has announced that Robert Burns, an experienced sales executive with a background in mortgage loan origination, has joined the company as senior sales executive. Burns will be responsible for promoting and closing sales for both the company's Appraisal Management services and its proprietary AIM-Port appraisal management technology platform that lenders use to manage the appraisal process in-house. He will interact with lenders nationwide.
"Bob has a broad range of experience in the mortgage business, from lending to technology sales," said Mark Tague, vice president of sales for Appraisal Logistics. "He will make an excellent addition to our growing team and I'm very glad to have him with us."
Previously, Burns spent 10 years at Xome, formerly StreetLinks/Assurant, ultimately serving as sales director. Before entering the technology business, Burns was an originator. He was a loan officer for Indiana Mortgage Funding, a loan originator and underwriter for Homeland Capital Mortgage and Branch Manager for CrossStone.
"I'm very excited about helping introduce more lenders to AIM-Port," Burns said. "Technical debt has long been the excuse used by lenders to avoid making important changes or upgrades to their technology. AIM-Port has no technical debt and it's fully customizable, allowing each lender to manage their process their way. Best of all, if someone asks whether AIM-Port can do what they want it to do, I can answer with confidence that it can."
