DALLAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--DIMONT, the largest provider of specialty insurance and loan administration services to the residential mortgage and auto loan industries, announced the company accomplished several key growth and networking milestones throughout 2016.
“This year we focused on growing the company by networking with key industry participants to pursue issues of common interest and by having a strong presence at a variety of significant conferences”
Spurred by a number of strategic alliances, DIMONT publicly offered additional partnership opportunities with providers of property inspection services. Using an API connection, the property preservation vendors’ system connects to DIMONT’s proprietary system, Eldorado, to establish an immediate data delivery language between the two, and allow DIMONT to streamline the hazard claims process.
In March, DIMONT announced an investment from Renovo Capital, a Dallas-based private equity fund. In partnership with a veteran management team, Renovo Capital’s investment enables DIMONT to continue to grow and innovate, while benefitting from Renovo’s sector expertise. In connection with this transaction, Denis Brosnan agreed to a new five-year contract to continue his role as president and chief executive officer of DIMONT.
