Brian Carlsen has been promoted to vice president of risk management at Cherry Creek Mortgage, a nationwide, full-service mortgage lender.
Carlsen is a 28-year veteran of the mortgage industry. He joined Cherry Creek in 2013. Prior to his promotion, he served as senior credit policy manager and used his extensive working knowledge of loan production and manufacturing processes to support numerous initiatives and departments within the company.
Carlsen was heavily involved in opening Cherry Creek’s Pacific Northwest wholesale division. He also served as an area production manager in the western states and provided support for Cherry Creek’s compliance department, including policies and procedures management, HMDA and Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) oversight, and special projects research.
In his new position, Carlsen will support the growth of Cherry Creek Mortgage and its affiliated companies—including the recently launched Found It Home Loans unit. Carlsen will continue to develop Cherry Creek’s comprehensive risk control framework designed to protect both the company and its customers.
“Brian’s background and holistic understanding of our business makes him extremely well suited for his new position in oversight of our risk management team,” says Rick Seehausen, president and chief operating officer of Cherry Creek Mortgage, in a release. “He has been and continues to be a valued part of the Cherry Creek family.”
