Trinity Oaks Mortgage announced last week that James Hinton has been named the executive vice president of the Red Oak-based company, bringing 46 years of mortgage industry experience to the growing company.

Hinton will work closely with the post-closing and secondary department to increase secondary marketing and secure government entities such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for post-closing procedures. He will also work with the compliance department on state licensures and quantifying pre- and post-closing QC metrics.

TJ Henley, president of Trinity Oaks Mortgage, said, “James will be a great asset in helping me and our team with strategic growth strategies and implementation. We are excited to add James and his years of experience in mortgage banking to our leadership team.”

Hinton is a graduate of Southern Methodist University and began working in mortgage banking in 1972. Since then, he has held various executive level positions with bank-affiliated and independent mortgage companies. “I am excited to join the Trinity Oaks Mortgage team and work with TJ and his dynamic team," Hinton said. "We plan to grow something special that contributes to our communities and the Kingdom.”

According to the official announcement, Trinity Oaks Mortgage sets itself apart as a professional mortgage lender who orchestrates a unique and straightforward home buying experience.

"From the time a customer begins the application, their team’s objective is to uncover their financial goals and create a home buying experience that is both easy to understand and tailored specifically to their home financing needs," the release adds. "While they have a well-earned reputation in providing support for their customers through all stages of the home buying process, they continually strive to build lifelong relationships with their customers that last well beyond the funding of their dream home."
