JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Oct. 18, 2022 – Today, Black Knight, Inc. (NYSE:BKI) announced that Sandra Madigan, the company’s chief digital officer, has been named by HousingWire (HW) as a 2022 Vanguard Award winner. The HW Vanguard Awards program recognizes C-level industry professionals and business unit leaders who have become leaders in their respective fields within housing and mortgage finance and are advancing the industry. HousingWire, one of the nation’s most influential sources of news and information on housing and mortgage lending, chose 100 professionals for this prestigious industry recognition.

Madigan is a financial services technology veteran, who is leading Black Knight’s efforts for digital transformation in mortgages. She conceptualized and supported  the development of innovative digital capabilities that provide for a better customer experience through instant access to information; the ability to start the loan process anywhere, anytime; and the ability for borrowers to continue interacting with servicers digitally after the loan closes. These efforts also include digital solutions that help improve operations for Black Knight’s clients – from loan pre-qualification and approval, to processing, closing, servicing and beyond. By leading Black Knight and the mortgage industry in the adoption and understanding of Lean Agile and unique design-thinking principles, Black Knight’s digital product development has become significantly more efficient and collaborative for more intuitive, user-friendly products that increase processing speed and elevate the customer experience.

“Sandra continues to amaze us with her extraordinary problem-solving skills and ability to challenge the status quo, overcome operational or other barriers and find a way to deliver on what our clients and their customers want and need. We appreciate HousingWire recognizing Sandra’s achievements,” said Joe Nackashi, CEO, Black Knight.  “As our company’s most avid digital evangelist, Sandra is focused on our continuous effort to bring to the industry innovative modern solutions. She set a new bar in our industry for consumer interaction with the delivery of Servicing Digital and is now driving the transformation of the servicer experience.  I have no doubt her efforts to lead our development of digital products with an API mindset significantly accelerates Black Knight’s ability to bring innovative solutions to market quicker for the benefit of our clients, helps them drive growth and perform business processes with greater ease and efficiency, and will continue to shape our mortgage industry “

In an Oct. 4 press release Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media, announced, “The Vanguards award showcases the exemplary leaders in housing who are constantly innovating and evolving despite inevitable economic headwinds. This year’s honorees have proven to be laser-focused on the goals of their organizations, recognizing and seizing opportunities when they present themselves and refusing to settle for the status quo.”

“Being chosen by HousingWire as a Vanguard is a great honor shared by talented professionals across the Black Knight enterprise and the client teams we work with,” Madigan said. “I’m grateful to everyone who shares my passion and commitment for driving game-changing digital innovation that will be the key to future success for the mortgage industry.”
