has announced the addition of Tom Gillis to lead the company’s West Correspondent Sales team as Senior Vice President of Correspondent Sales. Gillis will work alongside DJ Ziggas, who recently joined the company
as Senior Vice President of Correspondent Lending and oversees the company’s East Division.
“I am excited to join a company that is not only a leading investor, but is also committed to creating a great experience for its correspondent clients and team members,” said Gillis. “TMS’ efficient process and state-of-the-art servicing platform SIME finally bring innovation and change to the servicing space, creating a great borrower experience and an improvement in loan performance.”
Gillis brings nearly 15 years of mortgage experience to TMS, which includes leadership roles at US Bank Home Mortgage and Bank of America Home Loans. Most recently, he was Vice President Regional Manager at PennyMac, where he managed the largest book of business in the West Coast.
At the start of this year, TMS flipped the correspondent lending market on its head and announced a bold new approach to its correspondent clients–referred to by the company as “CAREspondent Lending”–demonstrating that TMS is doing more than investing in loans, but creating lifelong relationships with its borrowers. TMS delivers on this through its servicing platform SIME, Servicing Intelligence Made Easy
, that brings great care to the customer portfolio of homeowners.
“Tom Gillis is an amazing addition to our correspondent team,” said Ali Vafai, President of TMS. “His impressive track record of growing and managing correspondent accounts blends perfectly with our leadership team, bringing us one step closer to our goal to become a top five player in the correspondent space.”
