Schmidt Mortgage Company has announced the addition of John Kulka as manager of new business development. A 25-year mortgage industry veteran, Kulka brings considerable experience in cross-selling mortgage products across related industries, affinity marketing and retail mortgage lending.

“Ohio has seen a steady increase in mortgage volume, and with John’s ability to create additional business opportunities via cross-selling to the relocation and moving industries, we anticipate that Schmidt will be able to capitalize on increased market interest for mortgage products,” said Schmidt Mortgage Executive Vice President Jeffrey Steed.

Prior to joining Schmidt, Kulka served as business development manager for Ohio-based mortgage lender, SIRVA Mortgage, where he helped increase yearly volume from $250 million to more than $1 billion over his 14-year tenure.

“As a lifelong northeast Ohio resident, I’ve known of Schmidt Mortgage Company’s reputation for years. I was eager to join an organization where the entire staff is dedicated to serving both our retail customers and our wholesale lending partners,” Kulka said. “As the industry continues to change, I feel Schmidt Mortgage is well positioned to grow from both a retail and wholesale standpoint, and I look forward to the challenge of building on our already solid reputation and performance.”
