As senior vice president of origination operations, Jennifer Corcoran manages the fulfillment, operations and underwriting for all four Caliber channels. Described by her peers as an extremely quick study with tremendous energy and daily focus, Corcoran accomplished a 12% reduction in cost per loan in the first quarter 2018 from the first quarter of 2017. During that same period, she led a 15% volume increase.
Corcoran says she enjoys the fast pace and growth at Caliber, the ability to observe, recommend change, execute and then measure the success of her teams. Her motto is, “What gets measured gets done.” She leads 1,700 employees across the country through a decentralized retail model with the willingness to listen and provide options.
When asked about why she chose this industry, Corcoran said, “The mortgage industry has allowed me to grow professionally and personally. It is an industry that affords equal opportunity to those who excel, regardless of their education and background. If one is willing to learn and put forth the effort, opportunities exist. That is what keeps me in mortgages, even when the stress levels increase. The mortgage industry is ever-changing, which provides all with frequent challenges to adapt or be left behind.”
