caliber Home Loans, Das has leveraged his deep experience in hyper-competitive markets, consumers and regulation to position Caliber as one of the largest mortgage companies in the country. In Das’ four years at Caliber, he has steadily grown the company, drastically increasing origination numbers. In 2018, Das successfully led Caliber to an all-time best year as the company reached more than $52 billion in originations. Additionally, Das led the charge on Calibers’ partnership with Figure Technologies, resulting in the development of the Caliber Home Equity Line of Credit, positioning the company as one first mortgage lenders to book an all-digital Home Equity Line of Credit.
Furthermore, Das launched Caliber’s Women in Leadership affinity group, an organization that is dedicated to empowering and enriching employees, through an inclusive platform of leaders that supports gender equality in the workplace.
