Nations Lending enters new market

Nations Lending has announced its latest expansion in Oregon. The company will open offices in Medford, Ashland, and Grants Pass, with industry veteran Sheryl Osborn at the helm.

The Cleveland-headquartered mortgage lender also tapped sales manager William Ward and loan officers Kelly Lauerman, Linda Fitzgerald, Crystal Troy, Mitch Poitevint, and their support teams to join Osborn's group.

Osborn joined Nations from Caliber Home Loans, where she spent three years as a branch manager. The 20-year mortgage professional also held similar roles at loanDepot, Bank of America, and Sterling Savings Bank.

"There's no doubt in my mind that Sheryl is the right fit for the job," said Nino Saso, west divisional sales manager at Nations. "We've spent a lot of time and resources building our corporate functions specifically to support people of Sheryl's caliber. We look forward to the value Sheryl and her team will bring to Nations."
