Mr. Cooper Wednesday announced the promotion of Vice Chairman Chris Marshall to President, with operating responsibility for the originations and servicing segments and key business functions including technology and digital transformation. Marshall will retain his existing responsibilities pending appointment of a new CFO. The company also disclosed that COO Tony Ebers has resigned to pursue other opportunities.

Mr. Cooper Chairman and CEO Jay Bray commented, “Having demonstrated the resilience of our company and our people during the challenges of the pandemic, we are now ready to move forward with the next chapter in our growth story. We believe we have the operational strength, innovative spirit, and financial discipline to play an even larger role in the U.S. housing and mortgage market. In this regard, we believe we can grow our servicing portfolio to $1 trillion, while delivering excellent service to our customers and investors, generating consistent returns on equity and cashflow, and providing a great working environment for our teammates. With his long track record at major financial institutions, and the contributions he’s made at Mr. Cooper over the last two and a half years, Chris is the right person to lead the business units forward towards this goal.”
