New American Funding promotes company veteran to newly created role

New American Funding has promoted Christine Obermayer from senior sales manager to vice president of retention.

The newly created role will see Obermayer take responsibility for the company’s retention department and help current customers navigate their refinance options. Obermayer brings nearly 24 years of mortgage industry experience, including 10 years at New American Funding.

“We are incredibly proud of Christine and excited that she is taking on this new role.
