Dan Sogorka, President and CEO, Sagent Lending Technologies

Dan Sogorka has led digital transformation in housing for two decades. Before joining Sagent in March 2020, he served as CEO of digital mortgage point of sale provider Cloudvirga, president of EXOS Technologies, executive vice president of Servicelink, a $1 billion revenue subsidiary of Fidelity National Financial, and division president at Black Knight. 

Since joining Sagent, Sogorka has played an integral role in helping reinvent and modernize how banks and lenders power the homeownership and consumer lending experience for more than 12 million borrowers. Within the first few months of his leadership role at Sagent, Sogorka has racked up numerous accomplishments. He scaled product development to deploy new features, functionality, and configurability that keeps up with the real-time changes the pandemic has brought to markets, borrower situations and regulations. 

Sogorka identified key opportunities for acquiring core technologies to modernize the loan servicing workflow, including customer service, payments, escrow, investor, collections, loss mitigation, bankruptcy, foreclosure, REO and claims. He leveraged existing and emerging partnerships across the servicing and mortgage lending landscape to modernize systems for loan origination, point of sale, products and pricing, eSign, digital closing and marketing across Sagent’s full loan servicing suite. 

He also added six prolific housing leaders to the executive leadership team. And, finally, Sogorka built out world-class security, compliance, and regulatory/agency affairs teams that enable Sagent’s mortgage servicing customers to react and adapt in realtime to seismic shifts in mortgage servicing policy, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

What has been your secret to success?
Bringing together engineering, creativity and relationships. My background helps make complex technical matters simple for decision makers, which builds relationships. In my creative pursuits, I write and produce music which is just like building housing technology: bringing different specialists together to collaborate.
