Industry veteran Dale Kurland, a former managing director at Bear Stearns, has formed a new advisory firm, hoping to tap what could be a hot merger market for mortgage companies in the next few years."We anticipate a robust market for mergers, acquisitions, and overall consolidation in the mortgage business for the foreseeable future," said Ms. Kurland, who will serve as chief executive of her new firm, Classic Strategies Group LLC. The new company is based in New York. Prior to launching CSG, Ms. Kurland was a principal in DK Advisory Services. DKAS advised on several franchise-related deals, including the sale of First Town Mortgage, James Madison Mortgage, Knutson Mortgage, and others. In the early 1990s, Ms. Kurland was the head of mortgage banking M&A for Bear Stearns. CSG can be found online at http://www.classicsg.com.
