Academy Mortgage is celebrating 30 years of service

Leif Boyd and Patrick Welberg have joined Academy Mortgage as regional managers to oversee Academy’s sales, recruiting, personnel management, market expansion and business development along the West Coast.
Boyd (pictured right) will serve as regional manager for California and Nevada. He came to Academy from American Pacific Mortgage (APM), where he established himself as a top originator, leading branch manager and head of production. Under Boyd’s leadership and guidance, APM experienced tremendous growth. Prior to APM, Boyd worked in both retail and wholesale lending at HSBC, National City and Merrill Lynch.
Welberg (pictured left) will serve as regional manager over the company’s newly created Pacific Northwest Region. Before moving to Academy, he was employed at Guild Mortgage, where he was a branch manager and district manager. Guild had no presence in Oregon when Welberg joined the company in 2011, but under his leadership, his branch produced more than $705 million in total loan volume in 2015 alone. His mortgage experience also includes director of the Mortgage Sales Department at OnPoint Community Credit Union and regional manager and branch manager at Bank of America.
“Leif and Patrick bring nearly four decades of combined mortgage leadership experience to our company,” said Academy Mortgage’s Executive Vice President of Production Aaron Nemec. “They are both widely recognized and respected for their experience and expertise in our industry and in their respective markets. We are thrilled and humbled to have leaders of their caliber join Academy.”
