Fairway Independent Mortgage Adds Three Leaders

Scott Bristol, Brian Chick and John Lowe of Fairway Independent Mortgage

Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation has added three new executives as part of the aggressive expansion of its production group, as Scott Bristol, Brian Chick and John Lowe have joined the full-service mortgage lender based in Madison, Wisconsin and Carrollton, Texas. .

“We are delighted to welcome Scott, Brian and John to Fairway, along with many others,” said Fairway CEO Steve Jacobson. “We have increased our number of creators by 30% over the past year.”

A year ago, Fairway had 1,864 loan officers on its team and since then has added LOs every month, currently employing more than 2,400 LOs nationwide.

Bristol joins Fairway as SVP, Sales and Recruitment, most recently with PrimeLending over the past eight years as President from 2014-2017, overseeing a volume increase from $4 billion to $15 billion. As senior vice president of domestic production for Flagstar Bank from 2018 to 2021, Bristol helped the lender increase its profitability from $4 billion to $11 billion over that three-year period.

Chick will serve as SVP, Area Manager for Fairway. He has spent the past 12 years at PrimeLending, most recently as a regional manager, and his team funded $2.3 billion in loans in 2021.

Lowe joins Fairway as SVP, Division Manager, and comes after an eight-year stint at RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing, where he was most recently Division Manager SVP, financing more than $1 billion last year.

“Fairway was my first phone call after leaving Prime,” Bristol said. “Fairway’s quick response, incredible culture and entrepreneurial model made it the place I wanted to be.”

Fairway Independent Mortgage currently employs over 9,000 team members in 700 branches nationwide. In 2021, the company funded $72.5 billion.
