RamQuest Promotes Schuster to Chief Product Officer
June 3, 2014
RamQuest Inc. promoted Mary Schuster to chief product officer and will mentor and lead a team of title and settlement experts with extensive RamQuest product background.
This team will define, manage, support and promote the RamQuest product offerings and will work in concert with the customer community and the rest of the RamQuest team to further the RamQuest suite of products, the company said in a release.
In a related move, RamQuest and sister company op2 are now working more closely together to offer the next generation of title software solutions. Both companies will maintain independent identities in the industry but will now leverage shared management to better utilize resources and better serve customers. Paul Bandiera is now leading both companies at the strategic level as president. RamQuest said this move will ensure access for RamQuest customers to op2’s compliant, private cloud, hosting solution that will prove beneficial in the coming months with the CFPB changes and as demand for ALTA’s Best Practice compliance increases.
“Mary’s promotion to Chief Product Officer is a reflection of the role she has always played in strategic design and direction of RamQuest’s products,” said Paul Bandiera, president of RamQuest. “Mary has always been instrumental in shaping the evolution of our products and will continue to do so as our Chief Product Officer.”
Schuster joined RamQuest in 2008 as director of operations where she helped build the company’s implementation, training and support teams. She then became vice president of legislative affairs at RamQuest, while at the same time serving as president of op2. During this time, she orchestrated the development and rollout of RamQuest’s 2010 HUD, worked to help educate the industry on the opportunities presented by the revised settlement statement, while also leading the op2 team to double the size of that company’s customer base.
