The lending division of Carrington Mortgage Services LLC has announced the addition of Jeff Gillis as senior vice president of operations and the promotion of Mariano Demarin to national sales director for its retail lending division. The recent changes reflect the company’s ongoing commitment to strengthening its leadership team and to better serve the market with expanded offerings, faster turn times and a broader geographical reach.
A 20-year mortgage industry veteran with a reputation for consistently innovating and implementing business strategies to drive positive results, Jeff Gillis’ experience in mortgage lending is complimented by a diverse background across multiple disciplines, including operations, technology and marketing. He was most recently chief strategy officer for Nations Direct Mortgage. As Carrington’s senior vice president of operations, Jeff’s first order of business will be to complete Carrington’s conversion to Encompass360 loan origination software.
As national sales director for Carrington’s retail lending division, Mariano Demarin will assume responsibility for all sales and branch operations within the company’s retail channel. A real estate lending professional of more than 20 years, Mariano joined Carrington in 2010 as regional vice president–a role in which he successfully expanded the company’s network of retail lending locations and was directly responsible for establishing the company’s East Coast presence.
“Carrington’s aggressive plan for 2013 calls for increasing our capacity, expanding our offerings and widening our reach into new markets–tasks that require the guidance and commitment of a strong and experienced leadership team,” said Ray Brousseau, Executive Vice President of Carrington Mortgage Services LLC’s Mortgage Lending Division. “I’m pleased to welcome Jeff Gillis as Senior Vice President of Operations and to congratulate Mariano Demarin on his well-deserved promotion to National Sales Director for retail lending. With leaders such as these gentlemen in place, I’m confident in our ability to effectively meet the increasing demands of the market and provide enhanced service to our growing customer base.”
