Stephen Romano
Executive Vice President

As Executive Vice President of Retail Lending at BBMC Mortgage, I am directly responsible for all loan production, office oversight, LPO financials, sales processes, growth initiatives and overall organizational development as an executive committee member.

Prior to joining BBMC Mortgage, I was acting as an independent financial consultant for many industry players across the country. Before I was a financial consultant, I was the National Sales Director for Guaranteed Rate. There, I was responsible for managing a private residential mortgage lender with $7 billion in annual originations, consisting of 75 national branches, 550+ loan originators and 1,600 employees companywide. Prior to leading the Retail Division, I was instrumental in constructing and expanding their nation-wide Consumer Direct business to one of the largest platforms in the industry. I began my mortgage career with Household Financial/HSBC, where I was a top loan officer and branch manager.

I have over 14 years experience in the mortgage industry. I bring my unique ability to motivate, problem solve, retain and build a true team atmosphere through my ongoing relationships in the industry on a national level. I earned a BSBA from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY, receiving honors through my participation and leadership with the varsity lacrosse program. I reside with my family in Florida where I am very active in the community.
