LenderLive Network Inc. announced that Jim Dunleavy has joined the firm as regional account executive in the midwest region for the company’s correspondent lending division.
In this role, Dunleavy will work with current and prospective clients, primarily community banks and credit unions in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, that are participating in or considering the LenderLive correspondent program. He will report directly to Bob Kallio, senior vice president of Correspondent Lending.
LenderLive’s correspondent program is designed to serve the needs of mid-tier and smaller originators that want to protect their customer relationships. Unlike many large bank programs, LenderLive offers an option to co-brand its servicing with its correspondents. The program also offers fast turn times, quick client approval, competitive pricing and greater engagement during the sales process to keep clients aware of the status of their loans.
Dunleavy brings more than 30 years of mortgage industry experience to LenderLive. Prior to joining the company, he served as director of business development at TruHome Solutions LLC, where he developed additional lending channels for private-label origination clients and developed correspondent lending programs. Previously, Dunleavy was an account executive at Kinecta Federal Credit Union, where he launched its correspondent lending program. He began his career at Flagstar Bank, where he was one of the top producers in his region for nine years.
“Expanding our correspondent division is a top priority for LenderLive,” said Dave Vida, president of LenderLive Correspondent Lending. “With his extensive knowledge in wholesale and correspondent lending, as well as proven sales and program development, Jim will be a valuable addition to our team of account executives and will help us grow our business while providing exceptional service to our customers.”
