American Financial Network (AFN) of Chino Hills, Calif. has appointed Brian Pool as wholesale vice president and Susan Belese as regional production manager, Wholesale Lending Division, of the Northeast Region including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Both Pool and Belese have extensive experience in this region of the country. They will be directly responsible for the development of production and new relationships for the wholesale division in the region.
“The combination of an aggressive pricing platform and AFN’s dedication toward customer service is a great fit for the business model of most of our potential clients. The Northeast Region is a competitive market, so we know that we have to be willing to go to great lengths to earn the business. That’s something we’re looking forward to proving out to the marketplace,” said Pool.
“Our presence in the Northeast Region is critical to our overall growth strategy and vision of creating a national footprint for not only the TPO channel but also for all distribution channels,” said Executive Vice President Ramaj Balley. “While many firms have exited the TPO Channel, we remain dedicated to the viability and the sustainability of the broker community.”
