Mortgage Production Solutions performs outsourced production management services as well as recruiting/placement services employing a “matchmaker” approach focusing on interviewing and identifying the personality and culture of the employer and the “compatibility” to both of the individual employee candidate. Having been an originator and serving in senior and executive production management positions for 36 of my 39 year career in mortgage banking, I/we recognize that in the production arena in particular, it is almost more difficult to find a good employer than to find good employees and from that perspective the COMPATIBILITY factor is the single most important component of a successful and enduring placement.
