Recognizing the severity of COVID-19’s economic ramifications on the U.S. housing market, Graboske led the Black Knight Data & Analytics team to begin compiling daily, loan-level information on the number of U.S. mortgage holders seeking pandemic-related forbearances. This complimentary information, leveraging Black Knight’s extensive data, research and analytics capabilities, was presented in the new McDash Flash Forbearance Tracker Report. This daily report was made available to the mortgage industry, government agencies and the GSEs to provide a clear understanding of the magnitude of the mortgage forbearance situation and helped lenders and servicers benchmark their company’s activities against the industry and make informed decisions regarding next steps. Graboske has also demonstrated his professional excellence and leadership by assembling a talented and diverse leadership team. He has personally sponsored and mentored emerging and diverse talent throughout his career.
