Guild Mortgage Co. recently opened its 10th office in San Diego County, in Mission Valley.

The lender, which started here in 1960, now has about 175 branch and satellite offices in 17 states. Eight are in the city of San Diego, while it has one each in Chula Vista and Escondido.

Last year, Guild said it did $6 billion in new loans, had servicing volume of $10 billion, and ranked No. 38 nationally in originations.

Leading the new office is Paul Johnson, who was most recently at Veteran’s United.
