Guaranteed Rate taps new executives to direct product expansion

Guaranteed Rate has tapped three new executives to accelerate the company’s vision towards becoming the top fintech in the nation through recent investments in end-to-end digital solutions.

According to Guaranteed Rate, the new fintech will be designed for rapid scaling nationwide and feature low-friction customer experiences that emphasize speed, flexibility and convenience. It will also enable the company to develop higher-value relationships with customers.

“Guaranteed Rate is committed to becoming the nation’s number one fintech,” Victor Ciardelli, president and chief executive officer of Guaranteed Rate, said in a media release. “Our company has long been the digital leader in mortgages, and we are perfectly positioned to use our incredible technology platform to offer awesome new end-to-end digital solutions that will make our customers’ lives easier and better.”

Muralidharan will report to Ciardelli, while Cavale and Tripathi will report to Muralidharan.

Prior to joining Guaranteed Rate, Muralidharan was the executive vice president of lending at HSBC, where he led the digitization of the mortgage business and helped launch personal loan and credit card products. In his new role, he will be directing the expansion into new financial products.

“Guaranteed Rate has a tremendous opportunity to grow by offering additional products and services that meet our customers’ needs,” Muralidharan said. “Our goal is to produce game-changing fintech solutions that provide unparalleled speed, ease and convenience for our customers.”
