Over the past three years, David Aach has helped Blue Sage Solutions gain marketwide recognition as the leading end-to-end, cloud-based mortgage technology solution. He oversaw massive growth, including a 100% increase in client installations of the Blue Sage Digital Lending Platform and a tripling of the company’s employee headcount. During the past 12 months in particular, he directed a shift toward serving mid-market lenders, credit unions and banks struggling amid challenging market conditions. Aach helped them quickly thrive and lower costs by streamlining implementations of Blue Sage’s technology. Aach has played an instrumental role in the launch of new standalone products, including LION, Blue Sage’s point-of-sale technology, and its document management solutions, in addition to other integrations and enhancements of Blue Sage’s comprehensive Digital Lending Platform for all channels of business.
As chief operating officer, Aach led the development of the organization’s operational excellence, financial reporting and industry partnerships. Aach also oversaw the creation and implementation of the company’s HR process, including training programs to ensure the company meets all legal and regulatory requirements. Over the past year in particular, Aach leveraged several strategic hires to help guide Blue Sage’s transition from a de-centralized delivery model to one based on agile principles and effective program management, quality and an enhancement in the company’s ability to produce roadmaps and release schedules for new products.
