Mr. Daniel L. Perl, Chairman & CEO
Mr. Perl has more than 35 years of experience in all aspects of mortgage finance, including: operations, financial and risk management, asset valuation, and trading. He is currently involved in all aspects of managing CSC and the related fund, CMMI, LLC—from the pricing of assets to disposition.
Mr. Perl founded First Street Financial, Inc. (FSFI) in 2002 to serve as a vehicle to originate, sell, and service a variety of non-prime mortgages, which was followed by Citadel Servicing Corporation in 2003 to manage those assets.
From 1994 to 1999 Mr. Perl was the architect behind the renaissance of LIFE Bank. From 1987 to 1993 LIFE Bank was a $70mm single-branch federally chartered savings bank with 32 employees located in San Bernardino, California and lending primarily in the Inland Empire area. Mr. Perl took over operations in January of 1994 when approximately 20% of the assets were either in delinquent status or foreclosure. Over the following six years, Mr. Perl, as President and CEO, created an institution employing 700 people with over $700 million in assets. As an aggregator, seller, and securitizer of a diverse group of mortgage assets, LIFE Bank originated in excess of $1.0 billion annually and by late 1999 was servicing more than $3 billion in assets. Mr. Perl was actively involved in day-to-day operations, directly controlling opportunistic asset acquisition and secondary market pricing through LIFE Bank’s Capital Markets Group, while interfacing directly with asset servicing and management in addition to his other duties.
Mr. Perl currently holds a Real Estate Broker License through the California Department of Real Estate, a Principal Representative License through the Florida Department of Financial Services and is approved as a Mortgage Loan Originator via the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry.
Ms. Terrie Hagerty, Executive VP & Director
Ms. Hagerty has 30 plus years of lending and asset management experience, including a background in quality control, underwriting, funding, compliance, and servicing.
As Senior Vice President and Director of Secondary Market Operations for First Street Financial, Inc., Ms. Hagerty was in charge of activities that occurred after the trade resulted in the sale of FSFI assets. Ms. Hagerty managed and maintained investor relations for FSFI, successfully overseeing the close of trades from the due-diligence process through the transfer of servicing by interacting with various Wall Street firms including Lehman, UBS, and Deutsche Bank Securities. She further directed the transfer of these assets to their appointed servicers, resolving any issues that might have arisen during the interim servicing period. Ms. Hagerty was also highly instrumental in facilitating the interface between FSFI and AMRS, which resulted in CSC. As part of her secondary and servicing activities for both companies, Ms. Hagerty has been a member of the Asset & Liability Committees (ALCO), an integral part of the Impaired Asset Committees that deal with the disposition of non-performing assets.
