Kevin Elliott started his career early in his life. He began working for HSBC at the age of just 18 while making his way through college.
By the time he was 25, Elliott was managing a team of 60 employees as vice president of loss mitigation. Then, just two years later, he was overseeing a team of 90 as the vice president of the foreclosure department. In 2011, Elliott joined Rushmore Loan Management Services, where he is credited with helping build the foundation for the company’s servicing platform as it grew from just 45 employees to about 900 during Elliott’s tenure. Today, as the senior vice president of loss mitigation and client relations, Elliott manages a team of about 130 and is instrumental in building connections with Rushmore’s third-party clients.
WHAT IS ONE HABIT THAT HAS HELPED YOU SUCCEED?
“The best habit I ever developed was being the first to volunteer to take on additional responsibilities when someone leaves the organization. Rather than waiting to be asked or waiting to get work reassigned, taking the initiative to raise your hand and show interest takes pressure off of your manager to cover a difficult situation and gives you a chance to grow and gain experience. By doing this throughout my career, I’ve built great relationships and learned that I had a passion for areas of this industry I might never have discovered otherwise.”
