U.S. Bancorp has plucked longtime lending executive Tom Wind from EverBank Financial to run its mortgage business.

Wind will succeed Rick Aneshansel, who is retiring, as president of U.S. Bank Home Mortgage. He is scheduled to start Jan. 4, the company said in a news release Thursday.

Wind was most recently executive vice president of residential and consumer lending at Jacksonville, Fla.-based EverBank. He is a former certified public accountant and has held top positions at several lenders including Aurora Loan Services, JPMorgan Chase and Citicorp Mortgage.

U.S. Bank is one of the largest home lenders and servicers. It has funded more than $55 billion in home loans and serviced roughly $300 billion in mortgages this year.

Aneshansel was the chief financial officers of U.S. Bank Home Mortgage from 1995 to 2013, when he was elevated to president of the unit.

Also on Thursday, EverBank made several executive moves in response to the Wind announcement.

EverBank named John Pataky executive vice president of its consumer division; Pataky has been an executive vice president for banking. It also named Tony Clintock and Shelly Kobb as co-heads of home lending. Clintock had been a senior vice president and national retail sales executive; Kobb was a senior vice president and head of correspondent lending.
