Introducing Paul Garrigues, Waterstone Mortgage CFO

May 31, 2022

Paul rounds out our executive team as our financial and accounting leader  

We are excited to welcome Paul Garrigues as our new Chief Financial Officer!

Paul has more than 40 years of accounting experience in the financial services, banking, and mortgage industries, including many executive leadership roles.

In his role as our CFO, Paul will serve as our liaison for WaterStone Bank; oversee all corporate accounting functions; and provide financial direction for our many branches nationwide. As a member of the executive team, he will also play a pivotal role in the strategic growth of the organization.

Paul will be based at his home on Amelia Island in Northeast Florida, and will visit our Home Office in Wisconsin occasionally to work with the teams there. Paul has worked as a remote CFO from his Florida home in his last two positions, which included a mortgage banker in Oakbrook, IL and a credit union in Yakima, WA. 

Paul and his wife Danna are avid scuba divers who are particularly drawn to wreck dives, shark dives, and night dives. They are also diehard fans of Jimmy Buffett (Parrotheads) and have flown as far as California to attend his concerts. They share three adult children and a grandson, who are spread out between Colorado and New York.

Paul is a Certified Public Accountant and a member of the American Institute of CPAs. He earned his B.S. in Accounting from the University of Southern California, and completed additional master’s level coursework in International Finance at San Diego State University.

We’re glad Paul found his professional “home” here at Waterstone Mortgage! Are you interested in joining the team? Find out what makes WMC an amazing workplace.
