Deep in the field of Home Lending Talent

With a reputation for successful searches and placements, we have established ourselves as experienced industry leaders across a range of production and leadership roles.

The Crossings Group

Connecting proven leaders with select organizations

Since 2002, The Crossings Group Inc. has been working with home lending talent, creating opportunities for proven home lending leaders to cross paths with a select list of depositories and mortgage companies. What started as a firm focused on helping home builders with their retail mortgage divisions quickly grew to include other non-depository mortgage companies. Today we serve an equal balance of bank and non-depository mortgage bankers, while finding solutions to their home lending recruiting needs. Our concentration is a mix of executive leadership, production and merger and acquisition work.

Joe Lickteig and team have made a significant impact on the organizations I’ve worked in because of their candidate transparency, deep industry expertise and systematic search process. I look forward to the continued partnership

Joe Lickteig provided outstanding service for us in finding a really good Chief Lending Officer for our organization. I would highly recommend the Crossing Group in your search for Loan Department executive.

President, Central Federal Savings and Loan

Joe & his team did a great job helping us recruit to grow our branch network. He’s a solid, trustworthy guy who busted his butt to deliver strong results for us.

Brock B.

Co-owner, Veterans United Home Loans

Joe Lickteig is so good at what he does that it is almost unfair to label him as a recruiter. I have talked to him over the years as both a potential recruit and an employer, and found him to be the most informative, inquisitive and consultative talent acquisition guy out there. Joe is an effective and consistent communicator, and can help either side of the recruiting scenario analyze options and make great decisions.

Ken Niemann

President, Mortgage / Paramount Bank

Joe, Jim and The Crossings Group were an integral part in helping the branch network get started and grow. We all consider them just another member of our Veterans United family. If you are looking for a trustworthy partner to help in recruiting, you can’t go wrong with The Crossings Group. They have represented Veterans United very well.

Joe Licktieg is a well versed mortgage professional. He is exceptionally diverse, knowledgeable, trustworthy and is a well-connected industry coach, confidante and recruiting professional. It is without reservation, Joe earns my recommendation!

Paul Diamond

Owner and CEO, Diamond Residential Mortgage Corp

Joe with The Crossings Group was great to work with. Helping us with what we were trying to find was a tall order and Joe delivered. He stuck with it and found us some fantastic candidates that we went on to hire. Not only did he find what we were looking for, it was also just a pleasure working with him. He is a great guy and we enjoyed the relationship both personally and professionally.

I have found Joe’s Data base, industry knowledge and professionalism to be invaluable over the past 10 plus years.

Jeff Gennarelli

CEO, BBMC Mortgage

Joe came highly recommended and after conducting several phone interviews of other executive search firms it was clear that The Crossings Group was our first choice. Joe spent time with me and key members of our management team to understand our need and our “story.” Joe clearly communicated during each step, provided multiple candidates for consideration, coordinated the interview process and then provided invaluable insight during the final stage of offer/negotiation. I felt a connection with him and that he truly understood our situation. I would not hesitate to call Joe again or recommend him to another bank.
