Amrock Names New CEO

November 16, 2021

Amrock announced a new chief executive officer to replace the retiring Brian Hughes.

Nicole Beattie, who currently serves as executive vice president of mortgage servicing for Amrock sister company Rocket Mortgage, will assume the role of Amrock CEO beginning Nov. 19.

"I would like to congratulate Brian on Amrock's success, Beattie said. “His leadership has solidified the company's position at the top of the industry and paved a clear path of innovation for years to come. I'm excited to build on the company's momentum, continuing to create technology solutions that improve the mortgage closing experience for our lender partners and the clients they serve."

Beattie will step into the CEO role after nearly 18 years with Rocket Companies, the last four of which have been spent leading Rocket Mortgage's servicing team.

Her leadership has been instrumental in helping Rocket Mortgage clients navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, as the company took an extremely proactive approach toward helping those impacted. As the pandemic began to affect homeowners, Beattie's mortgage servicing team released a proprietary technology system to quickly assist them.

In addition to Beattie's work improving homeowners' experience, she has tremendously impacted those on her team. She lives by her servicing team's motto of "love your team members and love your clients" by leading with empathy and passion for the company's award-winning culture.

Beattie's experience and achievements in the housing industry will have a direct, positive impact on Amrock clients as she applies these elements to advance the company's team member experience, business strategy and digital transformation agenda.

Hughes is retiring after more than 21 years at Amrock, with a total of 30 years devoted to the title, appraisal and settlement services industry. Throughout his time with Amrock, he has been instrumental in enacting change and spearheading company growth through a variety of leadership positions. He led Amrock's integration of digital mortgage closings and advocated for adoption throughout the country. During the third quarter, Amrock reached the milestone of completing the company's one millionth e-closing.

"In my time at Amrock, I've had the honor of challenging the housing industry's status quo and positively impacting client experience, making the home buying journey easier to navigate," said Hughes. "I know the company is in good hands with Nicole. Her leadership has brought innovation to mortgage servicing that many didn't think possible. I look forward to seeing the strides that will be made in home valuation and mortgage closing under her direction."
