Top Industry Recognition Highlights Significant Impact Technology Provides Construction Lenders

San Luis Obispo, CA — December 1, 2022 — Land Gorilla, the leading technology provider of construction loan management software, announced today that Land Gorilla CEO, Sean Faries, was named a 2022 HW Tech Trendsetter. HW Tech Trendsetters are top product and technology leaders who have been essential in bringing innovative tech solutions to market for housing industry clients. The 2022 HW Tech Trendsetters were selected by HousingWire’s selection committee based on their vital and dynamic contributions to their organizations and to the housing industry as a whole.

Construction loans have never been quick or easy, but Sean Faries has done more than perhaps any other individual to change this picture through Land Gorilla. Under Sean’s leadership, Land Gorilla has developed many innovations to its construction loan platform. Forward-thinking lenders who have adopted Land Gorilla have freed themselves from historically time consuming and frustrating inspection and draw disbursement processes to reduce draw times by 80% or more—while doubling and in some cases tripling construction loan volumes.

“The HW Tech Trendsetters award gives us the opportunity to spotlight the names and faces behind the tech companies that are transforming the housing economy,” said HousingWire Editor and Chief Sarah Wheeler. “These innovators are critical to the outstanding performance of their mortgage and real estate clients and have, yet again, surpassed all expectations by tackling some of housing’s most pressing issues.”
