Heejin Kim to Launch New Division for Midwest Equity Mortgage as Celebrity Mortgage

Midwest Equity Mortgage (“MEM”) announced today that Heejin Kim has recently agreed to join the company.  Ms. Kim has had an extensive and very successful mortgage banking career that spans 30 years and has involved almost every facet of the mortgage industry.

As a top-producing loan officer and the founder of two companies, Ms. Kim has funded well over $3 billion over the course of her career. Most recently, Ms. Kim co-founded and managed JVM Lending, a company that enjoys a tremendous reputation for its systems, recruiting, training, business development, online reviews and operational efficiency. Ms. Kim will remain influential within JVM but is able to focus on new opportunities precisely because she helped turn JVM into a self-managing company, a skill she hopes to share with future MEM partners.   

Building upon MEM’s growing retail channel and the value proposition created by Celebrity Financial’s recent acquisition of MEM, Ms. Kim will head the company’s recruiting division. She will employ her extensive contacts throughout the mortgage industry to identify and recruit top retail team and loan officers who are a fit for Celebrity/MEM’s value propositions and culture. 

In announcing her transition, Ms. Kim stated, “I’m excited to be a part of a very unique and promising opportunity to grow our brand and bring some of the best minds and practices together to benefit from each other’s expertise.  Celebrity’s model of lean operations, no middle managers and total transparency is something that loan officers throughout the industry have been waiting for, and I am very confident that I explode with it here at Celebrity and MEM." 

David Robnett, CEO of Midwest Equity Mortgage and CEO and chairman of Celebrity Financial Inc., commented, “Heejin was the first person I thought to pursue and I’m absolutely sure her impact will be immense and pervasive throughout the entire company. She’s the perfect person to lead the launch of our Celebrity Mortgage brand, and I’m extremely excited to have her join our team as an equity partner.”
