NMSI Inc. has named James Hooper President of Wholesale Lending, where he will be responsible for the growth strategy of the company’s wholesale and non-delegated lending channels.
“As I looked at the phenomenal growth we are currently seeing in the Broker market, my number one goal was to find a home that is truly committed to helping brokers grow,” said Hooper. “I was looking for a company to not just say it but execute. This is exactly what I found within NMSI with its state-of-the-art technology, robust product offering and motivating company culture; I have no doubt that NMSI will be a well-known name and a driving force very soon in the Broker community. This is a company with a great amount of forward momentum and not a lot of companies today can say this in our market today.”
Hooper comes to NMSI after serving in senior roles at several national financial companies, including Freedom Mortgage and TMS. Hooper was recently recognized by National Mortgage Professional Magazine as one of the industry’s most connected mortgage professionals. He was also honored with the Top “40 Under 40” distinction by National Mortgage Professional Magazine in 2015.
“I’m pleased to welcome James to NMSI Inc.,” said NMSI Chief Executive Officer Jae Chong. “His track record of sales leadership and building a best-in-class production organization is a perfect complement to our team. NMSI’s focus on third-party originations, married with our commitment to being on the leading edge of digitization, will result in a unique value proposition for our partners.”
