IMARC Promotes David Kittle and Kate Simpson

Kittle becomes EVP of Quality Control division and Kate Simpson becomes director of client services

Santa Ana, Calif. — October 18, 2012
IMARC, a national leader in mortgage quality assurance and loan data verification, announced the promotion of David Kittle, CMB, to executive vice president of the Quality Control division at IMARC.  Kittle will retain his title of senior director of industry relations. Kate Simpson was promoted to director of client services from her prior position as manager.

Kittle, former chairman of the Mortgage Bankers Association in 2009, joined IMARC in 2010 as senior director of industry relations. He served for six years on MBA’s board of directors and was CEO of Associates Mortgage Group from 1994 to 2006.

Kittle will be dedicating his attention to IMARC’s QC proprietary software, which assists mortgage lenders by auditing application data and complying with current and upcoming regulations and guidelines.

“With the risks of loan repurchases and buybacks from investors on even the smallest errors, lenders need reassurance that those mortgage applications are free and clear of any mistakes before settlement,” Kittle said. “IMARC clients favor working with our proprietary system because it performs a thorough analysis and verifies different data points in each mortgage application before a loan goes to the closing table.”

In her new position, Kate Simpson will be reporting to Kittle. She will be working with the operations and information technology teams to ensure current and future clients take full advantage of IMARC’s proprietary QC software. Her role will include the demonstration of IMARC’s Quality Control, Compliance and Loan Processing Assistance products to IMARC clients and partners throughout the mortgage space.

Since Simpson joined IMARC in 2007, her responsibilities have included every aspect of the analysis of delinquent loans and forensic file reviews, including report writer, analyst and researcher.

“Kate’s strong IT skills and exceptional abilities to analyze and improve workflow are a reflection of the years of service she has put into IMARC, and now she is able to communicate the reasons behind the efficiencies of these products for current and future clients,” Kittle said.
