The Association of Independent Mortgage Experts (AIME)
has announced the addition of Katie Sweeney as executive vice president of strategy. In her new position Sweeney will work to bolster AIME’s mission to protect and support its members in the independent mortgage broker community and grow the wholesale mortgage broker channel moving forward.
Sweeney, who has worked in the mortgage industry for four years, most recently served as executive vice president of strategy at ARIVE, where she successfully executed various point of sale and CRM implementations, launched a custom-built wholesale broker portal, and spearheaded the acquisition of lender partners and other B2B associates to provide the wholesale channel with a first-of-its-kind “many-to-one” technology experience.
“We’re thrilled to have Katie join the AIME team. She is a rising star in the industry and brings incredible value to our team and broker community,” said Anthony Casa, AIME chairman. “Katie has an extraordinary mind for the mortgage business, and her experience and relationships with numerous lenders and vendors in the space will be impactful in AIME’s continued efforts to grow and support the mortgage broker channel.”
Sweeney will be tasked with leading AIME’s business objectives aimed toward supporting and growing the mortgage broker channel, including expanding the organization’s financial support through lender sponsorships, developing innovative vendor partnerships, and amplifying retail-to-wholesale recruitment initiatives. She will work directly with AIME’s membership base to drive an increase in engagement with products and services with the goal to strengthen broker businesses across the country.
“I am very excited to take on such an important role with AIME,” Sweeney said. “I look forward to facilitating a broader range of solutions for independent mortgage brokers that include technology, but also extend well beyond to holistically support and grow the broker channel with innovative entrepreneurial and business management principles.”
