CAPE COD, Mass., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Kobold, with more than a dozen years of local lending experience on Cape Cod, has joined Prospect Mortgage as newly appointed Branch Manager on Cape Cod. Prospect Mortgage is among the nation's leading independent residential mortgage lenders.
In his new role, Kobold will be responsible for expanding Prospect's reach on the Cape and for overseeing the opening and operation of a new Prospect branch in Orleans, an existing branch in Osterville and other Capewide branches to come. Prospect's goal in the next 18 months is to become the Cape Cod lender of choice.
Kobold, a former Loan Officer at Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, will report to Prospect Mortgage District Manager Scott Gannon. "All Prospect Mortgage decision-making will be done locally and expeditiously," says District Manager Gannon. "Prospect Mortgage has the national resources and range of home loan solutions that most lenders cannot match, and, may, in fact, be able to fund loans in this challenging economy that other lenders might deny."
Kobold specializes in USDA, Mass Housing and FHA loans. Before entering the mortgage industry, he worked as a Delta Airlines pilot, flying 737s. Earlier, as a Navy pilot, he flew F-14s and participated in Operation Southern Watch over Iraq and the Invasion of Somalia. Kobold and his wife, Julie, a teacher at Nauset Regional High School in Eastham, live in Brewster. They are actively involved in local, regional and national charities and causes including Donate Life America, a not-for-profit organization committed to increasing organ, eye and tissue donation.
"Jeff Kobold brings a level of professionalism, community understanding and business knowledge not often seen in our industry today," added Gannon.
