Maura E. Cohen has been promoted to Vice President, Director of Mortgage Services and Consumer Lending for Centric Bank and Centric Financial Corporation, the company announced.
“Helping individuals and families realize their dreams of homeownership and helping them take the first step to create generational wealth and economic stability is a real passion for me,” says Cohen. “Being part of a team that is a true partner to our mortgage clients throughout their home-buying and refinancing processes makes work a pleasure.”
She moves up from her previous role as Vice President of both areas, in which she monitored mortgage originations, processing, and settlements. During her tenure, she contributed to Centric Bank’s record-breaking loan growth.
Her previous experience includes working for Dauphin Deposit Bank in consumer lending and serving as Assistant Vice President and Senior Retail Lender.
Cohen is a member of Centric Bank’s four-time American Banker Most Powerful Women In Banking Top Team. The bank is known for being female-driven, with five of its eight executives being women, including founder, chair, and chief executive Patricia Husic.
“Maura was one of our earliest team members when we embarked on the Centric Bank vision of community banking, and she has been a dedicated Centric Bank employee for 15 years,” says Husic.
“She keeps our customers at the center of every process, enabling her to move from a top consumer loan underwriter into a management role in mortgage operations to this promotion as a leader of the mortgage department. As Director of Mortgage Services, Maura’s focused, consistent, and intentional sales culture will increase and sustain the bank’s profitability. An early ambassador of our Centric Bank Way, she continues to expand our community outreach to first-time homebuyers.”
Cohen will oversee eight employees across the spectrum of mortgage origination.
