Supreme Lending has announced the opening of two new branches in Louisiana, one in Baton Rouge, the other in Shreveport. Industry veteran William Walker, who has more than 20 years of experience in mortgage lending, joined the company as branch manager of the new Baton Rouge branch and supervisor of the Shreveport branch. Walker has appointed Tammy McKee, who has 15-plus years of mortgage industry experience, as branch manager of the Shreveport office. He has also retained over 20 other experienced mortgage professionals who worked with him prior to Supreme Lending, to originate and process mortgages.
“Tammy understands that being a great originator requires knowing your products and the components that can make or break a loan,” said Walker. “She is a terrific branch manager and, like our entire team in Louisiana, is dedicated to helping qualified borrowers get the mortgages they deserve.”
Throughout the past 20 years, Walker and his team have developed a very strong presence and following among real estate agents, builders and homeowners in the greater Baton Rouge and Shreveport metropolitan areas.
Prior to joining Supreme Lending, Walker held several management and executive positions with Resource One Mortgage. Throughout the course of his career, he has worked with other lenders such as Nationwide Home Lending and Allied Mortgage Group; directed and overseen branches with annual production up to $400 million; and managed up to 55 origination and processing staff members. Prior to his career in the mortgage industry, he was a licensed real estate agent for 11 years. McKee was previously branch manager with North American Lending in Shreveport.
“Supreme Lending’s technology enables us to stay compliant and complete tasks more efficiently, which in turn enhances the service we provide to our customers,” said Walker. “Supreme is known to a technology-focused lender, not only among the lending community, but also among borrowers, real estate agents and other professionals we work with.”
