Wayne Thompson entered the mortgage business in 1973 while still in college. During his first 4 years he worked in collections, serviced commercial loans, and also supervised all servicing activities. In 1977 he started originating residential loans with a peak year of personal production totaling 702 loans. In 1987 Wayne was hired by a large regional bank to start and run their local mortgage operation. In the third year his branch was first in production and second in profitability out of 102 branches. In 1991 he started his own company which he ran successfully for 19 years at which time he decided to pursue some consulting opportunities while still originating loans for a local lender.Currently Wayne's consulting work has mainly been focused in three areas:

1) Helping depository institutions expand their mortgage operation by adding new products such as FHA, VA, RHS, state housing agency lending, and reverse mortgages

2) Helping existing mortgage operations grow their origination volume through the development of affinity programs with employers and organizations, attracting more builder and Realtor referrals, and by creating focused consumer direct marketing.

3) Wayne also does a lot of FHA condominium approvals mainly for developers and existing HOA's.

Wayne earned his Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) designation in 2004. He is also a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA). In addition Wayne has been honored on the national level by the MBA of America and on the state level by the MBA of Kentucky.
