TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Clear Capital announced new team members Rich Kuegler and Scott Bares, both as directors of customer development.

“Clear Capital is excited to welcome Rich and Scott to our team. We continue our tradition of investing in industry savvy, creative team members who are also really nice people,” said Kevin Marshall, president of Clear Capital.

Kuegler and Bares will work with all segments of the lending industry, crafting innovative and compliant solutions within a more regulated and scrutinized environment. Clear Capital has invested heavily in progressive valuation products, unique data sources and analytics, and a technology platform.

Kuegler and Bares will help industry peers understand how best to utilize these tools within their organizations, while also introducing Clear Capital’s refreshing levels of support and client care.

Since 1996 Kuegler has held executive-level positions in mortgage finance. Most recently, he was senior vice president at DataQuick.

“Clear Capital’s solutions combine technology and data and analytics with traditional valuations and exceptional levels of service. For years, they have been changing the industry. I’m excited to be a part of this,” said Kuegler.

Bares brings 17 years of experience in the mortgage industry. Prior to joining Clear Capital, Bares held management positions at GMAC, Wells Fargo, Winmark, and most recently Lender Processing Services.

“Clear Capital’s desire to partner with like-minded people, dedicated to making our industry better, coupled with their consistent leading-edge solutions and outstanding customer service, make my job easy,” said Bares.

“Scott does not believe in a one-size, fits all solution. His ability to empathize with our customers will ensure he brings the right solution to the table, every time,” said Marshall.
