U.S. Bank has named Tom Wind president of U.S. Bank Home Mortgage. He succeeds Rick Aneshansel, who announced his retirement earlier this year after a long and successful career. Wind officially begins in his new role on Jan. 4, 2016.
Wind is a mortgage industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience at a number of different lenders. He was most recently executive vice president of residential and consumer lending, at EverBank Financial Corporation in Jacksonville, Fla. Throughout his career, he has held executive positions with several lenders, including Lehman Brothers/Aurora Loan Services, JP Morgan Chase and Citicorp Mortgage.
“Connecting families with the financing and ability to own a home is an important part of our mission as a relationship bank,” said Kent Stone, vice chairman and head of U.S. Bank Consumer Banking Sales and Support. “In addition to being an industry veteran, Tom is a triple threat—he understands multiple pieces of the mortgage business including origination, servicing and capital markets. That combination of expertise is a rarity and very important for our business.”
Wind earned a master’s of business administration degree and a bachelor’s of science degree in accounting from St. Louis University. He is a member of the Residential Board of Governors and a board member of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Wind is also a former Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
“U.S. Bank has a really strong mortgage business and reputation in the industry,” Wind said. “I’m excited to work with this talented and experienced team of mortgage lenders. We have a real growth opportunity in our retail business and I look forward to helping lead the growth of this business.”
