LRES has named Mark Johnson as its chief strategy officer. Johnson will oversee the creation and implementation of new strategic priorities and ensure core company initiatives, services and partnerships at the national residential and commercial mortgage services company.
Johnson will also serve as a resource across the company to increase broad cohesion of strategic plans while monitoring the competitive landscape and market conditions to identify opportunities, issues and risks in order to recommend actionable strategies.
A seasoned executive, Johnson has more than 20 years of executive experience working for several Fortune 500 companies including serving as division president of Nationstar Mortgage Holdings. Previously, he served as division president and chief operating officer of Lender Processing Services (now Black Knight Financial Services).
“For a confluence of reasons, the valuation industry is not as efficient as it should, or could, be,” Johnson said. “By continuing to integrate data sciences, advanced workflows and mobile technology, we can change and improve this ecosystem and bring additional lift to clients as well as to the appraiser community and other vendors.”
Roger Beane, CEO of LRES, said Johnson’s proven experience of managing strategic execution and business unit performance metrics at distinguishable companies within the industry made him the perfect candidate to help lead the company’s strategic efforts.
“I look forward to working with Mark and the LRES executives to further collaborate with clients, address emerging opportunities and create change within the industry that allows for better accuracy and faster, more efficient delivery of information. LRES seeks to have an intimate understanding of client expectations and is focused on making it easy to do business.” Beane said.
