Optimal Blue Selected as Winner of Dallas 100(TM) Award

PLANO, TX--(Marketwired - October 14, 2014) - Optimal Blue, the premier cloud-based provider of enterprise lending solutions to the mortgage industry, was recently announced as a winner of the 2014 Dallas 100™ Awards. The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at the SMU Cox School of Business created the awards in 1990, in an effort to acknowledge and celebrate the top 100 fastest growing privately held companies throughout the Dallas Metroplex.

A company must meet a number of key criteria in order to be selected for this prestigious list, which include legal status, location, sales history and credit report, as well as character. The SMU Cox website cites recipients as engines of growth, and goes on to state that "the unsung heroes of our economy are the entrepreneurs who build their own businesses and create jobs as fast as large companies eliminate them."

The Caruth Institute will soon recognize Dr. Ivan Darius and Larry Huff, founders and co-CEOs of Optimal Blue, for achieving just that. Known as an innovator in technology for over a decade, Optimal Blue pioneered the most advanced product eligibility and pricing engine (PPE) available within the mortgage industry today, providing lenders, originators and consumers with advanced decision-making and automated workflow capabilities. Optimal Blue has continued to further expand its technology offerings through its secondary marketing, consumer direct and point-of-sale, data and analytics, and real-time compliance services.

"We feel very fortunate to have the exceptional, locally educated talent in the DFW Metroplex that has allowed us to continue on our growth path over the years," said Darius. "The ability to recruit from quality institutions of higher education that are located virtually in our back yard has really made a difference. Huff added, "We are honored to be selected by The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at the SMU Cox School of Business for this prestigious award. It reflects the collective efforts of our outstanding employees who work tirelessly to deliver the highest level of products and services to our customers."

The formal awards ceremony celebrating the 24th anniversary of the Dallas 100™ will take place in November.
