CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingTree, the leading online source for competitive loan offers, has announced the addition of Sam Mischner to its senior leadership team as senior vice president of sales.
Mischner began his career in the mortgage industry as a loan officer before founding his own mortgage company, which he merged and later sold. He joins LendingTree from Strategic Lending Group, where he most recently started and scaled a mortgage division for their bank holding company. Mischner was responsible for running sales, marketing, operations and technology.
"We're thrilled to have Sam join the team. As a mortgage leader, he brings a deep wealth of industry knowledge that will enable us to build out our local distribution models. And as the mortgage business shifts from primarily refinance to a more purchase-driven market, his experience and understanding of the industry will be instrumental and invaluable to our lender network," said Gabe Dalporto, CMO and president of mortgage at LendingTree.
"I'm excited to be part of an amazing company with a brand that focuses on the consumer experience," said Mischner. "LendingTree is helping move the industry in an exciting direction of innovation and technology. My goal is to grow and enhance sales by helping our existing lenders diversify while expanding our network by educating banks and lenders about the quality borrowers that come through our platform."
Mischner will be responsible for new lender sales, account management and lender operations, working closely with account managers and over 300 lenders on the LendingTree network.
