The 2016 Rising Stars represent the best young leaders in the mortgage industry — in lending, servicing, investing and real estate. Cliff was selected as a 2016 Rising Star because of the impact his innovation, product development, process enhancements and business expansion have had on our company and the industry. Cliff is a dedicated professional whose execution is rivaled only by his vision and commitment to continually search for a better way to get the job done.
Since joining VRM, Cliff has developed and executed a multi-year technology road map that enabled our company to accommodate triple-digit growth as our production volume increased to over 100,000 assets annually.
He also enabled the development and implementation of the company’s proprietary asset management platform, an advanced quality assurance technology, vendor sourcing platform and systems designed to track and report diversity utilization and spend management.
Specifically, Cliff’s development and launch of VRM’s quality assurance platform, Calibre, provided immediate lift through improved compliance and increased efficiencies. The system and infrastructure have undergone several of the most rigorous federal audits, including an annual OIG audit. Most recently, he led the platform development for the industry’s only free online diversity and inclusion self-assessment tool.
