2021 HW Rising Star: Alex Khorn

Alex Khorn

Alex Khorn has been at FGMC since 2009, holding several different positions ranging from operations to secondary markets. Now as assistant vice president of margin management, Khorn has made a huge impact by helping form the wholesale channel and adapting to last year’s quickly-changing market conditions. He has also been instrumental in the non-QM space.

He is a true “Mortgage Maverick” because of his leadership in successful capital markets strategy and his ability to conquer projects like no other. Building an entire channel from scratch might be an overwhelming proposition for others, but Khorn was eager to jump in when FGMC announced it would be relaunching the wholesale channel. From creating the products, pricing them out, and managing partners like Optimal Blue, he was able to develop a channel positioned for strategic growth in the market.

What is one habit that has helped you succeed?
“Always trying to stay positive. Maintaining a positive attitude has allowed me to keep a level head during the most stressful of situations which we often come across in a volatile mortgage market. Having a positive attitude and outlook also allows me to better collaborate and build relationships with internal and external business partners within the industry.”
