CHICAGO, Dec. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan Ogata will take on the role of Divisional Manager overseeing Guaranteed Rate's Northwest market, including Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Northern California. Tim Sorenson becomes Divisional Manager of the company's Southwest market, including Hawaii, Utah, Nevada and Southern California.

Ogata, who joined Guaranteed Rate in 2017 and served as a regional manager, steps into his new role with more than 20 years of mortgage industry experience. Under his leadership, Guaranteed Rate's loan volume in Northern California increased more than 600% over the last four years.

"Guaranteed Rate offers best-in-class technology, service and sales leadership, which allows our teams to expand their presence in our markets and better serve homebuyers throughout the entire mortgage process," said Ogata. "I'm excited to continue recruiting and developing top talent in sales and operations."

Sorenson, an industry veteran of more than 21 years, also joined the company in 2017, developing and leading top-performing teams as a regional manager.

"I'm most passionate about working with Guaranteed Rate to help my employees scale their business, reach their full potential and accomplish goals they never thought were possible," said Sorenson. "I strive to help create industry leaders who will continue propelling the company to even greater heights."
