For more than 25 years, Bill Rice has been a pioneer in modern real estate and mortgage industry database management. In his role as vice president of data acquisition and fulfillment for First American Data & Analytics, Rice is responsible for the day-to-day management of First American’s bulk data distribution platform. Through Rice’s leadership, he has been able to build First American’s data assets into the premier source of data available in the industry, expanding the company’s data coverage from 700 counties to now more than 3100 counties. Over the past 12 months, Rice has been focused on managing the growth and enhancements to the company’s data distribution platforms and its data as a service (DaaS) initiative. This initiative will reduce the time, cost and overall effort of data acquisition and enable clients to consume and work with the data where they work: in the cloud. Under Rice’s direction and contributions, the company has now created a data-loaded distribution system that is second to none in the marketplace.
