Wes McDaniel Named Chief Appraiser at CoreLogic

Apr 06, 2011

CoreLogic, a provider of information, analytics and business services, has announced that Wes McDaniel has been promoted to the newly created role of chief appraiser for CoreLogic Valuation Services. In his new position, McDaniel will be responsible for ensuring the quality of appraisal content developed by the CoreLogic in-house appraisers and its national panel of more than 14,000 independent appraisers. In this role, he will be integral to our efforts to comply with Dodd-Frank Act, Interagency Guidelines, and other relevant federal and state regulations. Based in Westlake, Texas, McDaniel will report to Greg Dennis, head of appraisal management services. “Over the last several years, with the advent of HVCC and Dodd-Frank, the landscape of the appraisal community has changed,” said McDaniel. “One of my primary functions will be to work closely with our panel to provide them the tools, technology and support they need to improve their production, quality and individual profitability.” Prior to his promotion, McDaniel served as director of appraisal valuations for CoreLogic Valuation Services, where he led quality control operations and built its staff appraiser operation to more than 100 employees. McDaniel joined CoreLogic in 2009 after 17 years with Bank of America/LandSafe Appraisals. There, he was responsible for appraisal production in the Western-half of the United States. Earlier in his career, McDaniel worked in private appraisal practices, performing both residential and commercial assignments, and as a commercial review appraiser for the Resolution Trust Corporation. He has held a Certified General appraisal license in Arizona for nearly 20 years, is a charter member of the Collateral Risk Network and earned a Six Sigma Green Belt for improving on-time appraisal performance. He received both his BS in finance and MBA in management from the University of Arizona. “Identifying and engaging with the most qualified, most competent appraisers is a key challenge for every AMC,” said Dennis. “Having a leader and expert like Wes to manage our panel and appraisal practice is a significant advantage for CoreLogic.”
