As chief innovation officer for Class Valuation, Scot Rose has been a key driver for innovation initiatives helping to position Class at the forefront of the valuation industry. Having spent two decades in the valuation industry, Rose is very familiar with the issues the industry is facing and the perspectives of stakeholders on each side of the table. When Rose looks at the problems facing the valuation industry, rather than finding the quickest solution, he searches for the most comprehensive solution. In response to the prolonged appraisal turn times, Rose has been heard discussing the ambition of a 24-hour appraisal—but more important than the improved timeline is the critical need for accurate, objective, unbiased, comprehensive data which can be shared transparently to all stakeholders in a transaction. Under his leadership, the innovation team at Class has formed critical partnerships across the industry and developed revolutionary software and digital tools to modernize the appraisal industry. Rose continues to win the trust of industry stakeholders inside and outside of Class.
