CrossCountry Mortgage LLC, a nationwide mortgage lender with headquarters in Brecksville, Ohio, has hired Chris Knapp as executive vice president, where he will be responsible for recruiting, as well as setting and achieving the company’s sales and production goals. Knapp will be located in the company’s Chicago office.
Knapp comes to CrossCountry Mortgage from Guaranteed Rate, where he held several executive positions, most recently as chief retail production officer. Prior to Guaranteed Rate, Knapp served as the president of Lakeshore Funding for more than eight years.
"When a mortgage company is owned by a loan originator and run with an originator's mindset, there is a total commitment to putting the originators, their borrowers and their referral partners first, even ahead of the company's own brand," Knapp said. "That's the culture I've been looking for my entire career, and it's one of the cornerstones of how CrossCountry Mortgage does business."
