Scott Sanderson
President
Scott graduated with a business degree from the University of Texas. He's a veteran of the mortgage industry with a career spanning over 20 years, beginning as a Loan Officer in 1984 to his present capacity as President and CEO of Central Texas Mortgage Corporation, a Mortgage Banking and Brokerage company, and Managing Partner of MBSQuoteline. His passion for the markets began early in his career and was fueled by the lack of good, affordable MBS market information available to industry professionals. To that end, in 1992 he founded Quoteline, a Mortgage Backed Security market pricing and information service, the seed for today's MBSQuoteline. As the first MBS service tailored specifically to the origination community, over the years Quoteline helped thousands of clients, Loan Officers, Brokers and pipeline managers follow the markets and make better, more profitable decisions in their businesses, while learning what makes the market tick. MBSQuoteline represents the continued evolution of Quoteline, and in 2005 enters its 14th year of providing essential MBS news, information and pricing to the industry.
