Brendan Curley

Brendan Curley has been a strategic leader at First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation, steering the company through an operational transformation in the post-closing department.

He created a successful and more transparent department by eliminating aged inventory, increasing timely deliverability and improving the company’s relationship with its partners. In March 2020, Curley’s team reached the pinnacle of its efforts by achieving a best-company track record of timely delivery of post-closing documents within FGMC’s Ginnie Mae portfolio, hitting a 0% pool delinquency rate. He helped lead the firm through the MERS audit process with zero material findings, placing great importance on staying compliant. These are results of the creativity and innovation Curley brings to his role as he continuously improves processes and tweaks workflows. With his guidance on increasing efficiencies, FGMC has been able to decrease post-closings’ cost-per-loan by more than 250%. Curley’s expertise, attention to detail and personality greatly contribute to the success of the firm.
