Plaza Announces New Wholesale Executive Team

Plaza Home Mortgage, a wholesale and correspondent mortgage lender, made several changes to the leadership of its Wholesale Lending team. Jeff Leinan, former Executive Vice President, National Wholesale Production, will assume the newly created role of President of Wholesale Production and Allyson Foley has joined the team and will assume the role of Executive Vice President, Wholesale Operations.

Jeff has been with Plaza for nearly 14 years. He first joined the company in 2008 as a Divisional Executive and was promoted to Executive Vice President in 2018. In his new role, Jeff will be responsible for all aspects of origination, underwriting and production for the company’s wholesale lending division.  

Allyson joins Plaza from Stearns Lending where she was Executive Vice President, Operations, and was responsible for operations and underwriting for the company’s Wholesale platform. In her new position at Plaza, Allyson will align the company’s regional Wholesale operations into a more unified approach.

In announcing the new leadership structure, Kevin Parra, Plaza’s Chairman and CEO said: “Plaza’s Wholesale channel continues to distinguish itself among its peers by delivering the best value to our brokers and their borrowers. This is a direct result of our technology, scale, customer-first focus and our leadership within the channel. I’m confident that Jeff, Allyson and their teams will continue to drive success in 2022 and beyond.”
