Chris Hill
United Wholesale Mortgage Team Leader in Capital Markets, Age: 37

Prior to his career in finance, Chris Hill spent 10 years playing professional basketball in France, Belgium and Turkey. Now, Hill is a well-respected leader in the mortgage industry and leans on his basketball experience as he leads more than 20 team members. Hill joined United Wholesale Mortgage in 2015 as a member of the business innovation group, where he uncovered areas where UWM could improve efficiencies and help its broker partners grow. In his following role as liaison between the secondary marketing and sales teams, Hill exemplified his leadership skills by creating a new synergy between the two teams that didn’t previously exist. This synergy led to several successful collaborative initiatives, such as company exclusives like Exact Rate, which allows mortgage brokers to offer borrowers custom rates to the thousandth decimal point and outprice their competition. In 2019, Hill was promoted to his current leadership position within the UWM capital markets team and helped lay the groundwork for the company’s record-breaking production year.
