Embrace Home Loans has announced the opening of its newest branch in Newport, Rhode Island. The branch will be headed by Dawn Ryan, one of the company’s leading lenders. Ryan will take on the role of the branch manager and lead the loan team as well as continue to disburse loans on his own.
According to Embrace, the Newport subsidiary will help expand the company’s retail presence in Rhode Island, where the company is headquartered and employs over 400 people.
“We are launching a business development campaign for Embrace Home Loans in Rhode Island, a state where we are already very well known,” said Steve Adamo, President of National Retail Manufacturing. “This is a natural step as we are based in Middletown and have an extremely strong presence in the community. With a proven track record in real estate and mortgage lending, Dawn is the ideal person to lead the new division. “
Ryan has been a Lead Mortgage Creator at Embrace Home Loans for over 10 years, and has consistently been featured on the Presidential Club list. She previously worked in the title industry and was also a realtor at Keller Williams Realty. Ryan is a member of the Newport County Council of Realtors, the Rhode Island Women’s Council of Realtors and the Newport County Chamber of Commerce, where she sits on the executive board of the Chamber Connections Group.
“The opening of this retail office will allow the team to further focus on Newport, Avidnek Island and the entire Rhode Island market,” Ryan said.
