Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions has bolstered its roster of employees as the firm responds to increasing demand. In the past few months, Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions promoted five current employees, added six new Account Executives and outgrew its recently-opened operations center in Dallas.
Among the Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions leadership team, Tom Hutchens was promoted to the role of Executive Vice President, Production, charged with continuing the expansion of Angel Oak’s Wholesale and Correspondent channels.
Mel Freyre takes over management of the Wholesale Sales Channel as Senior Vice President of Wholesale Sales. In addition, John Jeanmonod, John Wise and Moises Bonet have all been promoted to Regional Sales Managers. Jeanmonod will oversee Florida and Texas, Wise will be responsible for the Northwest region, and Bonet takes over managing the Inside Sales Team.
“The increase in demand has put us in a position where we are struggling to find enough high quality mortgage professionals to keep up,” Hutchens said. “We’ve been saying for years that the non-QM market has incredible upside. Now lenders are finally starting to take notice, which is why we are breaking production records quarter after quarter.”
That growth trajectory has also led Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions to hire six new Account Executives in the past 45 days alone. Coming on board are Mark Dombrowski in Arizona, Tim Saucier in Maine, Gil Moran in Chicago, Shawn Hartman in Indianapolis, Robyn Smith-Manchas in Oregon and Jennifer Hernandez in Southern California.
In addition to the new staff, Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions is in the process of expanding its Dallas operations center.
“As the non-QM market continues to grow, Angel Oak is well-positioned to continue to lead,” said Hutchens. “We’ve always sought the best and brightest in our hiring. As we’ve grown, we’ve stayed dedicated to that philosophy, and I firmly believe it’s been a major factor in our success to date.”
