Churchill Mortgage named Tom Gillen as the company's senior vice president of capital markets. Gillen will oversee the ongoing development of business strategies for the mortgage provider.
Gillen has more than 20 years of experience as a financial services executive with experience in business development, product innovation and organizational leadership.
“Tom’s impressive success in capital markets is a result of his decision-making, strong leadership, effective communication and ability to build cohesion across an organization,” said Mike Hardwick, president of Churchill Mortgage. “His standard of excellence is an invaluable addition to our team and reinforces our commitment to improving every facet of our operations so we can continue providing borrowers with an unparalleled home buying experience.”
Before joining Churchill, Gillen was a founder and managing partner of HedgeAdvisory, an analytics and loan sale solutions provider, where he directed the development of the company’s products and staff and managed its GSE, investor and aggregator relations. Prior to HedgeAdvisory, Gillen served as president of Susquehanna Mortgage, where he oversaw more than 200 employees and more than $16 billion in servicing and origination portfolios.
“Strengthening portfolio performance is just one dimension of a lender’s capital markets strategy; it’s also critical to align those efforts with other areas, such as employees, operations and compliance,” said Gillen. “Churchill exemplifies this approach by exercising a team mentality across departments, which maximizes the potential of every mortgage professional, improves the efficiency of its operations and ultimately enhances the delivery of its trusted financial services.”
