Boulder-based not-for-profit financial institution brings industry veterans on board

Recognized as one of the leading credit union residential mortgage lenders in the state, Boulder-based Elevations Credit Union announced the addition of three industry veterans to its growing mortgage department.

"Closing 2016 as the top credit union residential mortgage lender in Colorado, we're incredibly excited to bring three more top notch mortgage loan officers to our team," said Elizabeth Million, Elevations vice president of mortgage lending.

Susie Kiesling, mortgage loan officer joins the team after 35 years of working in the industry, most recently at Premier Mortgage Group as a senior loan officer. In her new position, she will be based at Elevations' new Larimer County mortgage loan office in Windsor.

Mark Sööt joins Elevations as a mortgage loan officer, bringing with him more than 20 years of mortgage lending experience in the Boulder area. Sööt, who has lived in Boulder since 1981, earned his bachelor's degree in marketing and master's of business administration in finance from the University of Colorado. He will begin at the credit union's Diagonal Highway branch, but will eventually be based at the newly announced Boulder branch, located at 13th and Walnut streets. 

Ed Hermsen also comes to Elevations as a mortgage loan officer, with 14 years of experience, previously at 1st City Mortgage. Hermsen will join Kiesling.

"Sööt, Kiesling and Hermsen all bring extensive knowledge of the Front Range market and will provide the very best service possible to the communities we serve."
