Lender Branches Out

Supreme Lending, a Dallas-based nationwide mortgage banker, has opened a branch in Sacramento, California. Industry veteran Scott Bruns has joined Supreme Lending as the branch manager for the new location. He plans to open three satellite branches in the greater Sacramento area in the next several months, and a total of six to 10 branches throughout the state by the end of 2014. The new and upcoming branches are part of Supreme Lending’s growth plan, which includes expansion in California and the Western U.S.

Bruns has worked in the mortgage industry for more than 24 years. Prior to joining Supreme Lending, he was an area manager for WJ Bradley Mortgage Capital, where he oversaw 24 loan originators. He also held senior sales executive positions with Sierra Pacific Mortgage, Western Bancorp, Paramount Equity and several other mortgage and financial services companies.

Bruns has appointed 13 new employees, which include loan officers, processors and sales managers, to work in the Sacramento branch. He is also overseeing a satellite branch in Irvine, California.

“Our staff is comprised of veteran industry professionals, many who have worked together in the course of their careers,” said Bruns. “It was important to staff our branch with people who know the business inside and out, and thrive on helping and interacting with our customers. Our professional cohesiveness is a big part of our customer service.”

Supreme Lending was recently named to the Dallas Business Journal’s Best Places to Work list, and won the Dallas 100 Award, which identifies and honors the 100 fastest growing privately held companies in the Dallas area.

“Scott and his team use expert knowledge and customer care to differentiate themselves in the marketplace,” said Rick Hogle, COO of Supreme Lending. “That’s one of our credos here at Supreme. Everyone at headquarters is dedicated to supporting our associates, just as they are dedicated to supporting their customers. We welcome the Sacramento branch to Supreme Lending, and look forward providing the support they need to thrive in today’s challenging market.”
