Walter Ledda, C.E.O.
Chief Executive Officer and Chairman
Walter Ledda is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and a classically-trained concert violinist. A visionary with a nose for business and an ear for music, this Southern California native founded Morgan Drexen Integrated Systems in 2007. He has been involved in the financial world for two decades and has implemented complex automation to keep up with the ever-changing needs of modern business environments.
Prior to serving as CEO of Morgan Drexen, Ledda was one of the founding executives of the nation’s first internet-based mortgage provider. Ledda took what was once only a brick-and-mortar industry and created a bold, new model for the 21st century.
Subsequently, as an executive with a former debt-relief services company, he pioneered the automation of debt resolution services. Ledda saw a demand in the legal/ financial market for the automation of complex documentation and the outsourcing of paraprofessionals to American law firms. Ledda envisioned a virtually paperless workflow that would ultimately reduce operating costs for attorneys and allow them to focus on their clients. Ledda worked with some of the top software engineers in the business to create “Morgan Drexen Integrated Systems,” or MDIS. The small company of five had humble beginnings in an office park in Anaheim, but since 2007, has grown to fill five floors of office space in Costa Mesa, CA, with more than 340 employees.
In addition to his business acumen, Mr. Ledda is a talented, classically-trained concert violinist. His parents inspired his love of music at a young age. Ledda’s mother was the director of Maria Ledda Conservatory of Music in Anaheim, CA. His father operated a piano restoration company. Ledda serves on the marketing committee for Pacific Symphony based in Orange County, CA. His compassion for children recently led Morgan Drexen to an affiliation with Make-A-Wish and the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). Morgan Drexen partners with numerous charities throughout the region. Ledda believes an important component of doing good business is giving back to the community.
