2020 HW Insider: Jeff Zakrzewski

Xome Senior Vice President of Data Engineering and Analytics

Jeff Zakrzewski

Upon joining Xome just over a year ago, Jeff Zakrzewski led the charge to modernize Xome’s data management practices and position the company as an innovation leader.

To better manage Xome’s high volume of data, Zakrzewski has been transforming what was a data deluge into an advanced data lake. As a result, Xome has rolled out new services to perform data analysis on large datasets and make intelligent, fact-based service recommendations for clients in mere seconds or minutes versus what would have previously taken upwards of eight to 10 hours. Most recently, in his role as senior vice president of data engineering and analytics at Xome, Zakrzewski’s data management practices have eliminated from about 40% to 70% of expense out of key parts of the title services value chain and sped up turn times by anywhere from 50% to 70%, while improving overall quality of services for its clients. He also led key data and application consolidation efforts that will result in roughly $2 million in annualized savings in 2021.
