New American Funding names chief marketing officer

New American Funding (NAF) has tapped Andrew Strickman (pictured) as its new chief marketing officer.

Strickman will lead a team of over 50 seasoned marketers across the company’s digital operations and an in-house print shop. He will also spearhead NAF’s brand, events, insights, strategy, and audience marketing efforts.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Andrew to the NAF family,” NAF president Christy Bunce said in a release. “As a mission-driven mortgage lender that believes homeownership opportunity should be available to all, Andrew comes to us with a wealth of knowledge working with and for purpose-driven companies like ours. His perspective on building brands that drive business results and his approach to storytelling will serve us well as we move into this next chapter of our company’s history.”

Before NAF, Strickman served as chief marketing officer of Care Access, a mission-driven healthcare startup and has spent the past few years advising other purpose-focused startups and non-profit organizations.

Strickman’s 20-year career also includes time spent at, 826 National, Yahoo, and Ammo Marketing.

“I fundamentally believe that a path to homeownership is possible for everyone, including those within underserved communities who have previously been denied access to lending,” Strickman said. “As a huge admirer of what Patty and Rick Arvielo and the NAF team have done to build education and support into the lending process, opening up opportunities for many more potential homebuyers, I know we have so much great work ahead to deliver in service to that mission.”
