Written by Publishing Team

In a statement, Rocket Companies said Varner, in his new role, will “lead the vision for the company’s technology, data, product design, marketing, communications, and other services — ensuring a consistent and seamless customer experience across the rocket companies ecosystem.”

With Farner moving to Rocket Central, the holding company confirmed that Bob Walters had been promoted to CEO of Rocket Mortgage. He previously served as President and Chief Operating Officer of both the Rocket and Rocket Mortgage companies and will retain his position with the Rocket Companies.

In his time as President and COO of Rocket Mortgage, Walters oversaw the mortgage services, customer experience operations, capital markets and technology teams. In his new role as CEO, Walters will be responsible for the vision, strategy, and day-to-day operation of Rocket Mortgage.

Rocket Mortgage also announced that Tim Berkmer, the company’s chief revenue officer, will take over as president. Berkmer, who joined the company in 1996, is responsible for all of the company’s high-revenue teams and initiatives – including mortgage banking and the company’s partnership channel.

“Rocket Mortgage is in excellent hands with Bob and Tim, who have been key drivers in the company’s growth,” Varner said. “We have worked together for decades and will continue to do so.”
