Lenders One Cooperative
, a national alliance of independent Mortgage Bankers, has named Brian A. Simon as its new President.
Simon was most recently President of Thrivest Legal Funding, LLC, a full-service litigation funding company. He was previously COO of New Penn Financial (now known as NewRez), CEO of Caliber Funding LLC and COO of Freedom Mortgage.
“I am extremely excited to join Lenders One at this very important time for our industry,” said Simon. “With margins continuing to compress, now more than ever, Lenders One needs to help its members compete against larger and often better capitalized companies. I look forward to working with the Lenders One team and partnering with the Lenders One members and preferred providers to continue to develop and implement solutions that improve our members’ competitiveness and grow their earnings.”
