First Valuation announced that it has promoted Jordan Wilde to the position of vice president of sales and marketing. Wilde joined First Valuation in February 2014 as national account executive, based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

In his new role, Wilde will lead the company’s sales and marketing efforts, as well as client relations and acquisitions, business development, and have oversight of the sales team.

Wilde has been tasked with improving company sales, strengthening the quality of First Valuation’s product and service offerings, and helping clients better adhere to compliance standards in valuations.

Wilde brought more than 13 years of sales and management experience in the mortgage banking and real estate industries to First Valuation. His focus has mostly been in originations, private lending, and loss mitigation during that time.

“Wilde’s contributions to the company in that time have demonstrated his outstanding leadership capabilities and in-depth industry knowledge,” First Valuation said.

“The company looks forward to Mr. Wilde’s forthcoming contributions at the helm of its sales & marketing organization as it begins 2015 in a position to expand its role in the market.”
