Krus name

As director of executive projects for Flagstar Bank, Ted Krus has led the sale of more than $1 billion in high-risk, underperforming assets. This move transformed the bank’s balance sheet and resulted in the lowest level of non-performing assets in Flagstar Bank’s 30-year history. 

Krus, who has worked at Flagstar since 2014, also led the project to create the Michigan-based bank’s appraisal panel for its retail mortgage channel, enhancing the customer experience and overall quality of originations. Krus also serves as an M&A core leadership team member for Flagstar, evaluating acquisitions for the bank, including its most recent acquisition, Stearns Lending, in April 2017. 

Krus also oversaw and completed a project with the company’s vendor services for the physical and electronic storage of the bank’s records management functions, resulting in reduced costs and increased efficiencies.
