San Francisco, CA – The California Mortgage Bankers Association (CMBA) announced three new board members this month, including AJ George, Chief Administrative Officer, CMG Financial. Mr. George will join an established group of leading mortgage executives promoting advocacy, education, and connection within the mortgage industry and throughout the greater community.

Mr. George has a comprehensive lending background with abundant experience in correspondent, wholesale, and retail lending. He began his career with CMG Financial in 2005. During his tenure, he has served in positions in every facet of the organization.

HousingWire recognized Mr. George as one of the industry’s 2014 Rising Stars because of his success growing the correspondent lending channel as the National Correspondent Operations manager. In 2018, he is serving on the Fannie Mae Capital Markets Advisory Board and the Freddie Mac Capital Markets Advisory Board.
Currently, he oversees CMG Financial’s non-origination departments including secondary loan sales, capital markets, warehouse lending, and treasury management. He also holds an NMLS, Series 7, and Series 63 Licenses and has an extensive understanding of the financial industry and corresponding markets. As a CMBA Board Member, Mr. George will continue to advocate for responsible lending practices and homeownership. He will promote education opportunities for current and future mortgage professionals and home buyers alike, working closely with other mortgage industry leaders.
