Guaranteed Rate has announced changes to its executive leadership team. Company officials said the changes will help support its record-setting growth.
The changes include John Palmiotto taking on the newly created role of chief production officer and head of sales. He was previously the chief retail production officer for the East and Midwest.
James Elliot has been named president of OriginPoint, the recently formed mortgage origination joint venture between Guaranteed Rate and Compass. He will bring his more than three decades of mortgage industry experience and track record for driving rapid growth to the position.
“John and James are two of the best people and most talented sales leaders in the industry, and we are very excited about the continued positive impact both will have in their new roles,” Guaranteed Rate President and CEO Victor Ciardelli said in a press release. “As head of sales, John will help us continue our incredible growth, and James is the perfect fit to make sure OriginPoint gets off to an amazing start.”
