We are beyond proud to share the news that Anchor Loans CFO Bryan Thompson has been selected by Housing Wire as one of their 2022 Financial Leaders award recipients.
The HousingWire Finance Leaders awards recognizes the top finance executives who are driving financial performance, expanding margins, improving liquidity and helping their businesses access the capital markets. The Finance Leaders are selected by HousingWire’s Selection Committee based on professional achievements within their organizations, contributions to the overall housing economy, client impact and personal success.
Bryan was recognized for his efforts in helping finance the company’s accelerated organic growth and his leadership in attracting Anchor's new owner. Bryan played a significant role in the negotiations between Anchor and Pretium that resulted in Pretium’s acquisition of Anchor in November. Anchor finished the year with a record $1.8 billion in originations and, to date, is the only fix and flip lender to surpass the $10-billion origination mark.
“When we launched the Finance Leaders award in 2021,HousingWire sought to recognize the forward-thinking finance executives who contributed to their organizations’ financial growth and strategic missions despite the challenges of the pandemic,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. "We never anticipated the volatile mortgage rate environment, supply and demand imbalances and overall market challenges that housing executives have endured over the last twelve months. HousingWire Finance Leaders are truly masters at managing liquidity, executing M&A and strategic deals and developing impenetrable balance sheets to position their businesses for enduring success."
“We’re very proud Bryan has been recognized by HousingWire,” said Andy Pollock, Chief Executive Officer of Anchor Loans “Bryan’s contributions to Anchor over the past 5 years, and especially over the past 12 months, have directly impacted our continued success and expansive growth. It is fitting that Bryan should be singled out for this award because he truly is an exceptional CFO.”
