LenderLive Network, a domestic-based, end-to-end mortgage services provider, announced the addition of Sharif Mahdavian as the company’s new vice president of business development for its due diligence division.

In this position, Mahdavian is responsible for developing strategies to leverage the division’s capabilities and refine its value proposition to maximize revenue growth, the company said in a release.

Mahdavian also works with other members of the company’s sales organization to identify and develop cross-sell opportunities.

Prior to joining LenderLive,. Mahdavian spent 10 years at Standard & Poor’s, where he was instrumental in analyzing and evaluating key drivers impacting credit risk, including due diligence standards and practices.

As a leader in the residential mortgage-backed securities group, he was also responsible for market outreach on securitization issues and identifying trends in the marketplace relevant to the analytical process.

“As a consumer of due diligence information, Sharif has deep insight into how these results can drive credit decisions and how to communicate the value of a best-in-class service offering to the decision makers responsible for selecting one TPR over another,” said Mark Hughes, president of LenderLive’s due diligence division.

“I’m confident he will make an excellent addition to not only our division, but our company as a whole,” Hughes added.
