Fort Washington, PA— Newrez LLC (“Newrez”, the “Company”), a national mortgage lending and servicing organization, announced today that Newrez Chief Marketing Officer (“CMO”) Brad Jones has been presented with the 2022 NextGen Leader award by PROGRESS in Lending.
PROGRESS in Lending’s NextGen Leader award program recognizes true visionaries and mortgage industry thought leaders with 15 years of experience or less. The NextGen Leaders awards honor trailblazing leaders who have demonstrated their ability to challenge status quo and step forward with new ideas and creativity to improve all practices across the mortgage vertical.
Mr. Jones began paving his own path in the mortgage industry in 2012. He has spent his entire career to date in the mortgage industry in a variety of roles, running the gamut from loan officer to sales director to chief marketing officer. His unique career path has equipped him with a holistic understanding of the lending process and how to best market and sell mortgage products.
“My approach to leadership stems from the fact that I do not believe we are selling mortgages, I believe we are working hard every day to put people in homes. That differentiation is what inspires me to achieve more and do better every day and it is the premise for how I lead our marketing team at Newrez,” said Jones. “I truly believe the work we do every day makes a difference. This is the lens that other members of industry leadership can take on in order to inspire big change in a space that requires constant evolution to better serve upcoming generations.”
As CMO of Newrez, Brad’s focus as a marketing leader is to change the way that the mortgage industry is perceived. He believes that his team – and other marketing departments as well – have the power to do so. His marketing efforts are intended to empower borrowers with the tools, support and transparency that they need to ensure they are equipped to make the most educated decision for themselves when it comes to choosing a lender and taking out a mortgage.
“Brad has built a robust in-house marketing team that has revolutionized the way we are communicating with past, present and prospective customers – we are joining their paths to homeownership much earlier in the process through a combination of educational resources, targeted messaging and innovative partnerships that widen our reach, said Baron Silverstein, President of Newrez. “Brad’s focus on adding value to each customer’s homeownership journey drives Newrez forward every day – he is an invaluable leader to Newrez and has played a major part in shaping our culture for the better.”
