has announced the expansion of its sales team with two new additions as Matthew Lichtner, a mortgage and settlement services industry veteran joining the company as senior vice president, national accounts manager; and Richard L. Heltzel III, who will be moving from his current position as director of ValueNet, a division of Accurate Group, to join the sales team as VP, national accounts manager.
Lichtner has nearly 30 years of industry experience, having served in a number of senior level sales positions within the title insurance and information industry. He has extensive knowledge in property data products and services, technology platforms, and business process outsourcing across all segments of the mortgage industry.
“Matt’s focus will be to drive new title and valuation sales, including our industry leading ValueNet suite of products, using his unique relationships within the banking and real estate finance industries,” said Accurate’s National Sales Manager Scott Vilseck. “Matt will concentrate on the west coast, specifically California where there is tremendous growth opportunity for the Accurate Group. He will also market our AMC services to all areas of real estate lending.”
Heltzel began his career with the Accurate Group in 2010 and was an integral part of the company’s growth as an appraisal management company (AMC). During that time, he managed Accurate’s Alternative Valuation Division in Cleveland where he successfully cultivated a nationwide network of inspection companies along with overseeing Accurate’s reseller relationship with ValueNet. When Accurate acquired ValueNet, Rich relocated and assumed the role of director, overseeing Accurate’s GroundWorks inspection business.
“Rich has been extremely successful in his role as Director of Accurate’s ValueNet suite of products,” said Scott Waxman, chief appraiser and president of Accurate’s ValueNet Division. “Given his prior success within the company, I’m looking forward to watching his continued development as he diversifies and expands within our organization.”
