“We’re so pleased to expand Kevin’s responsibilities as CEO of Mortgage Banking,” said Gordon Smith, co-CEO of consumer & community banking. “Under his leadership, we have achieved record revenue and net income in mortgage originations, improved our market share, and perhaps most important, greatly improved our customers’ experience at Chase. He’s a great leader, colleague and culture carrier.”
In his previous role, Watters ran four loan production channels, which included retail, consumer direct, correspondent lending and rural housing.
