Together, they will lead the charge in deepening our relationship with Hawaii's homebuyers and owners, and help guide the future of real estate lending for the Hawaii communities," said Alec Hanson, loanDepot's SVP of production.
 
Overseeing loanDepot's Hawaii Retail sales operations is Area Manager Jason Martinson, who comes to loanDepot with 20 years of experience gained at local branches of Bank of Hawaii, Central Pacific Bank, Hawaii HomeLoans Inc., Countrywide and HomeStreet Bank. Martinson currently serves as president of the Mortgage Bankers Association of Hawaii and is a board member of the Hawaii Homeownership Land Trust and Nanakuli Housing Corporation.
 
Managing the Honolulu Retail location is Dawn Robinson Naya, who has worked in Hawaii's mortgage industry for the past 26 years in origination and sales management positions for companies such as Homebridge Financial (HomeStreet Bank).
 
The Maui Retail location welcomes Loan Consultant Kim Kawachi, a Chairman's Elite Performer. Born and raised on Maui, Kawachi has helped many families purchase homes and refinance their mortgages over a 16-year career in mortgage lending. She has been a top-producing loan originator in previous positions at HomeStreet Bank and Wells Fargo on Maui.
 
"Our Hawaii team's first order of business is to find the most qualified local talent and set them up for success," said Martinson. "With digital transformation revolutionizing home lending, today's loan consultants need modern tools and interconnectivity to be effective and efficient. loanDepot is the only contemporary brand among the top retail lenders to offer this."
 
John Bianchi, loanDepot's EVP, national production manager, said: "Thanks to the vision and direction of Hsieh, loanDepot is setting the pace for the non-bank lending community. We see tremendous growth opportunity in Hawaii, and this expansion is just the beginning of what we believe will be a significant investment in the Island communities."
