United Shore has announced that Alex Elezaj has been hired as the company’s chief strategy officer. Elezaj was previously the CEO of Troy-based Class Appraisal, a residential real estate appraisal management company.

“We are thrilled to have such an amazing leader join our team, and his main focus will be aligned with our mission to help our mortgage broker partners grow,” says Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of United Shore. “He is in total lockstep with our company from a leadership vision and culture standpoint, as he believes mortgage brokers are the best place for loan originators to work and for borrowers to get a mortgage.”

Under Elezaj’s three-year tenure as CEO of Class Appraisal, the company tripled its annual revenue and built strategic business partnerships with more than 300 mortgage lenders and more than thousands of the nation’s top-performing appraisers.

“What United Shore has done over the last several years, growing its business at such an impressive rate despite market declines, as well as building itself into one of the workplaces in the country, is insanely impressive,” says Elezaj.

Elezaj has received several mortgage industry awards, including being selected as one of National Mortgage Professional’s “40 under 40” honorees. He was also a Mortgage Professional America’s “Hot 100” selection, as well as a 2017 Vanguard award winner by Housing Wire.
