Planet Home Lending has hired Patrick Couture as senior vice president of servicing platform development.

“Planet’s impressive leadership team, dedication to investors and entrepreneurial culture drew me to this opportunity,” Couture said. “As a non-bank mortgage lender and servicer, Planet has the ability to be more nimble and strategic than traditional banks. It’s well-positioned to take advantage of market opportunities, which will result in substantial future growth.”
