Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company dealing in originations, servicing, and correspondent lending, has recruited John Matuszeski as VP of mortgage servicing, according to an announcement.
Working in Gateway's Tulsa office, Matuszeski will oversee customer service, collections, and escrow operations for the company.
"I look forward to being a significant contributor to the continued growth of the company," Matuszeski said. "Their entire business model is rooted in a value system that drives their growth and success, and that is especially appealing for me."
Matuszeski most recently served as VP of default management services at Bank of the West, a position he held since November 2012. Before that, he worked in VP roles for various other operations for the company, overseeing loan servicing and operations management. During his 23-year stint at Bank of the West, he led growth in the firm's servicing department from a $3 billion to a $10 billion portfolio.
"We are excited to have such a veteran of the industry joining our team, which will only translate to exponential growth for Gateway," said Alan Ferree, president of Gateway Mortgage Group. "His expertise in regulatory compliance, operations management, risk management, development of policies and procedures, and leadership skills will be vital to meeting the company's growth forecasts."
