Kinecta Federal Credit Union has signed Chris Knox as the new northeast regional manager for its wholesale/correspondent mortgage lending operation. Chris will oversee the activities of account executives as part of Kinecta’s expansion into several northeast states from Maine to as far south as North Carolina. “Chris has an impressive track record of success as a sales manager with major lenders,” said Todd Helmerson, director of wholesale loan production for Kinecta Federal Credit Union. “We look forward to having him build up our wholesale presence in the northeast.”
Before joining Kinecta, Chris was VP/national sales manager for Fifth Third Bancorp where he designed and launched complete wholesale and correspondent channels. Prior positions include vice president/regional sales manager for Wells Fargo Bank, directing a wholesale operation over a 14-state region, and vice president/channel manager for Integra Mortgage Company.
“It’s always exciting to be part of building a new sales region," said Knox. "Kinecta has an experienced senior management team and I know we’ll have great success with this new northeast expansion.”
