Ocwen Financial Corporation has announced that as part of an ongoing cost improvement initiative the company will reduce its workforce at its Waterloo, Iowa residential servicing facility. The decision will affect approximately 300 residential servicing employees, which is 10 percent of the company's approximately 2,900 U.S. employees. All impacted employees will have the opportunity to apply for employment at other Ocwen facilities, including 130 open positions at the Coppell, Texas facility.  

The company will also seek to lease approximately half of its 155,000-sq. foot facility in Waterloo, and it is working closely with the City of Waterloo and the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber’s office of Economic Development to source the right tenant. The company will continue to maintain a presence in Waterloo.

“We understand the impact that these decisions have on our employees, their families, and the community,” saided Ronald Faris, president and chief executive officer of Ocwen. “This was not an easy decision to make, but a necessary one as we look to transform Ocwen to ensure long-term success. We appreciate all the support and dedication our Waterloo employees have shown over the years, and we look forward to remaining part of the Waterloo business community."
