Thompson has led mortgage fintech innovation, digital transformation, servicing, and regtech strategy for almost two decades. Her fintech management consulting firm, Consigliera, has advised top servicers and fintechs on these matters, and previously, she was head of default servicing at Flagstar.

The firm said that Thompson’s addition “accelerates” its vision to “remake loan servicing from the consumer perspective and deepens Sagent’s relationships with customers, regulators, and the fintech community.”

“Rewiring America’s $12 trillion mortgage servicing sector requires nimble but highly technical software that connects all consumer, servicer, regulator, investor, and partner needs,” said Dan Sogorka, chief executive officer at Sagent. “And Sagent’s new chief product officer, Courtney Thompson, truly gets how these needs fit together into smart tech platforms. She’ll help us go faster delivering simplicity consumers expect without compromising on the depth servicers require.”

“Sagent’s talent and resources to execute on scale modernization and my mission to transform the servicing industry’s people, process, and technology while honoring the humans within it are a perfect match,” said Thompson. “The servicing community must meet homeowners where they are in this highly regulated and digital world, and I can’t wait to dig in with the Sagent team, its customers, and the industry at large to solve this once and for all.”
