imortgage, a division of loanDepot LLC, has announced the promotion of Dan Peña to senior vice president of national joint ventures. In this newly created executive role, Peña will be responsible for providing leadership, guidance and operations oversight for imortgage's fast-growing joint venture partnerships that have funded nearly $1 billion in home loans to date in 2015.
A 20-year lending industry veteran, Peña was formerly vice president of operations at imortgage, where he managed the daily loan processing function for imortgage in the division's centralized and branch locations.
"Dan's deep knowledge and experience in mortgage lending, coupled with his 15-year tenure at imortgage where he excelled in a variety of roles, uniquely qualifies him to deliver our service-driven and customer-focused culture to our joint venture business partners," said Dean Bloxom, president of imortgage. "We're very fortunate to have Dan as part of our senior leadership team. He has played a pivotal role in our organization's growth for many years, helping make our joint venture business one of the finest in the nation. I'm confident his success will carry over into his new, broader role for the organization."
"I'm extremely proud to champion imortgage's unrivaled customer experience to our homebuilder and real estate broker partners," Peña said. "Today, imortgage has a stellar reputation for highly successful working relationships with some of the nation's largest builders. My passion has always been matching individual home buyers with specific loan services that meet their unique needs."
Peña joined imortgage in September 2000. During his 15 years, he gained experience in originations, fulfillment and operations. Peña built his career on providing clear direction and overseeing departmental management that continually maintained low turn times and on-time closings.
