Urban Lending Solutions (ULS), a provider of residential and commercial mortgage products and services, announced that Michael Forgas has been promoted to president.

“I am confident that Mike will continue to grow this company,” said Chuck Sanders, chief executive officer and founder of Urban Lending Solutions. “He has the experience and industry connections to grow our existing lines of business and diversify our client base. This is a very exciting time for our company.”

Forgas is the former long-term chief executive officer of National Real Estate Information Services and was successful in growing it into a nationally recognized leader in the title, appraisal and settlement services business. He recently joined ULS as chief strategy officer.

“I was pleased with my former role as head of the company’s strategy for development,” Forgas said. “But as soon as we got to the table to begin the work of assessing our strengths and planning our strategy, it became clear that I could serve the company better as president. I am proud to take on that role.”
