She spent most of her career at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, most recently as the company's vice president, national condominium manager. She previously held other leadership roles at Wells Fargo, including vice president, national strategic alliances manager, and vice president, regional sales manager.  

"We are tremendously excited to have Kim join our team," said Jason Will, senior vice president of market growth at Embrace.  "Kim brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, an infectious enthusiasm, and the outstanding ability to develop meaningful strategic relationships and energize high-performing teams."

Castiglioni is a member of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) and the National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB's) Multifamily Council. She is a sought-after speaker at the International Builder Show and has extensive experience working with industry trade associations and housing agencies.

Embrace originated $6.4 billion in mortgage loans in 2020, a company record and a 70% increase from 2019. The company plans to double its retail production in 2021 and increase business in its consumer-direct and financial institutions group divisions, with a focus on purchase loans.
