has announced the appointment of Valerie Saunders
as the organization’s new Executive Director.
She will be responsible for directing the day-to-day operations that support the organization’s goals to increase its footprint among its target member base of mortgage brokers, mortgage bankers and mortgage businesses. Her role will involve collaborating with NAMB’s Board to develop strategies, and developing and implementing processes that bring those strategies to fruition.
“NAMB has experienced a great resurgence over the past several years, and our goal is to build upon that momentum and continue to grow our member base,” said Saunders. “A lot of originators and mortgage businesses don’t realize how much NAMB membership can protect their interests and increase opportunities for them. We have aggressive goals for educating our target members and growing the number of people who benefit from NAMB’s offerings.”
Saunders previously served as Vice President of NAMB and has been with the organization, both as a member and as a board member, for more than 15 years. In addition to her role as NAMB’s Executive Director, Saunders is Vice President of Florida-based mortgage brokerage RE Financial Services Inc.
“Valerie has a proven track record of creating programs that benefit members and homeowners, as well as NAMB,” said Fred Kreger, President of NAMB. “We’re looking forward to further leveraging her knowledge, creativity and vision in growing our member base and NAMB’s influence in the coming year.”
