Stephen Marrs and Chris Terry have joined Academy Mortgage as branch managers, overseeing all loan origination and employee development in the company’s Greater Detroit Area Branch.
“We are incredibly pleased to have these two phenomenal men on our Academy team,” said Academy Mortgage District Manager Shawn Sirko. “They are a dynamic duo and have invaluable experience. We can’t wait to see how they grow their branch.”
Marrs (pictured left) began his mortgage career as a senior underwriter at ABN AMRO-Interfirst (now Citi), then advanced to managing an underwriting team at Washtenaw Mortgage Company. He worked as an independent loan officer for seven years before joining Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group, where he advanced from senior loan officer to branch manager. Marrs received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Eastern Michigan University and his master of business administration from Wayne State University.
Terry (pictured right) entered the mortgage business as a loan officer for I.T. Mortgage. After successive promotions, Terry quickly became president of I.T. Mortgage, which later became Source Mortgage. Under Terry’s direction, Source experienced significant growth. When the lending landscape changed in early 2008, Terry joined Gold Star Mortgage Financial Group, where he eventually became a highly successful branch manager. Terry also attended Eastern Michigan University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in business administration.
