American Home Mortgage, Melville, N.Y., has hired six high-level account executives away from Washington Mutual, Seattle, for its fast-growing correspondent division.A spokesman for American Home said the six were heavily courted by the nation's top mortgage banking firms but went with American Home because of its growth prospects. A few months back, National Mortgage News broke the story that WaMu was closing its traditional correspondent channel. The spokesman said he did not know for certain whether the six were slated to lose their jobs at WaMu but that he assumed as much. The new account executives and their respective regional offices include: Steven Campbell (Columbia, S.C.); Molly Gross (Grosse Pointe, Mich.); Mary Niederhaus (Sacramento, Calif.); Mary O’Connell (Nashville, Tenn.); Ed Robinson (Philadelphia); and J. Gordon Terry (Jacksonville, Fla.). American Home's correspondent division was launched a year ago and racked up $1 billion in production after seven months. The six joined American Home on July 3, bringing their AE total to 16. American Home can be found online at http://www.americanhm.com.
