American Mortgage & Realty Corp. was formed in July of 2001 and has grown to become one of the Midwest’s leading privately held commercial mortgage banking companies. AMR achieved a most successful start and has enjoyed strong growth and consistently profitable operations every year since the Company’s founding. AMR maintains a strong balance sheet funded entirely with equity and the Company has no short-term or long-term debt.
In our continued efforts to increase AMR’s mortgage loan production, AMR expanded its staff with the following individuals in 2012:
- Jason Krcmery, CFA, joined AMR in February of 2012. Jason has 10 years of investment management experience having worked for the last 5 years in Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance Company’s Investment Division managing various fixed income portfolios and serving on its Investment Committee. Jason recently received his MBA from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and brings to AMR both a strong educational background and an excellent understanding of a life insurance company’s investment requirements.
- Angie Biddle was promoted to Vice President of Administration for AMR in June of 2012. Angie has been with AMR since September of 2001. Over this period, Angie has grown to know all aspects of our Company’s operations including loan underwriting, loan production, loan closing, loan servicing and administration and the corporate and administrative functions required to maintain AMR’s success. We congratulate Angie on a very successful transition in taking on her new responsibilities and helping AMR achieve its goals in 2012.
- Noni Nierenberg joined AMR in late 2011 opening a Southern California Regional Office. The California market has provided AMR with many strong commercial mortgage lending opportunities over the years and we expect this will be stronger with Noni representing AMR in California. Noni provides AMR with a very deep wealth of knowledge in commercial real estate finance having worked in this area for more than 25 years. Noni received her Masters in City & Regional Planning from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
- Rheanna Putt joined AMR as Assistant Vice President of Mortgage Loan Servicing & Administration in June of 2012. Rhea has been a great addition and has been quite successful in her new position. Rhea came to AMR with 10 years of experience servicing a $660 million portfolio of residential loans for Star Bank and was highly qualified to assume her new position with AMR.
