2015 year in review ~
Connect to Human Networks; Groups and Associations of People
Opportunities do not float like clouds. They are firmly attached to individuals. If you’re looking for an opportunity, you’re really looking for people. If you’re evaluating an opportunity, you’re really evaluating people. If you’re trying to marshal resources to go after an opportunity, you’re really trying to enlist the support and involvement of other people. A company doesn’t offer you a job, people do.
From the Start–Up of You Pg 153 Reid Hoffman, Cofounder and Chairman of LinkedIn
2015 was another great year for Strategic Growth Partners 360, which more importantly impacted our clients and candidates equally. Impactful - perfectly describes the 2015 recruiting experience. Another year of slightly more than 1 billion of retail production transitioned from significantly challenged companies to companies that are thriving, evolving and growing - even with the ever demanding intense pressure and constant oversight in the mortgage sector.
Reid Hoffman is very insightful with the quote above, and taking it one step further … apply the traits of Leadership, Character & Integrity – all just words until you witness them as living embodiements in the “people” that lead and are building the most attractive and functional mortgage platforms humanly possible in the this new high tech / high touch age of mortgage finance.
2016 – Change will be the catalyst for growth!
SGP360 looks forward to a continued contribution to our clients while presenting top tier candidates and their teams. We know that the significant changes in the coming year will require true mortgage professionals exemplifying the traits of Leadership, Character & Integrity to attract and sustain growth. Additionally, companies with the optimum combination of Efficient Operations, Products, Pricing, Culture and Compensation, all with the dedication and resources to support new hires, will be in the top positions at the end of 2016.
With strategic intentions, we recruit people and connect them to Human Networks – what happens after that is simply amazing!

He relocated to Phoenix in 1982 to start his own marketing business, resulting in two decades of business based recruiting within the Distribution Technology industry. After earning a BFA degree from Arizona State University in 1985, Chris subsequently taught e-commerce, marketing and business development seminars for local leaders in the Phoenix market.
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.
April of 2009 - December 2012 As Managing Director with a small Texas based recruiting firm, he contributed immediately to the company’s revenue and client base. 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, 2013 – Strategic Growth Partners 360 was born. After 13 years of recruiting partnerships, it was time to brand my recruiting efforts personally and a fulfill a desire to build a recruiting platform that would represent the mortgage industry with integrity and results.
03.2016SGP360 has the privilege of working with some of the very best mortgage professionals in the business – Clients, Candidates and Recruiting Partners alike. Being involved in the lives of mortgage professionals as they look at new opportunities and transition their teams to new and better realities requires a recruiting company’s full attention and the highest level of mutual trust & confidentiality. As challenging as it can be, it is very rewarding to contribute to others in this financial services vertical. It is incredibly special to be relevant and one of the primary catalysts for people to change and grow in their careers as they enter new chapters in their lives. In an industry that continues to challenge, individuals that can adapt with a sense of urgency will win the day for themselves and their team, ultimately impacting their clients and partners in a very positive way.
