Former ICE Leader Tony Fox Moves To Dark Matter

Mortgage tech veteran Tony Fox has been named Chief of Client Engagement at Dark Matter Technologies, company leaders announced in a press release.

In his new role, Fox will direct Dark Matter’s account management and client success teams. He will report to Chief Revenue Officer Sean Dugan.

“I am thrilled to join Dark Matter and continue to work with a tremendous team and clients that I’ve known for years,” Fox said. “At Dark Matter, we’re on a mission to improve the mortgage process and optimize the workflow for lenders and their customers. I’m proud and grateful to be part of this vision for the mortgage market, and I couldn’t have found a better fit to continue my commitment to this industry.”

Fox spent five years with Black Knight prior to its acquisition in account management leadership roles. After the ICE changeover, he served as Director of Client Engagement.

His other experience includes leadership positions at 1st Priority Mortgage and M&T Bank. He holds a bachelor’s degree in math and economics from the University at Buffalo and his Master of Business Administration from Canisius College.

“We are immensely delighted to welcome Tony to our team, stepping into a role where his expertise and exceptional performance are already well-established,” said Rich Gagliano, CEO at Dark Matter.

“It’s hard to think of a more important role than making sure the clients have a voice, that we’re listening to what they need, and deliver products and services in line with those needs.”

Dark Matter Technologies arose from the Black Knight/ICE merger, emerging as a rebrand of Black Knight Origination Technologies after its Empower loan origination software suite and the Optimal Blue product and pricing engine were sold to Toronto-based Constellation Software.

Its relatively new CEO Rich Gagliano, previously Black Knight’s president of origination technologies, said in a statement that the company will continue on its path of revolutionizing the originations business.

“We understand that our existing long-term client relationships extend far beyond innovative technology; our clients rely heavily on our team’s unique knowledge and experience to enable their success. To that end, I’m proud to announce that our leadership team and 1,300-plus employees will focus on a smooth, uneventful transition plan for our clients,” he said.
