AIME names executive vice president of strategy

The Association of Independent Mortgage Experts (AIME) has announced that Katie Sweeney has joined the organization as executive vice president of strategy.

Sweeney, who has served in the mortgage industry for four years, will head AIME’s business objectives aimed toward supporting and expanding the wholesale mortgage broker channel. She will also grow the association’s financial support through lender sponsorships, building vendor partnerships, and developing retail-to-wholesale recruitment efforts.

Additionally, Sweeney will work with AIME’s member base to boost engagement with products and services, as well as strengthen broker business across the US.

“We’re thrilled to have Katie join the AIME team. She is a rising star in the industry and brings incredible value to our team and broker community,” said AIME Chairman Anthony Casa. “Katie has an extraordinary mind for the mortgage business, and her experience and relationships with numerous lenders and vendors in the space will be impactful in AIME’s continued efforts to grow and support the mortgage broker channel.”

Most recently, Sweeney held leadership roles at the tech startup ARIVE, where she led the acquisition of B2B associates as senior vice president before stepping into the position of executive vice president of strategy.

“I am very excited to take on such an important role with AIME,” Sweeney said. “I look forward to facilitating a broader range of solutions for independent mortgage brokers that include technology, but also extend well beyond to holistically support and grow the broker channel with innovative entrepreneurial and business management principles.”
