In his new role with Xactus, Peterson will oversee the company’s financial operations, including managing the strategic direction of its accounting and finance functions, developing policies, procedures and financial controls, overseeing financial systems, ensuring the accuracy of internal and external reporting, identifying investment opportunities, securing funding, and managing risk.

“Becoming the CFO of Xactus represents a unique opportunity for me to join the market leader with its proprietary technology platform, cutting-edge data and verification products, seasoned team of experts, innovation-driven culture, and a client base that is 6,500 strong,” says Peterson. “I look forward to playing a meaningful role in enhancing Xactus’ financial and transactional systems and processes to further advance the modern mortgage.”
