Class Valuation appoints director of digital strategy

Real estate valuation and appraisal firm Class Valuation has added Tim Staudenmaier to its senior leadership team as director of digital strategy.

In his new role, Staudenmaier will be responsible for driving technology and processes to support the company’s efforts towards valuation modernization and broad adoption within the mortgage industry. He will also play a key role in developing the company’s proptech to analyze collateral risk.

Before Class Valuation, Staudenmaier served as manager of collateral strategy and innovation at Fannie Mae. Prior to that, he was a residential and commercial fee appraiser for ten years and spent six years in appraisal review and collateral underwriting.

“The addition of Tim to our leadership team will help us define and implement our rapidly growing technology ecosystem while partnering with industry stakeholders,” said Mike Detwiler, chief executive officer at Class Valuation. “We look forward to sharing more of our work with the industry as we finalize the creation of an unbiased, more accurate, and more efficient fingerprint of the home.”

“Thanks to emerging technologies allowing full digitization of the home, a true digital fingerprint will soon follow the history of every property for greater insight that cannot be delivered by data alone,” said Staudenmaier. “I am confident Class Valuation is leading our industry into the future of how we define collateral risk through enhanced data collection processes and technology and am excited to join such a forward-thinking company.”
