Percy.ai CEO Charles Williams wins 2022 HousingWire Vanguard Award
Data and analytics company is recognized for its impact on mortgage lending and real estate
NASHVILLE, Tenn., October 5, 2022 – Percy.ai, a real estate data and analytics company that combines real-time and archival consumer behaviors with a proprietary machine learning engine to empower real estate agents and mortgage brokers, has announced that Founder and CEO Charles Williams was named a 2022 HousingWire Vanguard Award recipient in recognition of his contribution to mortgage and real estate.
The HW Vanguard Award recognizes leaders of businesses that are actively contributing to the growth of the housing economy and its various sectors, including lending, servicing, investments, and real estate. The recipients are celebrated for their unmistakable impact on the industry at large.
Williams was recognized by HousingWire for his leadership at Percy, where the team is leveraging machine learning to compile consumer behavioral data to help real estate professionals and mortgage lenders find new clients and close more transactions.
This past year saw Percy rise as a serious player in the market with a $10 Million round of equity funding, a partnership with Black Knight, and a rebrand that captured its pivot to expand services beyond real estate and into mortgage lending.
“At Percy, we are working with advanced machine learning to blend real estate and mortgage data that will empower agents and brokers to help more homeowners,” Williams said. “Our mission is to use technology to enable more American homeowners to strategically utilize their home equity and achieve their homeownership dreams.”
HW Media CEO Clayton Collins said this year’s Vanguard recipients stood out for their commitment to think outside the box despite the tough economic landscape.
“The Vanguard award showcases the exemplary leaders in housing who are constantly innovating and evolving despite inevitable economic headwinds,” said Collins. “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.”
