The 40-year old firm was handling about 60,000 mortgage foreclosure cases across the US. Bob Hosch, the CEO, told employees that he was stepping down voluntarily. Mr Hosch blamed over-expansion for the practice's problems. He wrote in his email to them: 'Unfortunately, BH grew too fast and could not merge processes from the acquired entities quickly enough to meet our economic forecasts, which resulted in short-term cash crunches and [affected] our ability to attract new capital in the interim.'
