UnitedTech Lender Services (UTLS) is opening a new operations center in Irving, Texas on July 12. President and CEO Timothy Walsh will attend the event, which marks the consolidation of UTLS regional operations. In addition, about 100 new members of staff will be added to the existing payroll to bump up the facilitation of the firm's foreclosure processing, short sales, and title services. “UTLS is committed to continue our growth and investments to ensure that we meet the demands of our valued client partners and to attract the industry’s top talent," said Walsh. "This new Texas center is a key piece to meet those demands." The firm also operates in the Irvine and Baltimore markets. The new center will house the valuations services, lead by Bradley Coburn, as well as sister company UTLS Consulting Services, lead by Baron Wilhelm. “Plans include additional local hiring to bring the total employment of the facility to over 200,” said Randy Martin, Dallas region senior vice president and general manager.
