Mortgage lender Nations Lending recently announced new additions to its leadership team.

Corey Caster joins as the executive vice president of national production, and Jordan Gerard has been promoted to division retail sales manager after four years with the company as branch manager of multiple retail locations.  In addition, Derek DeGutis has also joined the team as division retail sales manager.

As a member of Nations Lending's leadership team, Caster will lead national production. He previously led NewRez's retail and joint venture division and brings with him over 20 years of experience in key leadership roles.

Gerard is tasked with overseeing the company's strategy to grow its new retail channel in all markets. Previously, he successfully managed multiple Nations Lending retail branches spanning several states and territories. On the other hand, DeGutis will be focused on expanding Nation’s market reach.

"What you're seeing is the direct result of our growth and success over the years by doing things a little differently, by taking care of people first," said Jeremy Sopko, CEO of Nations Lending. "I believe our ability to bring in such stellar talent as Corey and Derek, plus grow and advance Jordan into his new position, is a direct testament to that. The entire Nations family is excited for the future that these three gentlemen will help create.”
