The California-based mortgage compliance service provider, Mortgage Quality Management and Research, (MQMR) has announced the appointment of Jeff Christensen as its VP of Sales. In this role, Christensen will be responsible for leading sales, driving new business opportunities and expanding awareness of the MQMR brand in the market.
“Compliance is one of the main core competencies upon which MQMR hangs its hat, and to have someone that has been as deeply immersed in mortgage compliance as Jeff Christensen is a tremendous win for our organization,” Michael Steer, President at MQMR said. “It took me more than two years and countless interviews to find the right fit for our unique corporate culture, and I look forward to seeing the next phase of MQMR’s growth with such a talented and knowledgeable individual like Jeff leading the way.”
Christensen brings more than 10 years of mortgage compliance experience to MQMR, having served as both the CFO and CEO of Mortgage Compliance Advisors (MCA), of which he was a founding member in 2008. MCA was a residential mortgage outsource provider for quality control and risk management solutions with more than 400 clients. When MCA was acquired in 2014, Christensen worked with the executive team to continue to improve and grow the combined business.
“I’ve known Mike Steer for years and have always been impressed with the solutions MQMR provides and the manner in which MQMR services its customers,” Christensen said. “When the opportunity to join the firm presented itself, the decision was an easy one to make–especially when one considers the company’s reputation for client-focused service and industry-leading expertise in mortgage compliance, audit, and risk management–and I look forward to helping the firm reach its next stage of growth while delivering invaluable services to the mortgage industry.”
Christensen holds a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting and a Master of Professional Accountancy from the University of Utah.
