Non-QM industry veteran Samuel Bjelac has returned to Carrington Mortgage Services as SVP, national sales, TPO (third-party origination).
Bjelac is a respected, well-seasoned leader, with a plethora of non-QM experience, who is prepared to broaden Carrington’s footprint in non-agency lending, the firm says in a release.
Bjelac previously served as divisional vice president of the Carrington Mortgage Services wholesale lending team.
Prior to his return to Carrington Mortgage Services, Bjelac honed his non-QM expertise as EVP of national sales at Sprout Mortgage, while also leading the third-party origination teams at CoreVest Finance and LendingOne.
His experience will immediately be utilized to build on Carrington Mortgage Services’ existing non-QM foundation to expand its footprint and grow the company’s non-QM business, a critical part of its ongoing lending business strategy.
Greg Austin, EVP, Lending, for Carrington Mortgage Services, says Bjelac’s “deep understanding of the non-QM business, along with his sales leadership experience” make him “very excited about the future of wholesale and correspondent at CMS.”
Bjelac’s primary areas of responsibility include aligning the wholesale and correspondent sales organizations with Carrington’s overall objectives.
He will provide daily leadership to wholesale and correspondent sales leaders as they engage with brokers from initial contact through all phases of the loan origination process.
