ProVest, a national process server management company in the default servicing industry, expanded its operations, opening an office in California to support the state’s needs with evictions, litigation, and home retention efforts. The added office will provide local attorneys, trustees and mortgage servicers with resources necessary to meet California’s needs, ProVest said. The branch will aid efforts to personally notify homeowners of pending events and opportunities. The new location at 7676 Hazard Center Drive in San Diego is ProVest’s 23rd branch nationwide. ProVest plans to open an additional three to four offices during the upcoming year. It's the latest step in ProVest's ongoing expansion efforts. In April, the company appointed National City Mortgage veteran Les Zeiter as vice president of operations for its Ohio office. Zeiter brought more than 20 years of mortgage industry experience, including multiple positions at National City. Write to Diana Golobay.
