California-based Carrington Mortgage Holdings has announced that Rick Sharga has rejoined the company as an EVP. In this role, Sharga will serve as the primary spokesman for Carrington, and will be responsible for public relations and communications, as well as branding and marketing strategies for all of the Carrington Companies.
“We’re glad to have Rick back at Carrington,” said Kevin Cloyd, Chief Administrative Officer for Carrington Holding Company. “Carrington has numerous products and services, from our rapidly growing loan origination and servicing platforms, to our consumer-facing online services such as Carrington Connects, which manage every step of the home ownership and mortgage journey, and Rick is uniquely qualified to deliver our messages successfully in all of our markets.”
Sharga has long been one of the country’s most frequently quoted subject matter experts on all aspects of the mortgage and real estate industries and has appeared regularly in major broadcast, print, and online media. Prior to rejoining Carrington, Sharga served for five years at Ten-X, first as EVP of the company’s Auction.com business unit, and most recently as the company’s Chief Marketing Officer, responsible for re-branding the company and helping position it for its successful 2017 sale to private equity firm Thomas H. Lee Partners.
“Carrington’s mix of products and services is as diverse as it is unique, and the company has a great deal to offer to consumers, agents, and brokers,” Sharga said. “The market is looking for the kinds of products and services that Carrington offers, from loan products that enable credit-challenged borrowers in underserved communities to buy a home, to the new Connects platform that provides homebuyers an integrated solution for finding a home, getting a loan, and closing the transaction. It’s great to be back, and I’m looking forward to building the Carrington brand across all of our audiences.”
Sharga is a member of the Corporate Board of Governors of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, the Advisory Board of the Asian Real Estate Association of America, and the Five Star Institute’s National Mortgage Servicing Association. He was included in Inman News’ Inman 100, an annual list of the most influential leaders in real estate, in both 2013 and 2014.
