Mortgage industry veteran joins company to lead expansion.

Calque, which helps established lenders offer non-contingent mortgages, recently announced the appointment of mortgage industry veteran Dan Mugge as chief operating officer.

Mugge will lead the company as it secures more high-profile mortgage lending partners to offer mortgage solutions, including its flagship product, The Trade-In Mortgage, the company said. Calque operates in 17 states, with additional states identified for expansion in 2023.

“I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to join a company that is entirely focused on helping homeowners skip the heartache of synchro-selling,” Mugge said. "What I love about Calque is it addresses the challenges for consumers in a way that doesn’t disintermediate lenders and real estate agents and they pay much less than alternative offerings for the convenience."

Mugge brings nearly 25 years of experience leading technology and business management at both startups and large public companies to the role. He has experience building relationships with large and small companies to exceed millions in annual revenue at several mortgage leading technology companies such as CoreLogic and Black Knight Financial Services.

“Dan's deep background in financial technology, combined with his proven track record as an executive, makes him the ideal candidate to guide our growth,” said Jeremy Foster, chairman at Calque. “As we expand our footprint from 17 states to the entire U.S., we know we have the best person to help us grow while maintaining our focus on providing an excellent experience for consumers, real estate agents, and lenders.”

Calque, launched in 2021, specializes in working with lending partners to offer loan products that empower homeowners to buy a new property and move before they sell. Unlike other buy-first mortgage lending solutions, homeowners can choose their own real estate agent and work with any lender in the Calque network of mortgage providers.
