Blake Kolo Named Head of Investor Relations at United Wholesale Mortgage
UWM Holding Corp., the indirect parent company of Pontiac-based United Wholesale Mortgage, announced that Blake Kolo has been named head of investor relations in addition to his current role as chief commercial officer.
Kolo will assume investor relations responsibilities, which were previously held by Matt Roslin. Roslin will remain active in all parts of the business but will focus heavily on his role as Executive Vice President of Compliance and Legal Affairs at UWM.
“Blake has a very diverse background and has been involved in many different industries through many cycles,” said Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of UWM. “His seasoned financial experience, insight and relationship-oriented mindset will be a critical part of our continued growth, strategy and financial performance of the business.
“Blake’s sound judgment and deep expertise helped UWM weather one of our most significant growth periods and bring UWM to the public. I look forward to Blake sharing our growth story with all of our partners and investors.
In his new role, Kolo will continue to oversee UWM’s mortgage finance operations and mortgage rights management business, while also working to build and maintain relationships with investors and analysts across the country.
His more than 15 years of experience in the financial sector will enable him to ensure that stakeholders are properly informed of UWM’s business model, financial performance and long-term strategies.
Kolo joined UWM in 2019 as the company’s CBO, where he focuses on managing UWM’s mortgage finance operations, private label securitization shelf and mortgage servicing rights business.
