2019 Rising Star: Ankur Agrawal

Director of Engineering, Tavant


Ankur Agrawal is truly a Rising Star, and is an original member of Tavant’s consumer lending practice.

Agrawal is currently serving as the company’s director of engineering. For more than 17 years, Agrawal has played an instrumental role in the development of Tavant’s VELOX products. Under his leadership, Tavant has worked with lenders to build mortgage technologies including LOS, point of sale and broker and correspondent portals from the ground up. His extensive experience in this field has permitted the company to efficiently mitigate potential risks, and allowed for large scale technology projects to be delivered in a timely manner.

In 2018, Agrawal was awarded the Accredited Mortgage Profession specialist designation, and was also recognized for accountability and execution at Tavant’s annual Excellence Awards.

“One habit that has helped me succeed in my career is solution focused thinking. Instead of dwelling on the problem or the situation, and obsessing over the negatives, shift the focus away from the problems and towards useful solutions. It is easy to find reasons why thing can’t happen, but the real challenge is to discover how and why it can happen.”
