Guaranteed Rate has appointed two new Divisional Managers, the company announced in a press release.
Ryan Ogata, who joined Guaranteed Rate in 2017, has been named Divisional Manager overseeing the Northwest market, including Alaska, Oregon, Washington, and Northern California.
Ogata previously served as a regional manager. Guaranteed Rate’s loan volume in Northern California rose more than 600% in the four years since he joined the company.
“Guaranteed Rate offers best-in-class technology, service, and sales leadership, which allows our teams to expand their presence in our markets and better serve homebuyers throughout the entire mortgage process,” said Ogata. “I’m excited to continue recruiting and developing top talent in sales and operations.”
Tim Sorenson, who also joined the company in 2017, has been named Divisional Manager of the Southwest market, including Hawaii, Utah, Nevada, and Southern California. As a regional manager, Sorenson developed and led top-performing teams.
“I’m most passionate about working with Guaranteed Rate to help my employees scale their business, reach their full potential, and accomplish goals they never thought were possible,” said Sorenson. “I strive to help create industry leaders who will continue propelling the company to even greater heights.”
As part of the leadership change, Pat Bolan, who is currently Guaranteed Rate’s Divisional Manager of the South Central states, will expand to oversee sales in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
“I’m excited by this opportunity and look forward to helping Guaranteed Rate continue its record-breaking growth,” said Bolan.
“As we aim to become No. 1 nationwide in both purchase volume and recruiting growth, we need the leadership of top industry performers like Ryan, Tim, and Pat to help get us there,” said Guaranteed Rate’s Chief of Retail Production John Palmiotto.
