MiMutual Mortgage, the national retail channel for Michigan Mutual, Inc., has opened a branch in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis.
MiMutual is steadily growing its national footprint, having opened several branches this year with plans to open three additional branches in the western United States in the fourth quarter. Industry veteran Femi Oriogun is the branch manager for the new location.
“Femi has an excellent track record and is the kind of mortgage professional who will use his extensive experience to benefit both consumers and mortgage professionals,” said Daniel Jacobs, executive vice president of MiMutual Mortgage. “As MiMutual continues to expand its geographic reach, we look for talented leaders who understand our culture of service and our commitment to the community and believe that Femi is an excellent addition to the MiMutual team.”
Oriogun brings more than 20 years of mortgage industry experience to the position, which will help him in establishing MiMutual Mortgage as the go-to source for quality customer service. Oriogun was previously vice president at Finance of America in its consumer direct division. He previously owned and operated his own mortgage company for a number of years.
“There is a significant opportunity to bring MiMutual’s core values and high level of service to a market that is currently lackluster in this regard,” Oriogun shared. “Being able to share my knowledge and experience with a company that places the upmost importance on customer satisfaction, distinctive problem solving and commitment to personal growth will be very rewarding. These are characteristics I believe will be vital to the success and impact of this new branch.”
With a commitment to customer service and a variety of loan programs to fit customers unique needs, each branch is positioned for success whether transacting in person or remotely. The company leverages its proprietary Raving Fans Index to ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
“With rates still at a historic low, there are a growing number of options for mortgages,” Jacobs said. “We plan to leverage Femi’s direct to consumer expertise with the significant market opportunity to help consumers with their mortgage financing needs in many markets across the nation.”
