Keystone Funding is expanding its team and technology solutions in hopes to make homebuying simpler and more intuitive for customers, loan officers and preferred lending partners, according to a press release. The company named Jeffrey Antoine as its senior vice president and national sales director, while Ray Crew was named learning and development manager.

“We doubled in size over the past year helping customers take advantage of historic low-interest rates and others exploring vacation homes or bigger homes for teleworking. At a time when people are looking to make more moves or maximize their existing investments, we are building the right team and technology to make home buying and refinancing more straightforward,” said Keystone Funding CEO Timothy Paret.

Antoine brings 18 years of experience in senior sales leadership roles, most recently serving as senior manager of the southeastern region for JPMorgan Chase. He has held increasingly responsible leadership positions at Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Prime Lending, and Countrywide Home Loans. During the course of his career, Antoine has earned a proven track record and reputation for team building, coaching, and inspiring individuals to reach new heights both professionally and personally. He will be responsible for helping to accelerate Keystone's high-performance sales culture, community involvement and growth.

Crew has more than 20 years of experience in organizational change and performance improvement. He will be tasked with helping Keystone Funding's teams achieve their highest human potential and deliver a distinct customer experience across all channels, according to the press release. Previously, Crew founded his own consulting firm, where he pioneered the use of Role Discovery, a simulation-based learning methodology that helps people develop competency in problem-solving, decision making, innovation, collaboration, influence, and coaching. Prior to that, he was a chief learning executive for The American Automobile Association and Arbitration Forums Inc. and head of research and product development for Development Dimensions (DDI).

“By employing a customer-centric workforce and intelligent technology, we can manage and communicate each application milestone every step of the way," said Paret.
