2017 Rising Stars: Sean Faries

CEO of Land Gorilla

Faries name

Sean Faries is CEO of Land Gorilla, which provides comprehensive construction loan management solutions. The company looks to streamline the construction lending process and help lenders manage 3.5 times more loans with built-in automation tools, program development and pre-close services.

Land Gorilla’s Construction Loan Manager provides cloud-based construction loan software to smooth post-close loan management workflow.

In the last three years, Faries has grown Land Gorilla more than 1,700%, ranking as high as No. 230 on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies. In addition, the company is ranked No. 10 in the list of top construction-related companies by Inc. Magazine.

Faries takes an active role in his community, organizing charitable events that have included the delivery of Thanksgiving dinners to a homeless shelter and donating computers to a local school after the theft of their laptops. 


Always take the high road.  My father taught me this at a young age.  Servicing the mortgage industry takes integrity and character.  Taking the high road means making the tough decisions even though they may not be popular or easy.  This piece of advice has been instrumental in my life and the growth of Land Gorilla.  I hope that some day my son finds it as valuable as I have.
