“Mr. Cooper” was chosen as the new brand name for its more personal feel and to enable its customers to feel more at home with their loan providers.
“Launching Mr. Cooper is another important step in our journey to transform the customer experience; and while our journey is still evolving, I’m incredibly proud of our team and the impactful changes we’ve made throughout our company,” said Jay Bray, chairman and CEO of Nationstar. “Rallying around our new identity has helped us to create an entire company dedicated to keeping the dream of homeownership alive for our customers.

experience great are key in our goal of creating customers for life.”
