Stonegate Chief Executive Officer Jim Cutillo called it “an exciting time” in the announcement and said the company will continue to build its national presence.

As a result of the transaction, Stonegate will realign its management structure.

Former Nationstar executive Kevin McCafferty will now lead Stonegate’s third-party origination channel as executive vice president – third party origination.

Three third-party origination sales division will be headed by Michael Cullen, Paul Wyner and Greg Armstrong. All three have been designated as senior vice presidents and will report to McCafferty.

Former Nationstar executive Fred Bolstad is executive vice president – national sales manager with responsibility for retail

Todd Fliss, Mark Etchison and Vic Polich will each serve as senior vice presidents reporting to Bolstad.
