Eric Francis has been named VP of Finance at Columbus-based Go Mortgage, the lender announced in a press release.
“I couldn’t be more eager to get started with the GO Mortgage team. Being part of a forward-thinking company that has a diversified range of products and sales channels is truly invigorating,” Francis said.
He brings nearly three decades of financial management experience to the role, having held various leadership positions across the mortgage banking, home improvement, and financial services worlds.
Prior to Go, Francis served as VP of Mortgage at A+ Federal Credit Union. During his tenure there, he increased monthly origination volume by 300% by initiating secondary marketing relationships and adding government loan products.
His other experience includes leadership positions at Homeside Financial, Residential Finance Corporation, and Columbus Energy Concepts.
“We’re pleased to welcome Eric Francis to GO Mortgage. Not only does he bring decades of experience in finance and accounting leadership roles, but he also has hands-on expertise in sales, marketing, and loan servicing. Eric is a game changer,” said Michael Isaacs, CEO of GO Mortgage.
“He’s a proactive leader skilled at creating business and financial strategies that boost both revenue and profitability. We’re looking forward to partnering with Eric to advance our strategic goals and achieve long-term success.”
Go Mortgage is a national lender based in Ohio that provides a wide range of mortgage solutions, including conventional, FHA, VA, Construction, and USDA loans.
The lender has faced challenges this year, landing in the news thanks to a lawsuit claiming its former director of capital markets committed “corporate sabotage,” leading to millions of dollars lost.
The employee allegedly defamed the company to its partners, including warehouse lenders and the GSEs, contacting them “for purposes of defaming Go Mortgage and its officers and subjecting the company to ridicule” before quitting without notice.
