Valley View, Ohio, June 1, 2016 – Safeguard Properties, the largest mortgage field services company in the U.S., is pleased to announce that Kathy Cogan, assistant vice president of account management, has been named a 2016 Rising Star by HousingWire magazine.
“We congratulate Kathy on being recognized for the significant role she plays in Safeguard’s client interactions and growth during her 13-year career with the company,” said Alan Jaffa, Safeguard’s CEO. “She is a critical part of Safeguard’s executive team and the company’s continued success.”
Kathy’s path within Safeguard has been impressive since she joined the company in 2003 after graduating from Notre Dame as part of the inaugural Management in Training (MIT) program. After only a few short months in the program, Kathy’s skills and abilities were quickly recognized and she was promoted to IT manager of research and development. Kathy has continued to excel at Safeguard with promotions to client account manager in 2007, director of client account management in 2009, and assistant vice president of client account management in 2011.
Building on Kathy’s 13 years of experience, her strong client relationships and her expertise in the REO market, day-to-day Kathy focuses on developing new business opportunities within Safeguard’s existing client base and has taken a more active role in the client onboarding process and contract formation. In this role, Kathy maintains her critical involvement in operations.
