Birchwood Credit Services, a national provider of mortgage credit reporting services, announced the promotion of Barret Elliot to chief operating officer.
For over 27 years, Elliot has worked in the financial services industry, including 18 years in the mortgage and real estate industries. He also has held multiple board and committee positions for several state mortgage associations.
His tenure at the New Hampshire-based Birchwood began in March 2010 and he has become intimately familiar with all departments within the company, from project management and compliance to sales and key accounts oversight. He has taught credit education to a variety of mortgage associations and to customers of Birchwood for many years, and has played an integral part in Birchwood’s philanthropic efforts.
“Barret and I have worked very closely together over the years, and I have seen first-hand the impact Barret’s leadership has had on moving the company forward,” said Larry Avery, senior executive vice president of Birchwood. “Barret’s tenacity will lend well to his new position, and I am looking forward to seeing great things from him and the entire Birchwood team.”
“I’m truly grateful for this opportunity and for the collective efforts of my Birchwood colleagues that have helped me grow into this position," Elliot said. "I look forward to leading our remarkable team in continued growth and future expansion.”
Founded in 1992, Birchwood Credit Services is a nationwide credit reporting agency that has provided financial credit services to mortgage professionals, including accurate mortgage online credit reports, tax return verifications, flood reports, collateral and property reports, credit re-scoring, and related services for over three decades.
