Opteon USA, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based international provider of valuation, advisory, and property services, said Tuesday that it has promoted Lee Trice to Managing Director.
The promotion comes less than a year after Trice joined Opteon USA's strategic leadership team as executive vice president of growth & strategy. In his new position, Trice will lead Opteon’s strategic initiatives.
A 30-year mortgage industry veteran, Trice came to Opteon from Valucentric, where he played a key role in building a successful staff appraisal firm. Following Opteon's acquisition of Valucentric, he was essential to the smooth integration between the two companies, Opteon said.
"Lee has great instincts and has played a huge role in the company's aggressive M&A growth strategy," said Chris Knight, Opteon CEO. "I am confident there is no better person to lead our growth and innovation initiatives than Lee Trice."
Over the past 18 months, Opteon has grown by over 80%, invested in an industry-leading leadership team, expanded to new markets, and is piloting technology to produce two-day turn times, the company said.
"My journey at Opteon has been tremendously rewarding," Trice said. "I look forward to leading Opteon USA as we revolutionize the valuation space."
