HomeBridge Financial Services has announced that Fannie Mae veteran Alex Saphos has joined the company in the newly created position of investor relations advisor. In his new role, Saphos will leverage HomeBridge’s existing industry relationships and create new opportunities to connect HomeBridge’s origination abilities with the needs of outside portfolio investors across the country. Prior to joining HomeBridge, Saphos was with Fannie Mae for nearly 30 years.
Saphos’ career in mortgage finance spans more than 40 years and includes firsthand involvement in a wide range of areas, including origination, underwriting, wholesale, correspondent channel operations and secondary marketing. While with Fannie Mae, Saphos was the primary point of contact between the company and its key customers in the Northeast region for all matters involving sales and delivery.
“HomeBridge truly is one of the best independent national mortgage lenders in the industry today," said Saphos. "Its thriving retail presence and two distinct wholesale divisions offer portfolio buyers a mix of geographic diversity and targeting options that few lenders can match. As a company, HomeBridge’s overall reputation for excellence in mortgage lending is known nationwide, which only makes it more attractive to the banks and credit unions I’ll be working with."
Saphos received numerous accolades during the course of his career with Fannie Mae for both his attention to customer service and leadership, and has served as a member of the New Jersey MBA Board of Governors since 2011. Based HomeBridge’s Iselin, N.J. office, he will report to HomeBridge Capital Markets Senior Vice President Christopher Randall.
“The new investor relations position Alex is stepping into is about much more than just creating opportunities for HomeBridge, it centers on building and strengthening relationships between HomeBridge and the greater financial community," said Randall. "For the last 40 years, Alex has demonstrated that he not only has an exceptional understanding of our industry and its network, but also the dedication to excellence which we strive for in every aspect of our business."
