International Document Services promotes Mark Mackey to CEO

Will serve as company’s first chief executive

International Document Services, a mortgage document preparation vendor, announced the promotion of Executive Vice President Mark Mackey to chief executive officer.

Mackey becomes the first CEO in the company’s history. Prior to Mackey’s promotion, IDS President Curt Doman was the highest-ranking executive with the company.

According to a release from the company, Doman said he has no plans to leave the company, which he also owns, and that the Mackey’s promotion was “simply a reflection of the role Mackey was already serving within IDS.”

Mackey began his career with IDS in 1999 as a member of the sales team.

“Mark was already filling the CEO role without the title, and he has been doing a great job running the company day-to-day. I’m just finally making it official,” Doman said.

“People who are familiar with IDS know Mark has been running the company in this capacity so we don’t anticipate anything will change for our customers with the promotion,” Doman added. “Mark has a great vision for where to lead the company. He’s an extremely hard worker, very loyal, and I think he’s a great leader that is taking IDS in the right direction.”

Mackey said that he plans to continue the company’s growth in his new position.

“IDS is prepared for TRID and other changes coming to the industry, and that will give us great added value for our customers,” Mackey said. “I’m excited about what we’ve done and where we’re going.”
