Matt Kingsborough Joins Planet Home Lending

Matt Kingsborough has joined Planet Home Lending as Regional Sales Manager, the company announced in a press release.

Kingsborough brings more than twenty years of industry experience to the position. He will oversee Planet’s expansion in the Western U.S.

Kingsborough said he emphasizes personal and professional development among employees, focusing on work-life balance to encourage growth and success in the lending business.

“I’m here to build on our presence in the West by fostering an environment where mortgage loan originators and branch managers can truly thrive,” he commented.

Prior to Planet, Kingsborough served as National Sales Director for Soar Energy Solutions, a solar provider, where he developed his leadership skills working with high-volume teams.

His past mortgage experience includes Northern California Regional Manager at Prospect Mortgage and Multistate Regional Area Manager for HomeBride Financial Services.

“Matt’s role is crucial as we look to attract and support the best talent in the industry,” said Planet Home Lending President, Mortgage Lending John Bosley. 

“His ability to mentor, coupled with a keen understanding of the mortgage landscape, makes him the perfect fit to lead our expansion efforts in the West. We’re not just announcing a new hire; we’re inviting mortgage professionals to join us in setting a new standard for success in the industry.”

The company is actively seeking new employees and companies to integrate as part of its aggressive expansion mindset. Last year it acquired Illinois-based retail lender Platinum Home Mortgage.

Doug Long, an industry veteran, also recently joined the team as senior vice president and divisional sales manager.

“We look to acquire right-sized, financially solid distributed retail companies,” Michael Dubeck, CEO and President of Planet’s parent company, noted.

Planet Financial Group is a Connecticut-based family of companies providing origination, servicing, and asset management solutions for the mortgage industry.
