Mortgage and settlement services industry veteran Matthew Lichtner has joined Accurate Group, a provider of real estate appraisal, title and compliance services, as senior vice president and national account manager.
In addition, Richard L. Heltzel III will move from his current position as director of ValueNet, a division of Accurate, to join the company’s sales team as vice president and national account manager.
Lichtner has close to 30 years of 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.
In a release, Scott Vilseck, national sales manager for Accurate, explains that Lichtner’s new role is 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.”
Lichtner “will concentrate on the West Coast, specifically California, where there is tremendous growth opportunity for the Accurate Group,” Vilseck adds. “He will also market our appraisal management company services to all areas of real estate lending.”
Heltzel began his career with Accurate in 2010 and was an integral part of the company’s growth as an appraisal management company. 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, Heltzel relocated and assumed the role of director, overseeing Accurate’s GroundWorks inspection business.
