In this role, Mauldin will support Waterstone Mortgage’s nationwide growth strategies — including developing existing markets and adding new branches and sales team members that fit the company’s goals, business model, and culture, the company said. 

She will also collaborate with the company’s sales leadership team to formulate recruiting plans and develop innovative sourcing strategies that will contribute to Waterstone Mortgage’s corporate growth objectives, the company said.

I am thrilled to be part of the Waterstone Mortgage story and to share that story with others.”
