BlackFin Group, a management consulting firm serving the banking and mortgage industries, has appointed Todd Luhtanen to Chief Operating Officer. A calculated appointment to support the firm’s continued growth and the recent expansion of BlackFin’s offerings to now being an umbrella of specialized services and software offerings. Prior to BlackFin, Todd was consulting businesses on efficiency and growth as the President of Talan Consulting but is most recognized for his over twenty-year career delivering lending solutions as the Co-Founder, CTO, and former COO at Dynatek, Inc.

They continue to bring value to the lending community and innovate the lending process.”

Kemph says, “After long and careful consideration of candidates we are excited to add Todd to our executive team. His senior leadership, integrity, knowledge, skills, and experience – accompanied by his relentless commitment to client success, puts us in the best position to scale our exponential growth in 2023. Offering a broad set of services and software now, we needed someone who possessed the experience and ability to effectively define operational methods, strategies, and frameworks that will allow us to effectively grow without sacrificing the customer experience we are recognized for providing.”
