The addition of Jack Lane as President of Southern Trust Mortgage is a key factor in the company’s upward trajectory.
Southern Trust Mortgage is thrilled to announce that effective October 1, 2018, Jack Lane will be joining the company as President. A widely-respected leader in the industry, Mr. Lane has over 25 years of experience leading multibillion-dollar retail mortgage lenders, including 7 years as President at Monarch Mortgage and TowneBank Mortgage.
Southern Trust Mortgage is uniquely positioned as a mortgage lender by having strong internal leadership, structure, and vision, as well as being backed by an established bank. Combining Mr. Lane’s proven leadership with a brand on the rise like Southern Trust creates a powerhouse that is primed for further expansion and influence. This comes on the heels of an already massive year for Southern Trust that included the release of their widely-praised Priority Approval initiative and a successful rebranding campaign.
“Given Southern Trust’s culture of putting their loan officers at the center of an amazing customer experience], this was the obvious choice for the next chapter in my career,” said Lane, “As I researched my options, it became clear that Southern Trust Mortgage has built an extraordinary platform that consistently delivers a level of service that loan officers and their customers can’t find anywhere else.”
