Digital Risk, a Maitland, Fla.-based risk management and compliance solutions provider, today announced plans to add more than 1,000 full-time U.S.-based positions this year. Positions will include experienced underwriters, attorneys, processors, compliance experts and appraisers.
By the end of the year, the company expects to nearly double its headcount to 2,300 while establishing several new facilities across the country to handle the anticipated growth. According to Digital Risk, the company's growth is being driven by housing market dynamics and the regulatory environment.
‘We have earned the trust of many of the nation's largest lenders, servicers and investors, and as the mortgage industry recovers, they are seeking our assistance in developing higher-quality new loan portfolios,’ says Peter Kassabov, CEO of Digital Risk. ‘We currently conduct a rigorous analysis on over $8 billion in performing and nonperforming loans each month, which we expect to double by year-end due to significant demand for our component servicing, underwriting and compliance solutions.’Â
