In a news release, loanDepot said Hanson will oversee the development of new revenue-generating opportunities, including national referral relationships and acquisitions. He will work closely with the company’s senior leadership team to expand loanDepot’s existing portfolio of programs and partnerships outside of the company’s successful joint venture channel.

“Through the execution of our Vision 2025 plan, we’ve done the hard work to ensure we can continue to address the impacts of the current market downturn and still invest in our platform,” said Jeff Walsh, president of mortgage at loanDepot. “This includes driving growth through accretive acquisitions, referral relationships, and other strategic partnerships. Our scale, marketing prowess, industry-leading tech stack and strong cash reserves all position us well for the next chapter of our history, and Dan will play a critical role in driving our growth and success.”
