First Guaranty Mortgage appointed Amy Ellenburg as regional third-party originator for correspondent lending, the company said.

In her new role, Ellenburg will recruit account executives for FGMC’s correspondent lending division as well as grow that group’s production channel. She also will assist with the wholesale division.

Previously, she worked as divisional manager of community banking at Acopia Capital.

"Amy puts people first, and understands that mortgage lending is about much more than formulas and numbers," said Andrew Peters, CEO of FGMC.

He added, "Throughout her career, she has excelled at building and maintaining relationships with customers, peers and team members, which will make her a major resource for FGMC’s correspondent partners."
