Fleet Mortgage Group, Columbia, S.C., announced the appointment of Nancy Boles to a newly created position of senior vice president and director of marketing and communications.
She will be responsible for the development and implementation of marketing, advertising, and public relations strategies at Fleet.
Previously, Ms. Boles was senior vice president of marketing, communications, and corporate development at Arbor National Mortgage, Westbury, N.Y. While employed at Arbor, she launched such programs as tree planting, bridal registry, and affordable housing. Arbor was acquired by BankAmerica Corp. last year.
The acquisition earlier this month of Plaza Home Mortgage, Santa Ana, Calif., will bring Fleet's combined servicing portfolio to $90 billion, making it the third-largest servicer in the country.
"Proper market positioning and increased name recognition will be extremely important as we begin to integrate the retail and wholesale origination networks of Plaza Home Mortgage into Fleet," Ms. Boles said.
Integra Mortgage Co., Pittsburgh, named Stephen J. Warren a regional vice president. He will be responsible for wholesale mortgage originations for the Southeast.
"Steve's expertise will be invaluable as we capitalize on wholesale opportunities and expand our business across the country," said John T. Gregor, president.
Earlier, Mr. Warren served as regional vice president for wholesale originations in the eastern U.S. for Household Mortgage Services.
