San Diego-based Guild Mortgage has announced the appointment of Michael Querrey as vice president of strategic retail growth for its Mountain West Division.

The 30-year industry veteran will support Guild's retail growth efforts and spearhead recruiting for its branches in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.

“Mike’s extensive experience leading and growing sales teams will be a great asset to Guild,” said Andy Stewart, vice president and divisional manager at Guild Mortgage. “He will help lead our strategic expansion into new markets in the Mountain West division, and his selection for this position will free up our branch managers to focus on production, closing loans, and better [serving] our customers. We’re pleased to have Mike on our team.”

Querrey most recently served as the executive vice president of production at ClosingMark Home Loans. Before that, he spent six years at Castle & Cooke Mortgage as a national sales manager and head of production.

“I’ve always admired Guild for its longevity and history of success over 60 years in the industry,” Querrey said. “I was impressed by its collegial culture, putting people first, and building lifelong relationships with its customers. Guild has also been an innovator in creating the tools and technology loan officers need to truly excel and get more people into homes. These attributes were very attractive to me in accepting this position.”
