Carrington Mortgage Services announced the addition of 600 jobs to meet new demand stemming from its growing specialty servicing business, the company said during the Mortgage Bankers Association Mortgage Servicing Conference and Expo in Dallas.

The company is expanding by 150% in Fishers, Ind. and by 100% in Santa Ana, Calif. In the first quarter of 2013 expected growth will be 50 positions in both cities.   

"The trend of servicers going back to their roots and focusing on their core competencies elevates performance across the industry and directly benefits borrowers because it helps ensure that loans – regardless of their status – are being handled by those with the expertise to provide whatever guidance and procedural execution is necessary," said John Alkire, executive vice president of servicing for Carrington.

He added, "Carrington’s reputation as a leading specialty servicer combined with our commitment to growth effectively positions us to be the partner of choice for both lenders and larger servicing organizations looking to best serve their customers."
