Guaranteed Rate recently announced the appointment of two new divisional managers to oversee operations in its Western markets.
Ryan Ogata will lead the company’s Northwest market, including Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Northern Carolina. Ogata joined Guaranteed Rate in 2017 as a regional manager. Under his leadership, the company’s loan volume in Northern California increased more than 600% over the last four years, according to a press release.
“Guaranteed Rate offers best-in-class technology, service and sales leadership, which allows our teams to expand their presence in our markets and better serve home buyers throughout the entire mortgage process,” said Ogata. “I’m excited to continue recruiting and developing top talent in sales and operations.”
Tim Sorenson will oversee the company’s Southwest market, including Hawaii, Utah, Nevada and Southern California.
With the new shift in leadership, Pat Bolan, who currently leads operations in the South Central states, will expand his territory to oversee sales in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska.
“As we aim to become No. 1 nationwide in both purchase volume and recruiting growth, we need the leadership of top industry performers like Ryan, Tim and Pat to help get us there,” said John Palmiotto, chief of retail production for Guaranteed Rate.
