Jim Clapp, senior vice president in charge of warehouse lending at Guaranty Financial Group, is leaving the bank, industry sources told National Mortgage News. Clapp declined to comment on the matter.
He is expected to take a job with a mortgage banking company based in Texas. The Austin-based GFG is winding down its warehouse lending business but will continue to fund lines that are not set for expiration until 2010. GFG, whose shares trade for less than $1, is trying to shrink its balance sheet in an effort to preserve capital.
In a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the depository said it would not file its annual report and 10-K on time. The thrift has been hit by large markdowns on its MBS and commercial real estate portfolios.
