Hometown Lenders has named Kriss Bates division manager for the company’s West Coast Production team.
 
With more than 20 years in the business, Bates quickly reached management and spent much of his career helping numerous branches grow their book of business. Bates retired from the mortgage industry in May 2018. In Early 2019, Bates met with top executives at Hometown Lenders and it was immediately apparent that Bates could have a great impact on the company.
 
"We have worked really hard to find the right professionals to grow and expand with," said John Taylor, president of Hometown Lenders. "The minute I met Kriss, I knew I wanted him to be a big part of our company. Kriss' extensive knowledge and experience is a huge asset as we continue to expand across the country."
 
Bates joins his sons Charly and Branden at Hometown Lenders, but will mainly be focused on growing the Hometown brand, production and operations for the company on the west side of the country.
 
"The reason I came back to work is I found a company that is truly open and transparent with the desire to grow," said Bates. "The most important job of a manager is to support your teams. That philosophy has been a big part of my development in the industry and I see the same culture in Hometown Lenders."
 
Hometown Lenders Owner and CEO Billy Taylor said, "It is incredibly important to find the right people when you're growing at the pace we are. Kriss brings so much to the table that is exciting to us. He understands the business so well and knows exactly how to help our branches achieve their goals."
