EquityKey has announced the appointment of John Robbins, former Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) chairman and founder of the American Residential Mortgage Corporation, to its advisory board. Robbins has more than 40 years of experience in the mortgage banking industry, including six terms on the MBA’s board of directors. He founded American Residential Mortgage Corporation, overseeing its development into one of the largest independent mortgage banks in the U.S. and its acquisition by Chase Bank, and also founded American Residential Investment Trust Inc. and American Mortgage Network. Robbins has served two terms on Fannie Mae’s National Housing Advisory Council, and was Chairman of the Policy Advisory Board for the University of San Diego’s Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate for more than 16 years.

“EquityKey has created the first truly new product in home finance in decades—and they’ve done it with consumers’ best interest in mind,” said Robbins. “I’m pleased to join EquityKey’s advisory board to help guide the company as it scales to fully address the $22 trillion home equity market.”

Robbins joins Susan Wachter, professor of real estate and finance at The Wharton School, Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, director of the Center for Real Estate Finance Research, Jo Ann Barefoot, CEO of Jo Ann Barefoot Group, and James Car, senior fellow with the Center for American Progress, on EquityKey’s advisory board.

“We’re honored to welcome John to our advisory board,” said EquityKey co-founder and managing director Jeffery Nash. “John’s deep experience in mortgage and debt financing, and long track record of advocating for consumers makes him an incredibly valuable addition to our team as we move into the future.”
