Equity Prime Mortgage strengthens leadership development with new EVP

Equity Prime Mortgage (EPM) has announced the appointment of Julian Sado (pictured) as executive vice president of leadership and development.

In his new role, Sado will lead the lender’s formal and informal leadership development. EPM said that the addition of Sado is in line with the company’s need to create a strategy and culture for leadership.

“We can have the most skilled and innovative minds on our team, but if they aren’t supported through a strong culture, it’s just a waste of resources. Leaders can be born, but they can also be developed,” said Eddy Perez, CEO of Equity Prime Mortgage. “With Sado, we have the ability to elevate and empower others in a way that hasn’t been done before in this industry.”

Sado, who brings over two decades of mortgage industry experience, joined EPM from Planet Home Lending. Before that, he was the national training manager at private mortgage insurance company Radian. He also held similar roles as Capital One Home Loans, USAA, and Mortgage Lenders Network.

 “All of us are leaders. Leadership isn’t about just me speaking; it’s about people speaking and seeing alignment from their conversation. When we find commonalities, that’s when the connection starts,” Sado said.
