InterLinc Mortgage Services has announced that Gene F. Thompson III, who has served as company President since 2010, is now the Chief Operating Officer. A 20-year veteran of the mortgage lending industry, Gene has been with InterLinc since 2007, where he has served as both Executive Vice President and President.
“Adding the COO title in some ways simply acknowledges my role in overseeing central operations and our branch network,” said Thompson. “I’m honored by the trust James VanSteenhouse has always placed in me, and I will continue my focus on growth and maximum profitability without ever sacrificing customer service.”
“Gene’s decades of experience in the mortgage banking industry, combined with his dynamic approach to sales and operations, has brought InterLinc unprecedented growth opportunities,” said James H. VanSteenhouse, InterLinc CEO. “The long-lasting relationships that he’s built with builders and realtors have enabled InterLinc to become a powerhouse in the mortgage industry. As both President and COO, Gene will have even greater opportunities to apply both his exceptional strategic acumen and his operational skills to helping InterLinc meet our goals for growth and our ongoing commitment to unparalleled customer service.”
