Over the past 25 years, I have learned the mortgage industry from the ground up. After beginning my career as an accountant, I joined Paul Diamond in the mortgage industry at Lumbermen’s Investment Corporation in 1986. In 1989, I assisted in the development of Centex Corporation’s “CTX Mortgage Company,” where I served as a Top Loan Officer, Sales Manager and later as Division Vice President. While serving as Division Vice President of CTX Mortgage Company, I ran the most profitable division in Illinois. In 2004 I became the Regional Vice President of the State of Illinois for the Midwest District for First Magnus Financial Corporation, and in 2007 I joined forces with Flagstar Bank. I served as the District Manager of the Illinois Group until 2009, and I assisted in the development of Diamond Residential Mortgage Corporation, where I am the currently Chief Financial Officer. I am a very detailed and accomplished mortgage professional that truly understands all the inter-workings of the mortgage business.
I currently reside in Gurnee, IL with my wife Tracy and our four children. We all are very active within our community. I enjoy competing in Triathlons and have participated in the Hawaiian Ironman World Championships six times.
