University of Massachusetts graduate Norm Fitzgerald has been named the new SVP of field sales at National Mortgage Insurance Corporation (National MI), a subsidiary of NMI Holdings, Inc.
Fitzgerald served as SVP of correspondent lending with Nationstar Mortgage immediately prior to his appointment with National MI.
"I am excited to be joining National MI as the company continues its rapid growth and I look forward to working with the company's talented sales force as we offer industry-leading solutions for private mortgage insurance," Fitzgerald said.
Fitzgerald previously worked in a variety of executive positions with CitiMortgage for 10 years, after which he moved on to PHH Mortgage as SVP of correspondent lending.
From there, Fitzgerald went to a similar position at Nationstar, where he built the company's correspondent lending program from the ground up. Within a year, Nationstar's newly-launched correspondent platform was one of the nation's top 10 correspondent lenders.
"Norm's experience in the mortgage industry and his leadership skills make him a perfect fit to head National MI's field sales," said Pete Pannes, EVP and head of sales at National MI. "He has a proven ability to successfully lead and motivate a nationwide sales team, and will bring a superior and collaborative approach to our customers."
