Cobalt Mortgage President Keith Tibbles said, "We're excited to add Dominic's extensive talent acquisition expertise and enthusiasm to our team. He will help broaden our reach as we seek additional loan originators to fulfill our long-term growth plan." Keith partnered with co-owner and Executive Vice President of Sales Ernie Gehre to found Cobalt Mortgage in 2001, building its solid foundation on the pillars of responsible lending, customer education and community outreach.

Having proven his ability to attract and retain top mortgage bankers, Dominic's initial recruiting focus will be on growing Cobalt Mortgage's sales staff in the West. "One of the things that most impressed me about Cobalt was the authenticity of the executive management team," said Dominic. "Keith Tibbles, Ernie Gehre, and Dave Bochsler are truly focused on developing genuine relationships with employees. Rather than just looking to fill seats, they seek out like-minded sales leaders who thrive in a loan officer-centric culture. They have a reputation for enabling open, direct communication with the sales team, allowing everyone to contribute ideas on improving operational processes and systems. "

With Dominic now on board, optimism for the company's continued success is higher than ever. "Adding Dominic to our team is indicative of our ongoing commitment to expanding our presence in major markets throughout the country," said National Sales Manager Dave Bochsler. "Thanks to an efficient sales and operations platform and our long-standing reputation for responsible lending, Cobalt Mortgage has not only persevered through a challenging period in the mortgage industry, but is poised to capture an increasingly larger market share in 2014 and beyond."
