“The Mortgage Collaborative was founded upon the idea of empowering independent mortgage companies to achieve growth and financial stability, and each of these executives has demonstrated a unique commitment to helping the Collaborative fulfill its vision,” said Robbins. “Not only are these changes to the Collaborative’s Board and management designed to strengthen its core mission, but they also portend exciting emerging opportunities for the Collaborative overall.”
