Since joining Columbus Capital Lending in 2013 as its first employee, Jorge Vidaurrazaga, the company’s vice president of information technology, has implemented technological advances that have increased the company’s production and decreased closing times post-TRID by over 16%, which represents a multimillion dollar revenue gain.

Vidaurrazaga started in the industry as a mortgage loan originator in 2002 at the age of 18. After receiving a degree in IT, he has applied his education to mortgage lending while operating in different capacities, from secondary marketing, loan boarding, operations, human resources and even to accounting.

He has been nominated twice to Ellie Mae’s Hall of Fame for Exceptional Achievement in Loan Quality, once in 2015 and again in 2016. During the 2016 Ellie Mae Experience in Las Vegas, the Columbus Capital Lending team was awarded the top spot in loan quality.  


One of the best pieces of advice I have received throughout my lifetime was this great line, ‘If someone does wrong by you, don’t ever be revengeful, but be successful. As success is the most powerful way of saying thank you to them with a smile.’
