Through a series of incorporations and acquisitions, the company transitioned to several different iterations through the years, eventually being acquired by Fidelity National Financial and renamed Black Knight Financial Services in 2014. Since that time, Black Knight has received accolades from Housing Wire, Mortgage Technology magazine, Jacksonville Business Journal and Forbes. Black Knight clients include New American Funding, Old National Bank, Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, AmeriFirst Home Mortgage, JP Morgan Chase and Home Point Financial.\n\nIn 2018, Anthony Jabbour was named Black Knight’s chief executive officer. Jabbour started out with IBM’s Global Services group before moving on to FIS and eventually working his way through the ranks up to COO for the Banking and Payments business. He is responsible for Black Knight’s overall vision and direction as well as management of the company’s offerings.
