Co-Founder Named New CEO for Mortgage Returns

A new CEO has been selected at ""Mortgage Returns"":www.mortgagereturns.com/. The company recently announced the appointment of co-founder Jim Blatt to the executive position.


Blatt has more than 15 years of senior level leadership in the industry, as well as extensive experience in small business development. In his new role for Mortgage Returns, Blatt will be responsible for providing relevant and automated marketing solutions for the company's 225 financial institutions customers around the U.S.

Commenting on his ascension to CEO, Blatt said, ""Mortgage Returns has reached five consecutive years of 50 percent or more revenue growth. Last year, we hired a new chief technology officer and doubled our investment in our IT team.""

Continuing his official statement, Blatt added, ""I am confident that our commitment to enhancing the technology-driven element of our solution will continue to provide outstanding results for more than 6,000 originators using our award-winning marketing platform.""

Prior to helping found Mortgage Returns, Blatt helmed the expansion of retailer ""Mary Englebreit"":maryengelbreit.com/, successfully doubling revenues for the company's stores in just one year. Blatt has also performed as the senior financial manager for footwear entity, ""Wild Pair"":www.wildpair.co.nz/, which has more than 200 stores nationwide.

The launch of Mortgage Returns represented a departure from Blatt's previous retail experience, and the Missouri-based company specializes in full-service customer retention management and automated marketing solutions for mortgage originators. Mortgage Returns is focused on helping clients maximize profitability from customers, prospects, referral partners, and marketing initiatives, and the company serves an estimated 6,000 originators around the country.

In closing, Blatt noted, ""Over the last three years, there has been tremendous consolidation in the mortgage industry. While many mortgage companies and originators have left the business, our clients have experienced record growth. The average originator using our automated marketing platform realized 21 new loans found by Mortgage Returns in the first year, an average return on investment of more than 3,000 percent.""
