Mortgage Network Inc. has announced that Ryan Hayes has joined the company as senior vice president of residential lending. In his new role, Hayes will work with the executive team to identify, improve and implement best practices to ensure Mortgage Network continues to meet and exceed customer and business partner expectations. He will also work with the company's leadership to pursue strategic development and growth opportunities designed to strengthen the company's position in the mortgage banking industry.
Hayes has nearly 20 years of mortgage banking experience and has held roles in mortgage origination, secondary market operations and executive leadership. Most recently, he served as senior vice president of residential lending at Salem Five Bank, where he was responsible for all operational activities, including the development, implementation and compliance monitoring of all lending policies and procedures. Hayes also serves on the board of directors for the Massachusetts Mortgage Banking Association (MMBA).
"Ryan brings with him a unique skillset and proven track record in managing technology, secondary markets, sales, credit, compliance, and operations," said Mortgage Network President Jim Comosa. "His credentials and experience nicely rounds out the strength of our leadership team and complements the longtime sales and operations leadership of Brian Koss and Sharon Dostie."
In addition to his professional work, Hayes is also a former board member of the Alex's Team Foundation, a non-profit organization that fights childhood cancer by funding pioneering programs in pediatric oncology research, education and care. He continues to support the foundation's focus on providing multiple layers of service-driven assistance to nursing care staff, doctors and families and help get closer to a cure for cancer.
"Adding Ryan to our team was an easy decision," said Robert McInnes, chairman and CEO of Mortgage Network. "His depth of industry experience and leadership, along with his work in the community makes him a perfect addition to our family."
Hayes said: "I am incredibly excited to join one of the premier independent mortgage bankers in the country and work with such a great leadership team. The chance to work with and learn from Robert McInnes and Jim Comosa, as well as collaborating with the current executive team, is an incredible opportunity. I hope to lead and introduce new ideas that will help continue to usher in growth and innovation to Mortgage Network."
