Optimal Blue has promoted two senior leadership positions from within. Seever Sulaiman has been named chief technology officer, and Jeremy Moreno has been named vice president of sales. Both will join the ranks of Optimal Blue’s senior leadership team to further the company’s position as a leader in secondary marketing technology.
PLANO, Texas – Oct. 16, 2023 – Today, Optimal Blue announced the appointment of two senior leadership positions, both promoted from within. Seever Sulaiman has been named chief technology officer, and Jeremy Moreno has been named vice president of sales. Each leader brings decades of relevant experience, which further positions Optimal Blue to deliver the technology and services the mortgage industry relies on for pricing, hedging, trading, and more.
“One of the things that sets us apart at Optimal Blue is our experienced and talented people, and these internal promotions are a reflection of that,” said Scott Smith, interim CEO, Optimal Blue. “Both leaders have impressive credentials, proven success in their fields, and most importantly – a deep understanding of the Optimal Blue business and our clients’ needs.”
As chief technology officer, Sulaiman will lead Optimal Blue’s technology and development strategies, with a focus on engineering solutions that anticipate the future needs of the industry. He is a demonstrated mortgage technology expert with more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry and more than 29 years in software development, technology execution, and product management.
Sulaiman previously served as chief information officer and cofounder of Resitrader, a trading platform acquired by Optimal Blue in 2018. He has also served as chief technology officer of multiple companies throughout his career, including Altisource’s Equator and the Applied Analytics division at Lender Processing Services, which was spun off as Black Knight and is now part of ICE.
Moreno, Optimal Blue’s newly appointed vice president of sales, will develop and lead the company’s customer acquisition and relationship growth strategies. Moreno holds more than 20 years of experience in sales leadership, with demonstrated success in year-over-year growth, team development, and customer retention. Prior to joining Optimal Blue in 2012, he served as both a regional account executive and sales manager for CT Corporation, a Wolters Kluwer Business.
As Moreno transitions into his new role, Optimal Blue’s Keith Anderson will also assume an elevated position as senior regional vice president of sales. In this capacity, Anderson will work closely with Moreno to establish direction and strategy for Optimal Blue’s sales force.
