Freedom Mortgage Corp., a New Jersey-based lender licensed in all 50 states, has appointed six new executives.
Five of the new hires will be working in the company's growing commercial lending division, while one has been hired to the residential mortgage lending division. The company says it has over 2,000 employees nationwide.
David Firestone, Freedom Mortgage's new executive vice president of financial operations, will be working on the residential mortgage lending side and was hired as a key component of Freedom Mortgage's plans to grow and expand its residential mortgage lending division. He is charged with financial reporting, tax management, analysis and financial administration.
Prior to joining Freedom Mortgage, Firestone was lead partner with Friedman LLP. He has been a consultant to Freedom Mortgage since 2003, with extensive experience handling the company's internal accounting, taxes and other special projects.
The five executives hired in the company's New York-based commercial division are as follows: vice presidents Nerissa Hochenberg and Robert Quinn, who are also senior members of the underwriting and transaction management team; Roger Boone, a loan originator focusing on business development on the East Coast; Ross Aseron, IT director; and David Porcelli, senior product developer.
Hochenberg, Quinn and Boone are veterans with 15 to 20 years of mortgage industry experience. Aseron and Porcelli have decades of experience in product development, security and support, the company says.
