He is based in Roseville, Calif. and reports to Theresa Cherry, senior vice president, partner and manager of Guild’s California/Hawaii region.
“Although he built a successful career as a top producer, Michael has found his true passion in mentoring others and growing high performing teams,” Cherry said. “In leading our sales organization in Northern California, he will enable our teams to work with greater autonomy, close more loans and help get more people into homes. Michael is a strong, dynamic leader and we’re very pleased to welcome him back to Guild.”
Ferreira was most recently with Movement Mortgage, where he was regional sales director for Northern California for the last three years. He was a branch manager at Wells Fargo for four years before accepting the previous position with Guild in 2013. He has also held producing branch manager positions at Paramount Equity, Countrywide and Washington Mutual during his 25-year career in mortgage banking.
As district manager for Guild, Ferreira managed more than 100 employees, 10 managers and offices in Chico, Elk Grove, Eureka, Folsom, Fresno, Grass Valley, Modesto, Natomas, Redding, Roseville, Sacramento, South Lake Tahoe, Turlock and Visalia.
“Guild’s history of serving customers in California dates back to the company’s earliest days as a single office in San Diego,” Ferreira said. “While the state’s diverse population and expansive economy have changed drastically over the past 60 years, Guild has remained a model of strength and stability. The company is committed to leading the industry forward, developing lasting relationships and providing personalized mortgage options for its customers. I’m proud to be back at Guild and look forward to helping strengthen our position in Northern California.”
