"The valuation space is ready for a new era of innovation, and Gary is the perfect executive to lead us on our trailblazing journey," said Class Appraisal President John Fraas. "With his experience in systems integration, automation, and business process management, he will allow us to create a frictionless appraisal experience for our clients through technological innovation—all with the goal of creating long-term solutions for increased borrower satisfaction."
 
Ferguson has more than 20 years of experience in enterprise application development—most in the mortgage industry—and is proficient in multiple technology stacks and development methodologies. In his new role, Ferguson will work closely with customers, partners, and internal stakeholders to help define the company's technology strategy and development roadmap.
