Nations Lending welcomes Doug Opdycke as Vice President, Sales Recruitment.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Nations Lending, a leading full-service national mortgage lender, is excited to announce the addition of Doug Opdycke (pronounced: “Updike”) as Vice President of Sales Recruitment. In his new position, Opdycke will be leading Nations’ recruiting team at corporate headquarters in the Cleveland, Ohio area as well as supporting branch development within the company’s 83 existing locations across the U.S.

He will report to Corey Caster, Executive Vice President for National Production.

“Doug will be a big part of our broader strategy for growing distributed retail nationwide,” Caster said. “We’re thrilled to have attracted somebody of Doug’s caliber to lead our recruiting efforts.”

Nations’ growth propelled the company to break the $2 billion mark in loan volume in 2019 for the first time in company history, and in 2020, the company has its sights set even higher.

Opdycke, based in Scottsdale, Ariz., brings an extensive recruiting background to Nations Lending. Most recently, he spent the last five years building out and leading recruiting and branch development teams at Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp., where he played a significant role in the company’s aggressive retail growth.

“Nations wants to grow the right way, for the right reasons, with the right people, and that common vision made this a really appealing team to join,” Opdycke said. “You don’t see that kind of culture that we have at Nations, at very many other places.”
