Manufactured Housing lender Origen Financial has hired five industry veterans from Chase Home Finance for its structured transactions, retail sales and business development groups. Don Scarmuzzi joins as a vice president in the structured transactions group, Jim Bramlage as senior vice president of sales, Kevin Brady as vice president of national broker and correspondent lending, Jerry Plumlee as vice president of business development in the West Region and Wayne Carpenter as vice president of business development for the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regions.


"We feel that we were very fortunate in being able to restructure our sales organization to take advantage of the significant talent that became available as a result of the Chase departure from manufactured housing," said Ron Klein, Origen's CEO. "We expect that customary lag times will mean that the loan origination volume impact from these additions will not be felt until later this year and beyond."
