“In addition to being a natural servant leader with a proven track record of developing profitable branches in the Pacific Northwest, Kelly has been a longtime mentor to me since I first started out in this business,” said Kevin Hanna, president of the Churchill Mortgage Pacific Northwest region. “He’s an undeniable asset to the team with his attention to detail, a knack for collaborative problem solving and dedication to a people-centric culture. We’re assembling the dream team to create something that hasn’t been seen or done before in the mortgage industry.”
