InterLinc Mortgage, a full-service mortgage lender, has hired Kara Lamphere, as chief operations officer. She was previously with Guaranteed Rate.
Lamphere marks the first female in a C-suite role at the Houston-based InterLinc. She is a seasoned mortgage executive with over 20 years of experience in operations, sales and compliance.
“InterLinc’s story and trajectory were major factors in my decision to become a part of this incredible company. Their history of success and the constant pursuit of a better experience for every borrower, business partner and employee are why I decided to join,” said Lamphere.
Alongside Lamphere, two other leadership roles have also been filled by women this year. Thu-Lynn “TL” Nguyen joined InterLinc as vice president of marketing and Ana LeBlanc joined as director of human resources. Over two-thirds of InterLinc’s employees are women, the company noted in a press release.
“Over the past two years, we’ve implemented a targeted approach to strategically scale our company and grow at a rapid, yet sustainable pace. By adding the right members to our team, our company has quickly progressed and will continue to grow through branch locations in major cities,” said Gene F Thompson III, CEO and president. InterLinc added over 160 team members and 12 branches in 2021.
