by Ryan Smith18 Oct 2017
New American Funding has appointed Scott Bristol as its new senior vice president and national sales manager. Bristol will spearhead advancing the growth of New American Funding’s retail division in new and existing markets.

Bristol, a 20-year industry veteran, will be part of New American Funding’s senior leadership team. Prior to taking his new role, Bristol spent eight years at PrimeLending, most recently as that company’s president. Under his leadership, PrimeLending became one of the nation’s top 10 lenders in purchase units. Bristol has also been recognized as one of the country’s most influential mortgage executives.

In his new role, Bristol will help manage productivity for NAF originators, as well as working with regional managers to maximize their profitability.

“I’m looking forward to this opportunity. The quality of the people from the ownership down is first-class,” he said. “New American Funding’s focus on people, technology, marketing and providing a superior experience for borrowers and employees is spot-on. When you have great products, interest rates and compensation plans, it creates a platform that can win in a rapidly changing mortgage industry.”

“We feel honored and encouraged that after vetting many of our worthy competitors, Mr. Bristol felt our operational prowess, marketing advantage, and proprietary software gave him the best foundation to continue his stellar career,” said Rick Arvielo, co-CEO of New American Funding.

“It’s a tremendous privilege to have Scott at New American Funding,” said Jon Reed, executive vice president of national sales. “He has a solid reputation inside and outside of our company. He’s highly regarded and brings a wealth of experience to the management team. He deepens our leadership for retail growth while embracing our culture and values.”
