Online PR News – 31-July-2015 – Guardian Mortgage Company, Inc. (Guardian Mortgage), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Strategic Growth Bancorp Incorporated, announced that Marcia F. Phillips, its President and Chief Executive Officer since 1988, has retired from those positions and will become Vice Chairman of the Companys Board of Directors.
William D. Sanders, Chairman of the Guardian Mortgage Board of Directors, said Marcie Phillips, along with Cari McCue, the Companys Chief Operating Officer, and Marcus McCue, Executive Vice President of Business Development, have been instrumental in developing one of the strongest corporate cultures in the rapidly changing mortgage origination and servicing industry. Every Guardian Mortgage colleague knows that providing service to the Companys clients before, during and after the mortgage origination process is their most important responsibility.

Mr. Anderson will use his expertise as a leader in an evolving organization to guide Guardian Mortgage as it executes a strategic plan to make the Companys business model national while adapting to the evolving regulatory and compliance environment.
I have been honored to be part of Guardian Mortgage for more than 39 years said Mrs. Phillips. We have built a company that has integrity at the center of everything we do, and I am confident that Russ, Cari, and Marcus will continue that philosophy. As Vice Chairman, I look forward to watching the Company intelligently grow into a national enterprise and offering my thoughts, advice, and guidance as needed.
Mr. Anderson said, In a short time, I have developed a genuine respect for the entire Guardian Mortgage team, for Marcie Phillips, and the Companys strong business culture. Guardian Mortgage celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year; I am excited to have the opportunity to lead Guardian Mortgage into its second half century.
