As executive vice president of Business Development, Samantha Manfer is a visionary rainmaker who leverages the Planet Financial Group family of companies to generate fee-based income and maximize portfolio execution for private clients. During her eight years with Planet Home Lending, she has identified and implemented dozens of strategic initiatives that drove profitability and raised the Planet family of companies’ visibility as a multichannel platform focused in the residential and commercial servicing and lending spaces. Over the past year, the strategic partnerships Manfer developed with institutional private investors have helped fuel the company’s record-breaking profits and growth. As the end of coronavirus-related forbearance approached, Manfer pitched investors on the importance of effective default resolution and reperformance to fully capitalize on asset values. As she continued to attract private clients with portfolios advantaged by sophisticated management, Planet Home Lending’s third-party sub-servicing portfolio more than doubled.
