“Mr. Kelly’s deep industry experience and track record makes him the right leader for Change Wholesale,” said Ted Ray, president of Change Home Mortgage. “I look forward to working with Denis to scale our industry leading, proprietary loans such as our community mortgage. We are laser focused on helping our broker-partners grow their businesses by financing prime borrowers their competitors can’t.”

“I am excited to join Change Home Mortgage to lead its wholesale division at this pivotal moment in its rapid growth,” said Kelly. “Change Wholesale has successfully emerged as the dominant originator of residential mortgage loans to prime borrowers who are not well served by banks and traditional lenders. I look forward to leading Change’s talented wholesale team to help our broker partners grow their businesses by using Change’s proprietary products to serve prime borrowers that others cannot.”
