has announced that Mark R. Johnson has been named as its chief strategy officer to create and implement new strategic priorities and ensure core company initiatives, services and partnerships that reflect the company’s plans for growth.
In this role, Johnson serves as a resource across the organization to increase broad cohesion of strategic plans while monitoring the competitive landscape and market conditions to identify opportunities, issues and risks in order to recommend actionable strategies.
“Mark’s proven experience of managing strategic execution and business unit performance metrics at distinguishable companies within our industry makes him the perfect candidate to help lead our strategic efforts,” said Roger Beane, CEO of LRES. “I look forward to working with Mark and the LRES executives to further collaborate with clients, address emerging opportunities and create change within the industry that allows for better accuracy and faster, more efficient delivery of information. LRES seeks to have an intimate understanding of client expectations and is focused on making it easy to do business.”
Johnson has more than 20 years of executive experience working for various Fortune 500 companies within the mortgage industry where he was charged with establishing annual strategic goals and managing budgets, forecasts and corporate reporting. Prior to LRES, he served as division president of Nationstar Mortgage Holdings. Previously he served as division president and chief operating officer of Lender Processing Services (now known as Black Knight Financial Services).
“For a confluence of reasons, the valuation industry is not as efficient as it should, or could, be,” said Johnson. “By continuing to integrate data sciences, advanced workflows and mobile technology, we can change and improve this ecosystem and bring additional lift to clients as well as to the appraiser community and other vendors.”
