“As we embrace our growth and progress as a sales organization, it’s important that we foster a winning culture that welcomes expertise, builds and develops client-centric philosophies, and embraces new ideas and fresh perspectives,” said Liz Bryant, head of Citi Retail Mortgage Sales. “Darin is just the supportive and innovative leader that is essential to helping guide our best-in-class team to success.” 

Bryant joined Citi a year ago, reorganizing Citi Mortgage’s coverage model late last year to grow the business and create mortgage divisions that better align with Citi’s Retail Banking Divisions.

In March, Bryant named Citi veteran Mike Fauth as the new division lending executive for the Central Southeast Division of Washington, D.C.; Southeast Florida; and Illinois. In January, Cyndee Kendall was named the Northern California division lending executive, while Stephanie Christie is the division lending executive for Southern California.
