The Mortgage Collaborative has implemented several changes to its Board of Directors and executive management team, announced the Collaborative’s current Chairman, John Robbins, CMB. Under the new governance structure, David G. Kittle, CMB, will serve as vice chairman of the board, and Debra Still will fill the role of secretary of the board. Both Kittle and Still are former chairs of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), and Kittle is also a founding partner of the Mortgage Collaborative. Another founding partner, Jim Park, is assuming the role of CEO for The Mortgage 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,” said Robbins. “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,” said 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.”
Based in San Diego, Calif., The Mortgage Collaborative was founded in 2013 to empower mortgage lenders across the country with better financial execution, reduced costs, enhanced expertise and improved compliance, as well as helping our members access the dynamic and changing consumer base in America.
