The StoneHill Group Inc., a provider of outsource services and staffing solutions to the mortgage industry, including quality control audits, due diligence and post-closing and shipping, has hired Paige Petta as business development manager. Petta joins to further accelerate the company’s aggressive growth strategy in the Texas market, as well as nationally, and will be focused on the outsourcing and fulfillment services group. Prior to joining The StoneHill Group, Petta served as regional sales manager for Rapid Reporting, a provider of verification services for the mortgage industry, where she directed sales efforts in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and New Mexico. “Due to the current market conditions and regulatory environment, there is great demand for quality control, due diligence and mortgage fulfillment services,” said David Green, president of The StoneHill Group. “We are unmatched in the industry in turning around loan quality audits, on average in 30 to 32 days. And we guarantee a 45-day turnaround time in the audit cycle for Fannie Mae loan quality initiative audits. Lenders also are finding that our contract underwriting service saves them on employee and benefits costs, as we’ve built that line of business to underwriting 1,000 loans a month. Over the next 24 months, we’re expanding our company’s presence in the mortgage market, and offering excellent customer service is critical to our growth. That’s where Paige comes in. We’re very happy to have her on board.” For more information, visit www.stonehillgroup.com.
