2018 - High Tech meets High Touch

SGP360 just completed its 5th year impacting the mortgage industry – and quite a year it was!  We worked coast to coast and identified some of the best opportunities to present to our ever-evolving client base (6 new clients added in 2017 - 3 Banks and 3 Mortgage Bankers!).  Over 5 Billion in previous funded production was vetted and then decked up for our clients to evaluate and have the opportunity to assimilate into their collective organizations – our partnership contribution created a successful end result - SGP360 clients continue to grow and expand nationally!


A key observation from 2017 that will impact everything moving forward; the technology revolution in the mortgage industry has arrived and is being embraced and implemented at an incredible pace.  Our clients are tech savvy and are positioning themselves to manufacture a loan from "cradle to grave" using every technological advantage available – thus lowering the cost to do business, ultimately strengthening their profitability and overall organization, while at the same time benefiting the consumer with time and cost savings.  We continue to refine our client base and have added select companies that offer aggressive technical advantages to provide the best opportunity for mortgage professionals to be "High Speed / Low Drag" while creating more time for them to be at the top of their "High Touch" game with their referral partners and borrowers.


With Strategic Intentions we recruit leaders and connect them to great companies – what happens after that is simply amazing!

Partnering with a colleague in 2002, Chris helped build a recruiting company with a Mortgage Banking specialty, delivering highly personalized results recruiting exclusively for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage nationwide. After successfully opening multiple states on both coasts, he focused in his efforts in Arizona, Southern California and Nevada. Chris transitioned in excess of $800 million annually in branch acquisitions, with top performers in the retail, builder & emerging markets divisions for WFHM. At the end of 4Q 2008, Chris was one of the last external recruiters actively working with WFHM as they completed the Wachovia acquisition, temporarily ending their need for additional production and growth.

During this 3 year 8 month period, he placed executives, transitioned in excess of 3 billion of existing retail mortgage production,and sourced acquisition targets as well as adding 9 new retained and contingent clients to the roster. His results required a client centric team approach – a massive effort on behalf of literally 100’s of quality mortgage professionals at every level within corporate America – true leaders with the vision to see what is possible and capitalize on change.

January 1st, 2013Strategic Growth Partners 360 was born. After 13 years of recruiting partnerships, Chris felt it was time to brand his recruiting efforts personally and a fulfill a desire to build a recruiting platform that would represent the mortgage industry with integrity and results.
