Non-QM lender Angel Oak has opened a new branch in West Palm Beach, Fla., that is being managed by Todd Matthews.
Matthews has managed and grown sales teams throughout the Sunshine State for more than 20 years, the company says in a release.
He has a track record of developing top-performing sales teams and recruiting high-level talent.
Over the course of his career, Matthews has built a reputation for high-quality customer service.
In addition to his management skills, Matthews has a clear understanding of mortgage marketing and operations and has worked closely with secondary markets. He started his career at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage as a branch manager in Florida, eventually working his way up to regional program manager. This experience provided him with valuable insight into how loan officers can grow within a company and what it takes to become a top performer.
Since then, Matthews has held senior leadership positions focused on coaching and mentoring loan officers in the region.
In his new role with Angel Oak, Matthews will help attract loan officers and support the company’s lofty growth expectations for this year, both internally and externally.
To help achieve these goals, Angel Oak also recently hired Ed Powell to lead its new consumer direct division in Charlotte, N.C.
