Guild Mortgage Company has announced the hiring of two new district managers, Michael Brown and Mike McCabe, who will recruit, train and manage top talent throughout California and strengthen Guild’s presence in the state. Joining Guild Mortgage as Southern California district manager, Brown brings with him more than 25 years of experience as a mortgage professional. Brown has an outstanding reputation as a high-energy, results-oriented leader who consistently exceeds company goals. He specializes in business development, recruiting and training, and will lead Guild’s expansion throughout Los Angeles, Ventura, Orange County, Inland Empire and San Diego. Before joining Guild, Brown held a position as builder sales manager for the Western U.S. for MetLife Home Loans. There he provided strategic direction toward increasing purchase loan production throughout the company’s retail channel. Brown also spent 17 years leading the National Builder Division for the West at Countrywide and Bank of America, where he helped recruit, train, manage and lead a team that would contribute significantly in retail loan volume. “Southern California is a key market for us and my overriding goal is to grow the company’s purchase volume market share by helping our team build relationships with Realtors, builders and other important strategic partners,” Brown said of his new role at Guild. “Another important contributor to our success is to attract the very best talent. Guild already has a solid team, foundation and reputation. So my role is to help expand an already successful operating model.” With more than 30 years of experience in the mortgage industry, McCabe joins Guild as the Northern California district manager. McCabe will recruit managers to the region and oversee the opening of new branches in the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Sacramento, Central Coast, and the Central Valley. Prior to joining Guild, McCabe served as vice president at Mortgage Solutions of Colorado, building the company’s presence across six states with strategic recruiting, hiring and business planning. McCabe has also built markets for Union National Mortgage, and nationally top performing areas for Wells Fargo and Chase Manhattan. Since joining Guild, he has already successfully recruited Branch Manager James Wick, and worked with him to open a new Guild branch in Westlake Village, Calif. “The opportunity to work with Guild in this capacity is very exciting. Guild is a company that is rich with historical successes and talent... Best of all, I will have the pleasure of working with long-time trusted friends again," said McCabe. "Guild has a phenomenal story and business platform that can and should be expanded upon throughout Northern California and I plan on doing just that, with key business relationships and more great talent.”
