Edited 23/10/20

TUSTIN, Calif., Oct. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — New American Funding, one of the nation’s top independent mortgage lenders, is proud to announce that two of its top employees were named to the inaugural Black Leaders Worth Watching list by Profiles in Diversity Journal.

Dwayne Graham, the Branch Manager of New American Funding’s Sugar Land, Texas location, and Anthony Holt, a Sales Manager at the company’s office in Durham, North Carolina, were both winners of the magazine’s first Black Leaders Worth Watching Award.

“These outstanding leaders demonstrate their talents and skills, their dedication to excellence in all they do, their willingness to mentor and support the next generation, and their commitment to the larger community,” the magazine said of the winners.

Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Graham (NMLS# 243824) came to the U.S. at 19 and became a homeowner at 21, which provided him with the ability to humanize the homeownership process. Graham now has more than 15 years of experience in the mortgage business and maintains strong relationships with real estate agents, home builders, and his clients.

Holt (NMLS# 75606) uses his 20 years of mortgage industry experience in his role of mentoring and leading a rapidly growing team of mortgage professionals who are passionate about educating homebuyers. He is constantly looking to add new team members who are like-minded in the fight for racial equality and is driven to take his team and New American Funding to the next level.

“We are so proud of Anthony and Dwayne and thrilled to see them honored by Profiles in Diversity Journal,” New American Funding President Patty Arvielo said. “We are proof that a diverse and inclusive work environment is the key to success, but we also know that the fight for equality is nowhere near over. We’re proud to continue the fight.”
