by Candyd Mendoza08 Jan 2020

CrossCountry Mortgage has announced the appointment of Beth Lewis as senior vice president of mortgage lending.

Lewis, who has more than a decade of experience in the mortgage banking industry, joined CrossCountry from Chicago-based CIBC US. She worked at CIBC as a senior mortgage banker. Before that, Lewis served as vice president of mortgage lending at Perl Mortgage.

“Beth has been established in the Chicago market for decades and brings a long history of outstanding origination performance and customer service to CCM,” said Chris Knapp, executive vice president at CrossCountry Mortgage. “Her tenacity and expertise will help us hit the ground running in 2020 as we continue the momentum and strong growth we saw in 2019, particularly in Chicago but also across the country.”

“Communication is the key to removing the mystery and fear of home lending, and CCM shares my commitment to being open and transparent with all of my buyers throughout the homebuying process,” Lewis said. “My favorite part of the process is telling people ‘we’re clear to close.’ CCM has the tools and resources that will empower me to say that to more customers than ever before, and more quickly as well.”
