360 Mortgage Group, a privately-owned wholesale mortgage bank, has announced the addition of Tommy Cruse to its ranks as an account executive in the Southeast. Cruse brings more than 35 years of mortgage origination experience to 360 Mortgage Group. Prior to joining 360 Mortgage Group, Cruse worked as an AE for CBC National Bank; senior vice president for EquiBanc Mortgage Corporation and southeast regional vice president of Flagstar Bank FSB, among others. "360 Mortgage prides itself on attracting the cream of the wholesale crop, and Tommy Cruse is no exception," said 360 Mortgage Group President Mark Greco. "Tommy's strong team building, communication, problem solving, organizational, planning and interpersonal skills make him a natural to help build our successful mortgage operations in the Southeast region. We feel very privileged to have such an experienced and passionate professional on board." Cruse has held executive leadership positions in both the Mortgage Bankers Association of Georgia (MBAG) and the Atlanta Mortgage Bankers Association and has also been affiliated with the Georgia Association of Mortgage Brokers (GAMB) and the Georgia Real Estate Prevention and Awareness Coalition. He holds a bachelor of science in business administration from University of Louisiana. "360 Mortgage Group is redefining the future for mortgage brokers through high-powered technology that affords a broker more control over the loan process," said Cruse. "In a time when most wholesalers are one and the same, I'm excited to join this visionary team in bringing 360 to Georgia and alleviating many of the frustrations that commonly plague brokers. With innovative technology, competitive rates, 24-hour turnaround times, and a true desire for each customer to succeed, I look forward to helping Georgia brokers get on board with 360 as quickly as possible so they won't miss out on all of the incredible benefits we have to offer."
