“Basically, our businesses fall into one of two categories: regulated, as is the case with our mortgage services, and unregulated component services, such as our title, origination and servicing documents offerings. Our new structure will make it easier for us to work with our regulators, accelerate the expansion of our title operations, and allow us to take advantage of synergies among our document and settlement services businesses. While a number of our executives have new leadership roles, they have all been instrumental in building LenderLive and are the right team to take us to the next level,” said Seehausen.
Domestic-based mortgage company and service provider, LenderLive, has recently announced a new organizational structure that aligns its various business divisions under two broad units: mortgages and services. According to a company press release, the two new units are LenderLive Network (Fulfillment, Lending and Servicing) and LenderLive Services (Settlement Services and LenderLive Document Services, which now includes GuardianDocs and Walz Group).
