SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Joel Gottsegen, cofounder of Qualia Title & Closing Software, has been named as a 2017 HW Rising Star. HousingWire selects the award winners based on their demonstrated leadership and innovation across the housing industry.

“Our Rising Stars are always smart and talented, but one of the things that characterized our winners this year was the sheer scope of what they accomplished for their companies. They drove impressive results, whether they were measured by growth, profit or innovation,” said Sarah Wheeler, HousingWire Magazine Editor.

Gottsegen, who received his degree in computer science specializing in artificial intelligence, was chosen for his ability to use advanced technical skills in concert with cross-functional leadership to guide Qualia’s product roadmap and execution. To date, Joel has led the team to develop dozens of seamless vendor integrations — including lenders, underwriters, banks, and more — which finally allow title agents to be connected with their service partners at every stage of the real estate transaction.

“At the end of the day, my top focus has been and will always be providing the absolute best possible experience for our users. I am extremely honored to have received this award along the way,” Gottsegen said.
