Marissa Moore is passionate about taking on new challenges. An inventive thinker, she is constantly challenging herself to come up with new and interesting ways to approach projects that bring fresh solutions to her team. A dedicated #TeamloanDepot associate, Marissa joined the company shortly after its inception, and looks forward to the amazing growth ahead.

“My experience with Anthony and his previous two companies – in addition to his commitment to ethics and integrity – were all I needed to know when I was considering the opportunity to join loanDepot,” she said. “I have always respected how he does business and I knew he’d make this new venture an incredible success.”

And she was right. In these past five years, Marissa has seen the company grow from a handful of dedicated professionals to more than 4,500 strong today, with plans to hire another 1,000 people in the coming year.

“What I love is that we’ve never lost our commitment to our mission or the family atmosphere from when we first started,” she said. 

Her role at loanDepot has been equally as exciting and dynamic as the company’s growth. She started as sales manager, where she led a team for two years. Marissa continued to rise through the ranks, with promotions and expanded responsibilities given to her in May 2013, March 2014, and, most recently, on Sept. 4 when she was named VP, Next Generation Lending.

 “Marissa is an extremely passionate, production-minded individual who is process and tech savvy, a perfect combination to help us fuel the next chapter of our next generation lending products,” said CEO and Founder Anthony Hsieh.

Marissa looks at every challenge as an opportunity. Prior to the announcement of her most recent promotion, she served a liaison between tech and production, overseeing the entire launch process of new products, from inception to implementation. She said that finding new and creative ways to develop and premiere these innovative products is very rewarding.

“One thing I’d love people to know if they’re considering coming to loanDepot is to walk the sales floor or visit a production environment as soon as you can after starting,” she said. “You will feel the energy and the positivity that radiates from the team. Everyone works hard but there is a family atmosphere that is very special.”

Marissa finds the excitement that exists day-to-day at loanDepot only helps elevate everyone’s game across almost every department.

“The support we receive at loanDepot at all levels is second to none,” she said. “As long as you remain coachable and take advantage of the training, mentorship and leadership development offered to you here, your success will be inevitable.”
