New American Funding Appoints Zeeda Daniele to Head Up Community Lending DivisionNew American Funding has appointed Zeeda Daniele to oversee its Community Lending Division, serving as Community Lending and Strategic Partnerships National Manager. In this role, she will establish nationwide partnerships with non-profits and community banks in order to provide affordable loan programs and homebuyer education to housing consumers.
“I’m thrilled about this new opportunity,” said Daniele. “I’ve always had a love for non-profits and I’m passionate about continuing that work with New American Funding.”
Daniele is a 30-year veteran of the mortgage industry, who spent the past 17 years at Fannie Mae; most recently as a Senior Deputy Director, managing non-profit relationships and developing strategic plans with Fannie’s lending partners.
Initially, Daniele will launch New American Funding’s community lending program with select non-profits in California, Washington and Arizona, but will expand it to every state where the mortgage lender is licensed. The goal is to help first-time homebuyers become sustainable homeowners and to provide borrowers with options to refinance their home.
“This is an ideal union so we’re extremely excited to have Zeeda as part of New American Funding’s management team,” said Chief Operating Officer Christy Bunce. “Her industry knowledge and extensive background working with non-profits will help us shape our Community Lending Division and is in direct alignment with our vision to expand to new levels.”
