About Sam Ellsworth
Sam EllsworthSVP, National Retail Sales, New American Funding
Sam works closely with the core sales force to increase their loan production while coming alongside regional managers to expand their market share. He also simultaneously recruits new loan teams to build upon New American Funding's existing workforce and to continue increasing its profitability.
Sam began with the company in June of 2011 after being attracted to New American Funding's technology, industry-leading close times, and quality leadership. Sam believes collaboration, competitiveness, and connectedness have been the driving force behind this record-breaking growth and he's most proud that the retail lending division has developed organically, one new location at a time while maintaining the integrity of the company's culture. Presently, Sam oversees 12 major markets and is actively working to expand New American Funding's presence into 33 states over the coming years.
He has worked in mortgage banking in various capacities for more than two decades and prior to coming to New American Funding, Sam held a regional leadership position at Trust One Mortgage Bankers where he built a strong retail presence within Orange County in less than one year. As a 26-year veteran of the industry, Sam is passionate about growing and grooming the next generation of Loan Originators. He believes in leading from the front and inspiring his teams to continue reaching new levels of professional and personal achievement every day.
