New hire is an industry veteran with substantial experience in affordable lending
New American Funding has appointed Mark Tribuna as its new regional business development manager for Arizona, Nevada, and Central and Northern California.
In a statement, the national lender said that Tribuna will be working directly with its network of loan originators and operational professionals to support the lending activities required to serve affordable homebuilders in the three states.
Tribuna is based out of New American Funding’s Mid-Pacific regional office in Henderson, Nevada, and reports to Chris Garza, senior vice president of the Mid-Pacific region.
“Mark brings a wealth of experience promoting and implementing comprehensive plans to achieve affordable homeownership,” said Garza. “This will be instrumental in expanding our efforts with non-profit homebuilders, as well as recruiting opportunities.”
An industry veteran with substantial experience in affordable lending, Tribuna has served as co-president for a Dallas-based non-profit lender that specializes in approving affordable home loans for local homebuyers. He has also worked as lead consultant for one of the nation’s largest affordable homebuilders and was tasked with creating new programs and products supporting the mortgage-lending activities of its nearly 1,200 affiliates.
“I am excited to have joined an industry leader and a true maverick in lending,” said Tribuna. “Supporting affordable homeownership with a proven lender like New American Funding is my passion, and together we can serve underserved communities and help enhance their quality of life.”
