New names to boost its presence in the mortgage broker space
Home equity-focused lender Button Finance has bolstered its leadership team with the addition of Amanda Niswonger (pictured) as senior account manager.
In this role, Niswonger will be in charge of expanding Button Finance’s existing mortgage broker network to generate new revenue channels. Niswonger is a 15-year mortgage veteran with a proven track record in leading sales and marketing teams. She most recently served as an account executive at IBC First Equity and worked as a senior account manager at Arch Mortgage Insurance before that.
In addition to Niswonger’s appointment, Button has also hired Brendan Breitinger as an account executive. Breitinger comes to Button from Rocket Mortgage, where he worked as a credit underwriter. He also spent nearly six years at United Wholesale Mortgage as an account executive.
“On the heels of our recent capital raise and to support the growing interest in Button Finance, we are excited to tap Amanda’s wealth of experience and product expertise,” said Button Finance CEO Jason Harris. “Amanda’s deep connections and strong relationships in the mortgage industry will enable us to expand our engagement in the mortgage broker space significantly.”
