Amir Syed has joined mortgage fintech Lower as chief growth officer.
“The atmosphere is ecstatic with Amir joining the Lower Family of Companies,” says Mike Baynes, co-founder and managing partner, Lower, in a release. “Amir’s immense energy, proven track record, and expert ability to nurture talent align perfectly with the explosive growth Lower is driving. His focus on cultivating modern loan officers is the key to success not only in the present but also in the future.”
Syed has closed over $1 billion in loan volume. He is the co-founder of the loan officer coaching platform, Growth Only Coaching, which boasts 400+ loan officers, managers, and executives.
In his new role with Lower, Syed will organize the company’s multi-channel strategy to drive exponential market share. He will focus on elevating production through coaching and bringing Lower’s innovative ‘online-offline strategy’ to life.
“There are five essential components lacking in the mortgage industry right now, but Lower excels in every single one of them,” Syed says. “Unlike any other organization, Lower possesses progressive leadership and vision, cutting-edge marketing strategies, a standout private label platform for top-producing loan officers and groups, a unified technology stack, and the venture capital funding required to pioneer new paths.”
Backed by VC firm Accel, Lower operates an online consumer-direct channel, offline retail channel, and third-party origination platform servicing both brokers and other fintechs like Opendoor.
