Bill King has been named the senior vice president of valuation solutions for Platinum Data Solutions. The former director of valuation services for Veros Real Estate Solutions will bring more than 30 years’ experience in the housing industry to the company. 

The new hire is part of Platinum Data Solutions’ strategy to grow its customer base.

"The mortgage industry is in the midst of a major evolution right now. Risks have reached an all time high and lenders need sound, defendable business practices to close quality loans while keeping up with volume growth," said Phil Huff, CEO of Platinum Data Solutions. 

He added, "Our mission is to provide our clients and business partners with the software and services to do just that. With Bill’s experience and hands-on industry knowledge, not to mention his successful track record in product development and professional network, he will further Platinum’s position as the front-runner in appraisal and business analytics." 

King has been a key force in the creation and wide-spread adoption of some of the industry’s most widely used valuation technologies. He also spent more than 20 years as a forensic expert in the valuation and housing segments, taught dozens of appraisal courses and functioned as a key member of the Appraisal Institute. 

Before his time at Veros, King was founder, president and chief appraiser of ValueOne Appraisal, a Pacific Northwest appraisal company. 

"Platinum has made some incredible contributions to the valuation space in the last ten years and I’m looking forward to what we’re going to accomplish together in the next ten," said King. 

He added, "There’s a lot of opportunity and things are ready to break wide open for the right valuation solution providers. Platinum has the vision, dedication and expertise to lead the way with best-in-class solutions, and the customer care and ethics to create raving fans and customers for life. It’s so great to be part of a team that’s dedicated to excellence and achievement in all areas of its operations."
