Kiavi has bolstered its executive leadership team by appointing Alex Urmersbach (pictured) as its new chief financial officer.

The private residential lender tapped Urmersbach to lead its financial strategy and operations, including finance, accounting, capital markets, and business operations functions. In its news release, Kiavi said Urmersbach’s deep experience in the lending and mortgage sectors will further bolster its position as a “reliable, trusted financing partner to real estate investors.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Alex to Kiavi’s leadership team,” said Kiavi CEO Arvind Mohan. “Alex’s extensive experience in driving growth via innovative, value-creating financial strategies will further enhance Kiavi’s ability to reliably serve our customers across the nation, as well as our capital markets partners.”

Urmersbach has over two decades of experience, including time spent at global business process outsourcer Teleperformance and mortgage companies Panorama Mortgage Group, Prospect Mortgage, and Bank of America. He most recently served as chief financial officer of another private lender, Athas Capital Group.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Kiavi, especially as the company continues to demonstrate impressive growth and differentiation in this challenging macroeconomic environment,” Urmersbach said. “I look forward to working with the Kiavi team to build on its already strong foundation and am deeply committed to the organization’s mission of providing real estate investors with the capital they need to scale their businesses and revitalize aged homes across the country,” he concluded.
