“The nominations submitted to The 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding. They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
Barber earned the Gold Stevie Award for his contributions in tech innovation over the past year, during which time Barber played a key role in ATTOM’s successful completion of several strategic initiatives. A few of those initiatives include the company’s acquisition by Lovell Minnick Partners to position the company for sustained growth, as well as its acquisition of Onboard Informatics, which added best-in-class neighborhood data to company’s robust offering. Each of these partner initiatives were driven by the company’s mission to increase real estate transparency by arming businesses and consumers with the property data needed to make wise decisions.
ATTOM has also launched multiple new products and services over the past year to bring more comprehensive real estate data to the marketplace, including: ATTOM List, a revamped marketing list creation platform; ATTOM AVM, ATTOM’s lender-grade Automated Valuation Model; ATTOM’s self-service API platform, which consolidated its premium property, neighborhood, analytic and boundary data; ATTOM database to the cloud, with the migration of the 155-million-property; and the launch of ATTOM DaaS, a publishing platform combined with cloud technology, that greatly simplifies data access as well as offers on-demand computing power and storage capacity.
Barber, a 25-year veteran in the real estate information services industry, joined what was then RealtyTrac as CEO in 2015 and spearheaded the creation of the ATTOM Data Warehouse and the company’s subsequent rebranding as ATTOM Data Solutions in 2016, and since then has worked diligently to solidify the company’s brand as the leading supplier of premium property data.
