HousingWire Designates Chris Anderson of MCT Trading to its 2015 List of Rising Stars
SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 18, 2015 –
MCT Trading, Inc. (MCT), a recognized industry leader in mortgage risk management providing pipeline hedging, best-execution loan sales and centralized lock desk services, announced that its SVP, Chris Anderson, has been named to HousingWire’s 2015 Rising Stars list.
HousingWire states that the Rising Stars list is comprised of mortgage professionals who don’t just show potential, but those who can actually point to real accomplishments that have propelled their companies and the industry as a whole into new levels of growth and profit. Nominations cut across all mortgage finance segments — origination, servicing, secondary, technology, compliance, investing and real estate.
Mr. Anderson was named to the list in part for the contributions he has made at MCT and to the industry in a short period of time. Specifically, he manages LockCentral™, MCT’s successful outsourced mortgage lock desk service. Under his leadership, LockCentral has become the largest outsourced lock desk in the mortgage industry, serving over 40 clients, locking with over 75 investors, and averaging almost $1.5 billion a month in locked loans in 2015.
Mr. Anderson attributes the success of Lock Central to the strength, versatility and work ethic of his now 23 strong staff members. “Without my team, none of the amazing strides we have made in the last three years would ever have been possible,” stated Anderson.
HousingWire adds that the 40 winners have developed groundbreaking new software, re-engineered entire systems, and launched their own start-ups, among other major undertakings and successes. They have served as change agents at their companies and in the mortgage industry, have seen dramatic growth in sales, in market share and in influence.
“Our 2015 Rising Stars program recognizes some of the brightest young leaders in our industry. Whether they work in lending, servicing, investing or real estate, these winners exemplify the passion and energy of true change agents, igniting transformation within their companies and across the whole mortgage finance space,” said Paul Jackson, publisher and CEO of HousingWire. “HousingWire is proud to celebrate these professionals — all under 40 — who are ‘moving markets forward’ by creating avenues for innovation and growth. In seizing present opportunities they are fueling the future of our industry, and we can’t wait to see what they do next.”
