“Bob and I are particularly passionate about serving the home loan needs of the markets we have called home almost our entire lives. We view it as applying large lender know-how in a very customer and market focused way.
Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) February 7, 2011
After working together for more than two decades, two seasoned former Wachovia Mortgage executives have joined forces to launch Envision Mortgage Corporation. Robert (Bob) Weber and Melanie Orlando set their sights on the start-up after Wells Fargo's recent acquisition of Wachovia Bank.
Weber and Orlando combine the sophistication and expertise acquired as senior leaders within one of the nation's largest mortgage lenders with an intimate knowledge of the local markets. Both are College of Business graduates of East Carolina University and have resided in various cities throughout North Carolina virtually their entire lives.
"The events of the past few years have unfortunately created more complexity and challenge in obtaining home financing," said Weber. "It is more important than ever for consumers to have the confidence and trust that their mortgage lender is helping them obtain the best financing solution."
The new company is based in Wilmington, North Carolina, and is actively looking to hire loan originators. Besides serving the city in which Weber and Orlando have resided for many years, Envision will also focus on other key markets such as Raleigh, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Greenville, Fayetteville and Jacksonville. Weber will serve as Envision's CEO, while Orlando is the company's President.
Orlando added, "Bob and I are particularly passionate about serving the home loan needs of the markets we have called home almost our entire lives. We view it as applying large lender know-how in a very customer and market focused way. We are very excited about building new relationships and expanding our personal connections."
Both Weber and Orlando with 60+ years combined experience, have held a multitude of positions throughout their careers. Most recently prior to the new venture, Weber served as Mortgage Banking Executive heading Wachovia's Corporate Mortgage Services. The business unit employed in excess of 500 associates at its peak, primarily focusing on providing residential mortgages sourced through internal and external strategic partnerships.
Before her current position, Orlando was Key Relationship Executive and Managing Director within Wachovia's Direct Lending Division, overseeing important internal partnerships such as Wachovia Securities and Wealth Management.
Weber related the duo's recent past experience with their new company's mission this way, "Just like the way we approached those partnerships, Envision Mortgage will work hard to understand each client's unique needs, anticipate their priorities, and exceed their expectations 100% of the time. And, we greatly encourage everyone to contact us to discuss those unique needs so we can find the right financing solution for them."
