Jim Park has been named CEO of The Mortgage Collaborative, an independent lending cooperative serving small and midsize mortgage lenders and community-based lending institutions.
Park is a founding member of The Mortgage Collaborative.
In addition, the organization has implemented several changes to its board of directors. Moving forward, David G. Kittle will serve as vice chairman of the board and Debra Still will fill the role of secretary of the board.
Kittle and Still are former chairs of the Mortgage Bankers Association. Kittle is also a founding partner of the collaborative.
‘The Mortgage Collaborative was founded upon the idea of empowering independent mortgage companies to achieve growth and financial stability, and each of these executives has demonstrated a unique commitment to helping the Collaborative fulfill its vision,’ says John Robbins, CMB, current chairman of the board, in a release. ‘Not only are these changes to the collaborative's board and management designed to strengthen its core mission, but they also portend exciting emerging opportunities for the collaborative overall.’
‘In today's competitive and highly regulated mortgage environment, mortgage lenders must be able to take advantage of collective buying power to streamline operations while improving overall compliance and efficiency,’ adds Park. ‘The Mortgage Collaborative is working to level the playing field for small and mid-sized mortgage lenders in meaningful ways, and I look forward to working with the industry-leading board of directors to fulfill this vision and deliver on the important work of the collaborative.’
