Industry vet John Neihart returns to Movement as new Regional Sales Director, Northeast
LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA — Movement Mortgage (Movement), a national top 10 retail mortgage lender, is excited to reinforce its commitment to growth in the Northeastern United States with the return of industry veteran John Neihart as Regional Sales Director.
Neihart brings to Movement over 25 years of home financing experience. Just before his return to the company Neihart held similar roles at AmeriSave Wholesale Mortgage Solutions and Spring EQ, LLC. He first joined Movement in 2016 with the title of EVP – Movement Lending Services, a position he held for three years. Neihart’s formative years in the industry were spent at Quicken Loans, American Home Bank and Home Team Financial, a Union National Community Bank subsidiary.
In his new role at Movement, Neihart will build and lead sales teams in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
“I’ve known of John from afar for several years,” said Matt Schoolfield, Divisional Leader at Movement. “Not until recently, though, have I gotten to experience him and his calming and confident leadership qualities up close. Leaders are sometimes chosen, and at other times, they’re assigned. But I have no doubt that with John, his growing team will choose him daily.”
“The culture, mission and momentum established by Movement from the top down have set this brand apart in the mortgage industry,” Neihart stated. “I’m thrilled to be back, and it’s a privilege to spearhead new growth and development in the Northeast.”
A graduate of Millersville University, Neihart will lead from his hometown in Lancaster, PA, where he and his six children spend a fair amount of time hunting, fishing, playing tennis and dabbling in other sports and outdoor activities.
