ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Angel Oak Companies is proud to announce the next chapter in its growth story as it names four new executives to its leadership team. Those new executives include:
- Matt Henson, Chief Human Resource Officer
- Al Stanley, Chief Information Officer
- Steven Winokur, Chief Marketing Officer
- Nick Mantia, Vice President of Training
In addition to naming new executives, affiliates of Angel Oak Companies increased staff 27% in 2016 with plans to grow on a similar trajectory in 2017. In particular, Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions is looking to double their sales force in the coming year. This balanced approach to strengthening the Angel Oak Companies team, both in the front office as well as in the field, positions Angel Oak Companies to accelerate their growth and innovation.
“With these new additions to our leadership team, we’re setting the framework for continued scalable growth throughout our affiliated companies,” says Michael Fierman, managing partner of Angel Oak Companies. “Our vertical structure has positioned Angel Oak Companies as a leader in the mortgage industry, and these new additions to our leadership team allow us to grow across the industry, from loan originations to securitizations.”
Since its inception in 2008, Angel Oak Companies’ growth story has been nothing short of robust:
- Assets under management (AUM) for Angel Oak Capital Advisors grew from $10 million to over $6 billion
- Loan production across its lending platform reached an all-time high in 2016 of over $1 billion from loans originating in 33 states. Their loan production has been assessed by Fitch and DBRS.
- Angel Oak Capital Advisors successfully launched a European UCITs fund that has grown to over $250 million USD in AUM.
- The Capital Markets group has completed four securitizations (FINS I, AOMT 2016 I and II and AOMT 2017-1). The securitization of AOMT 2017-1 was Angel Oak’s first rated transaction, receiving ratings from Fitch and DBRS.
- Angel Oak is a three-time winner of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplace award and was named one of Atlanta’s fastest growing private companies by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in three consecutive years.
“We’re continuing to strengthen our leadership team in key areas to support the tremendous growth across multiple business channels, primarily, asset management, lending and capital markets,” says Fierman. “We’re well-positioned to continue being the industry leader in specific segments of the credit markets. Our comprehensive business platform allows us to be innovative in turning today's lending challenges into tomorrow’s investment opportunities.”
