A national mortgage loan sub-servicer has welcomed two more leaders to its executive team just a week after announcing five other promotions and appointments.

“I want to congratulate both Jay and Allyson,” Chief Administrative Officer Glen Vilim said. “They are both valuable team members with proven track records in their respective fields who are also committed to delivering the very best service to our clients and their homeowners.”

Hackney brings two decades of experience in the mortgage industry to Cenlar, holding previous executive positions at Shellpoint Mortgage Servicing and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. 

In this new position he will lead a team dedicated to providing top-notch loan boarding experiences for clients and their homeowners, the company said in a statement.

Kiesel, who joined Cenlar in 2016 as a Risk Manager, has been in the industry for over a decade. In her new post she will be responsible for building Cenlar’s Enterprise Change Management Program and managing its change management team, which leads issues management from root cause through remediation, the company said.

Hackney earned his Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from Arizona State University, and Kiesel holds a Juris Doctor from Western Michigan University Law School and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Drexel University. She is also a Certified Change Practitioner and a licensed attorney in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
