Cloudvirga CEO Michael Schreck is a recipient of HousingWire’s 2018 HW Vanguard Award™. Now in its fourth year, the Vanguard Awards spotlight the housing finance industry’s most successful and influential executives.
Schreck was recognized as a mortgage innovator with a 20-year track record of leading pioneering fintech companies to successful exits (including acquisitions by IBM, Sallie Mae, VeriSign and GSI Commerce that were collectively valued at over $1 billion).
Since joining Cloudvirga in 2017, Schreck has raised over $50 million in private-equity funding to further the company’s mission of transforming and digitizing mortgage origination. His background as a fintech founder, investor and CEO has helped him build an all-star leadership team that includes former executives of Microsoft, Roostify, IBM, Intuit, Altisource, LoanDepot and other industry leaders.
After less than three years in operation, Cloudvirga counts nine of the top 40 non-bank mortgage lenders as customers and recently expanded its product lineup with the launch of Mobile POS and a forthcoming Broker POS in partnership with ARIVE. Prior to Cloudvirga, Schreck was managing director of the Altisource Labs innovation center. Schreck also co-founded General Catalyst Partners, a multi-billion-dollar venture capital firm.
