Franklin First Financial Ltd. has announced the launch of a new Wholesale Lending Division to meet the needs of mortgage brokers in the 39 states they are currently licensed. The launch of the Wholesale Division is something Franklin First Financial Ltd.’s president and owner Frederick Assini is very excited about.

“I’ve heard many horror stories from brokers about substandard service from many wholesale lenders and knew Franklin First’s infrastructure would fill the void in great service with the right leadership, which I’m happy to say that I’ve found in Ken Turner and Andrew Russell,” said Assini.

Ken Turner, VP of Wholesale Lending, is equally enthused about the launch. Turner has a 25-year track record of success in running wholesale mortgage companies, including eight years as president of Wholesale Lending at Allied Mortgage Group, and 10 years as branch president at Decision One/HSBC. Turner has a strong emphasis on customer service and building relationships with the mortgage broker community. He has always been avid supporter of the mortgage broker industry. Ken has been a Gold Sponsor of the NYAMB—The New York Association of Mortgage Professionals for three years, and was a board member of the Pennsylvania Association of Mortgage Brokers (PAMB) for many years. Ken is presently chairman of the Pennsylvania Mortgage Bankers Association (PMBA) as well as a Board Member of the MBA of Greater Philadelphia Chapter for five years.

“The decision to come to Franklin First Financial Ltd. to launch their Wholesale Lending division is one that I’m very excited about,” said Russell, vice president of operations of the Wholesale Division at Franklin First Financial. “Franklin First Financial has the tools and resources that will ensure success of our Account Executives and the brokers they serve.”
