U.S. Bank’s Fred Bolstad to speak at Spring Summit

Will address operational strategies in the current market

Fred Bolstad, executive vice president of retail lending at U.S. Bank Home Mortgage, will speak on a panel titled What Mortgage Tech is Solving Now at HousingWire’s Spring Summit on March 4.

Bolstad will be joined on the panel by Dave Vermillion, founder and CEO of Mortgage Champions, and Lisa Patterson, chief originations officer at Homepoint.

At U.S. Bank Home Mortgage, Bolstad is responsible for over 4,000 employees, including nearly 1,400 mortgage loan officers. He leads both retail sales and operations, a channel that originated over $47 billion in 2020.

The Summit’s packed agenda has 14 sessions, with topics including:

  • Mortgage disruption outlook
  • Servicing challenges in a pandemic period
  • eClosing/RON update
  • A new regulatory regime

The summit also features sessions on lessons from local markets, an economic update and more.
