ARMCO MBA Award 2017
The MBA started the award in 2002 to recognize executives who have made significant technology innovations and contributions to the mortgage industry. Each year the award is given to a select group of highly successful mortgage technology leaders who, over time, have made major strides with various types of technology automation. There are only a handful of winners that win the coveted award each year. Mr. McCall is one of only five technology executives selected for this prestigious award in 2017.

“Technology is critical to the growth of our industry and the success of our members’ businesses,” said MBA Chairman Rodrigo Lopez, CMB. “We have been fortunate to have a dedicated and diverse array of true innovators who continue to push the envelope and move our industry forward. MBA is honored to recognize the men and women making significant technological contributions to the real-estate finance industry.”

Mr. McCall has more than 20 years of executive-level experience in the mortgage industry. He is a seasoned expert in quality control, loan origination and underwriting, forensic loan auditing, mortgage fraud, loss and litigation, and real estate-based transactions. Notably, Mr. McCall has experience working both as a mortgage banker and a mortgage technology leader. This unique blend has been instrumental in helping him fully understand, work hands-on with and develop technologies that benefit the mortgage industry as a whole.

“Phil is a highly respected subject matter expert on the topic of loan quality control and compliance. He is also a proven developer and implementer of enterprise-class technology solutions that enable lenders and servicers to meet their organizational, GSE, CFPB and investor audit requirements,” stated Avi Naider, chairman and chief executive officer at ARMCO. “We are excited that the MBA designated Phil to its Tech All-Stars list comprising highly accomplished mortgage technology executives. Phil has given a great deal back to the mortgage industry to help move it forward; this award is well-deserved and we congratulate Phil on his ongoing success.”

Mr. McCall was the primary designer of ARMCO’s ACES Analytics®, the first mortgage quality control benchmarking platform in the industry, which aggregates anonymized data from many companies to produce industry benchmarks. The ACES Analytics benchmarks are published in ARMCO’s Mortgage QC Quarterly Industry Trends Report. This groundbreaking report breaks down loan defects identified during the post-closing quality control process by utilizing the Fannie Mae loan defect taxonomy along with trending, detailed analysis and key benchmarking data.

“To win the MBA’s Tech All-Star Award is an enormous honor for me and I’m humbled and flattered,” stated Phil McCall, COO of ARMCO. “I’ve been a technologist and business person my entire career helping to develop and evangelize high-impact software.
