New American Funding Taps Chris MacNaughton to Lead Northern California Expansion
Nov 02, 2016
New American Funding has expanded in the Midwest region with its latest branch in Naperville, Ill.

New American Funding has announced that it has added Chris MacNaughton to lead the company’s expansion in Northern California as vice president of Builder and Business Development. MacNaughton will be responsible for developing the Builder Division and creating a builder certification training program that endorses loan officers as new home specialists.

MacNaughton has more than 15 years of mortgage experience originating loans, conducting new home financing, and managing branches for various lenders. At times in his career, he has ranked number one in volume-producing loan originator within his company. Most recently, MacNaughton worked at a private mortgage lender in a dual role as branch manager and regional builder manager, where his branch at one point hit number one in loan volume for the company nationwide.

In this new position, MacNaughton’s goal is to use that expertise to create the best platform for loan originators, improve marketing and branding with referral partners, and lead the mortgage industry in customer satisfaction.

“Today, most mortgage companies want to be the biggest, but I have seen very few that want to be the best,” said MacNaughton. “Every time I sit with Rick and Patty Arvielo, I feel their drive to improve all facets of New American Funding. I’m proud to be in alignment with that vision and excited to build a ‘NEW’ New American Funding in Northern California!”

MacNaughton will work to expand the company’s brand in the Bay Area with the intention of establishing the mortgage lender as a powerhouse in that market.

“We’re thrilled to have Chris as part of the team,” said Sam Ellsworth, SVP of National Retail Sales. “We’re confident his passion, expertise, and drive to be the best will be tremendous assets to our continued growth.”
