ATLANTA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Equity Loans LLC, a leader in the residential mortgage industry whose operations extend to more than 30 states, announced today that it will transition top management and key employees from IFG Mortgage Corp., a mortgage origination firm that serves the lending needs of real estate professionals, builders and individual home buyers.
“This transition is a great opportunity for IFG’s employees, as it enables them to join an incredibly solid lending institution that will continue to provide exceptional service for IFG’s clients, as well as provide a positive work environment that emulates IFG’s core values”
“We are thrilled to welcome IFG’s employees to the Equity Loans family,” said Kunjan “KP” Patel, CEO of Equity Loans. “To make this transition as seamless as possible, a team from Equity Loans visited IFG’s headquarters to ensure we have a full understanding of IFG’s clients and partners. The combination of IFG’s experienced staff and strong industry relationships will be an excellent addition to Equity Loans, further expanding our footprint and opportunities for future growth.”
In addition to several key staffers, the following IFG leaders will now join Equity Loans:
- Keith Binsfeld, Area Director
- Shawn M. Cohen, Director of Originations
- Steve Fishman, Director of Operations
- Ben Stucker, Director of Senior Lending
- Ed Walsh, Area Director
- Brad Wurtz, Vice President of Business Development
“This transition is a great opportunity for IFG’s employees, as it enables them to join an incredibly solid lending institution that will continue to provide exceptional service for IFG’s clients, as well as provide a positive work environment that emulates IFG’s core values,” said Binsfeld. “Equity Loans is recognized as one of the top mortgage lenders in the nation, so we know this a critical, positive move for IFG. We are looking forward to our employees’ future with the Equity Loans team.”
Equity Loans’ strong foundation is backed by its approval from Fannie Mae as a seller/servicer of one-to-four family first lien mortgages for whole loan execution. Earlier this year, Equity Loans also announced its expansion into the wholesale market, further strengthening the lender’s servicing portfolio and diverse product offering. Equity Loans leverages the same technology platform as IFG, which will help ease the transition.
Equity Loans was recently named to the Inc. 500|5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies. In addition to its overall ranking, Equity Loans was ranked in the top 100 financial services companies, top 100 Georgia companies and one of the top companies in the Atlanta metro area. In addition to the Inc. recognition, Equity Loans was named a 2012 Scotsman Guide Top Mortgage Lender – the most comprehensive, most intensely verified list of its kind in the mortgage industry.
