Nations Lending opens new Arizona branch

Nations Lending continues to expand its footprint in Arizona with the opening of its Scottsdale branch.

The independent lender hired Stacey Gross (pictured), a mortgage industry veteran with 13 years of experience under her belt, as branch manager. Gross will report to regional manager Mike Towery, who oversees the branch’s growth in loan volume production and team members.

“Stacey is a valuable asset and addition to Nations Lending,” Towery said. “Her experience working as an agent and a lender provides great insight into both sides of the market. She will lead our new branch to incredible heights.”

Gross joined Nations after seven years at Caliber Home Loans, where she was also a branch manager. Prior to Caliber, Gross held various mortgage roles at Old Republic Home Protection, HomeSmart, and Merrill Lynch. She also served the country as an Army veteran of foreign wars.

“I joined Nations for its value of the three P’s: product, programs, and people,” said Gross. “These are the keys to success for anyone who wants to be successful in the lending industry. I’m excited to grow our Arizona presence even further.”
