John Kulka has joined Schmidt Mortgage Co. as manager of new business development.
A 25-year mortgage industry veteran, Kulka brings considerable experience in cross-selling mortgage products across related industries, affinity marketing and retail mortgage lending. Prior to joining Schmidt, he served as business development manager for another Ohio-based mortgage lender, SIRVA Mortgage, where he helped increase yearly volume from $250 million to more than $1 billion over his 14-year tenure.
“Ohio has seen a steady increase in mortgage volume, and with John’s ability to create additional business opportunities via cross-selling to the relocation and moving industries, we anticipate that Schmidt will be able to capitalize on increased market interest for mortgage products,” says Jeffrey Steed, executive vice president for Schmidt Mortgage Co., in a release.
Schmidt Mortgage Co. is a d.b.a. of Mid America Mortgage Inc., a multistate, full-service mortgage lender serving consumers and mortgage originators through its retail, wholesale and correspondent channels.
Since its inception in 1940, Schmidt Mortgage Co. has grown to become one of the leading Federal Housing Administration-, Veterans Affairs- and Fannie Mae-approved mortgage bankers in the state of Ohio.
