GLASTONBURY, Conn., May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- William H. W. Crawford, IV, CEO of United Bank, today announced that two of the Bank's top bankers earned national recognition this month for their individual and team success in their respective lines of business, placing them among the best-of-the-best in mortgage banking and investment services.
Jarret Coleman, Vice President and Private Mortgage Banker, earned a spot in Mortgage Professional America's (MPA) coveted 150 Million Dollar Club, which celebrates the top performers in the American mortgage industry. To qualify for the 150 Million Dollar Club, a banker must have originated $150 million or more in loan volume in 2016.
Coleman, who joined United in 2014, has been instrumental in building the Bank's residential lending business in the Fairfield County and New York markets. He's also received other honors while at United, including being ranked nationally in the top 1% for first mortgage loan closing volume; ranked in the Scotsman Guide's Top 100, a leading resource for mortgage originators; Connecticut Five Star Professional Award from 2013 to 2016; ranked #1 Loan Officer in Connecticut in the first quarter of 2015 by The Commercial Record; and named to United Bank's "Chairman's Club" – the Bank's highest internal recognition for overall performance in mortgage production.
MPA is a news source in the mortgage and finance industry that provides industry news, opinion and analysis.
Chris Nardone , Senior Vice President, United Bank and Program Director for United Northeast Financial Advisors (UNFA) was ranked 11th nationally this year by Bank Investment Consultant (BIC) in their annual top 25 program managers of investment services programs at banks and credit unions. UNFA is the trade name for the bank's retail investment services program. Securities offered through Infinex Investments, Inc. Member FINRA/SIPC.

Chris joined United Bank and Infinex in 2015 and currently leads a team of 12 financial advisors.

"On behalf of our employees and Board of Directors, I would like to personally congratulate Jarret and Chris for these well-deserved national recognitions," said William H.W. Crawford, IV, CEO. "You have to work incredibly hard to earn a reputation as being among the best-of-the-best in the banking industry. Although Jarret and Chris represent two different lines of business at United, their approach to customer service, leadership and teamwork is identical and the key reason why they've become top performers inside the Bank and throughout the banking industry."
"Chris joined United Bank in September 2015 so what he and his team have been able to do in less than two years has been remarkable – and this national accolade reflects that success," said Brandon R. Lorey, Executive Vice President and Head of Consumer Banking. "It says a lot about their ability to successfully build client relationships and their reputation for being able to tailor financial solutions that are right for the customer. We're witnessing a lot of energy and enthusiasm among our financial advisors and Premier Bankers so we applaud Chris for bringing a culture of teamwork, hard work and customer service to United Northeast Financial Advisors."
"As someone who has managed loan officers for 30 years I can honestly say that I've never had someone as efficient, effective and customer-focused as Jarret Coleman on my teams," said Joseph Antonios, Vice President and Private Mortgage Banker. "Jarret's top priority is his customers and the referrals he gets are the strongest validation of his commitment to customer service. And if you asked him why he's been so successful in his ever-rising career in mortgage banking, he will always include our staff in that discussion – another reason why we are fortunate to have Jarret as a teammate at United Bank."
