The Kislak Organization has announced the appointment of Thomas L. Wind as managing director of of J.I. Kislak Mortgage LLC (Kislak Mortgage), the organization’s residential mortgage lending division. Wind will be based in Denver, Colo. With more than 20 years of residential mortgage banking experience, Wind comes to Kislak with one of the most successful mortgage banking careers in the industry, formerly serving as chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase’s residential mortgage lending businesses. Previously, Wind served as president and chief operating officer of CitiMortgage, Citi’s residential mortgage business. At Kislak Mortgage, Wind will not only help determine strategy, but will assume a leading role in the implementation of growth plans for Kislak Mortgage’s new products and services throughout the country. “No individual has more relevant, important or impactful credentials in the residential mortgage industry than Tom Wind," said Thomas Meyer, Kislak Mortgage’s chief executive officer. "Over the past two decades, Tom has held leadership positions at some of the largest and most important mortgage banking institutions in the world. His experience will add rocket fuel to Kislak Mortgage’s residential mortgage operations, allowing us to expand into new markets and provide the most innovative products and services to our customers.” Most recently, Wind was chief executive officer of Aurora Loan Services, the Denver-based mortgage banking division of Lehman Brothers. While he was with Aurora, Wind played a pivotal role in stabilizing and repositioning Aurora Bank (f/k/a, Lehman Brothers Bank) and Aurora Loan Services. “I am confident that Kislak Mortgage has reentered the residential mortgage industry at the right time. The market is in dire need of a lender who understands that cookie cutter and quality are not synonymous. Sadly, the lending process has become too focused on ‘one size fits all,’ shrinking the market dramatically. Kislak Mortgage is dedicated to developing a team of experienced mortgage professionals with the support to provide credit worthy consumers with access to capital and the right product to fit their needs,” said Wind. “I believe wholeheartedly that Kislak Mortgage is positioned to rapidly gain traction in its home state of Florida, and to seize the opportunity to become a significant mortgage banking platform across the entire country.” For more information, visit www.kislak.com.
