Non-agency lender Deephaven Mortgage has named Shelly Griffin (pictured) as senior vice president of client development.

Previously director of client risk management, Griffin will now focus on making it easy and efficient for Deephaven’s correspondent partners to originate non-agency products – enabling them to improve their loan volume and borrower satisfaction.

Griffin, who brings 20 years of mortgage industry expertise, first joined Deephaven in 2014 as vice president of client development and director of client risk management. She resigned after more than six years at the company. Before returning to Deephaven this year, Griffin had a few stints at Nomis Solutions and First Guaranty Mortgage.

“Shelly embodies Deephaven’s vision of an evolving mortgage industry, aligning itself to a broad range of homebuyers, from first-time purchasers to investors and entrepreneurs,” said John Keratsis, CEO and president of Deephaven. “We are excited to have someone with her strong experience and bold outlook on our senior leadership team.”

“I am thrilled to harness our ingenuity and market responsiveness to help our partners compete more effectively,” Griffin said. “Deephaven’s ability to provide a diverse range of products and price points through multiple delivery channels gives correspondents an advantage in their markets.”
