Movement Mortgage taps new president to align operations and sales team

Movement Mortgage chief performance officer Mike Brennan is now the company’s president and will report to Movement Mortgage founder and chief executive Casey Crawford.

The promotion, made during a company-wide meeting on Friday, will see Brennan lead all operations and sales functions across the firm. The nation’s sixth-largest retail mortgage lender also said that the move aims to align Movement’s operations and sales divisions – accelerating the company’s growth and expansion in 2021.

“I’m thrilled to make this announcement because I know Mike is a man that has made me better. Mike has the ability to unite and ignite and inspire,” Crawford said. “I’m so excited to bring a man that has a superior skill set to me in aligning and motivating our ops and sales teams into this role. This is the beginning of a new season of success and a new season of significance for Movement Mortgage.”

Brennan, who joined Movement in 2015, has more than two decades of leadership and mortgage industry experience. He served as Movement’s regional director for the Northeast before being promoted to chief performance officer last year.

“My job here is to listen, be your voice and go to battle for you guys. I’m ready to serve,” Brennan said. “The one thing I know for sure is that this company has made me a better person. I’ve never felt so connected to a community or organization. I love this Movement family and this Movement team. I have a responsibility to carry forward what Casey and the entire leadership team has done, and it means so much to me that I can come alongside our people and serve them.”
