UWM Holding Corporation announced that Blake Kolo has been named the new head of investor relations in addition to his current position as chief business officer at UWM. 

Today, UWM Holding Corporation announced that Blake Kolo has been named the new head of investor relations in addition to his current position as chief business officer at UWM. 

Kolo will assume all investor relation responsibilities, which were previously held by Matt Roslin. Roslin will remain active in all parts of the business, but he will mainly focus on his role as executive vice president of compliance and legal affairs at UWM. 

Kolo joined UWM in 2019 as the company’s chief business officer where he handles the management of UWM mortgage funding operations, private label securitization shelf, and mortgage servicing rights activity. 

“Blake has a very diverse background and has been involved in many different industries through many cycles,” said Mat Ishbia, chairman and CEO of UWM. “His seasoned financial background, insight and relationship-driven mindset will be an essential component in our continued growth, strategy and financial performance of the business. Blake’s sound judgment and deep expertise helped guide UWM through one of our most significant growth periods as well as taking UWM public. I look forward to Blake sharing our growth story to all our partners and investors.”

In Kolo’s new role, he will continue to oversee mortgage funding operations and mortgage servicing rights activity, but he will also now  work to form and maintain relationships with investors and analysts around the nation. With 15 plus years of experience in the financial industry, Kolo will ensure that stakeholders are accurately informed on UWM’s business model, financial performance and long-term strategies.

Prior to joining UWM, Kolo was the managing director of the The Siegfried Group, where he brought in more than 40 new clients – a quarter of which were Fortune 500 companies. In under 3 years, Kolo was promoted to managing director, which was the fastest someone has been appointed to that position in company history.
