“Perry will help refine Sagent’s cloud-native, open-API servicing and default platforms, ensure they’re relevant for our customers’ multivariate and complex use cases, and help drive adoption of our platforms with major bank and nonbank servicers,” said Sagent CEO Dan Sogorka. “Perry will also lead Sagent’s relationships with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae, and work with regulators to ensure responsible, compliant innovation as we modernize our industry.”

Before Homepoint, Hilzendeger spent over 13 years at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, including time spent as SVP of real estate servicing, and head of retail operations.

“Successfully powering America’s $13 trillion mortgage servicing sector requires expertise in both technology and operations, and Sagent is the only scale software provider with both,” Hilzendeger said. “They already had a formidable team of servicing software specialists, then doubled it with their acquisition of Mr. Cooper’s industry-best fintech team. I’m honored to join these and other servicing and fintech pros like COO Marianne Sullivan to fundamentally change the dynamics of America’s housing ecosystem and deliver positive homeowner outcomes.”
